Some of my favorite new submissions this week.
Let's all take a moment to appreciate the good Samaritan who fixed this label:
I'm just glad I'm not the only one who noticed:
The good news is you can always rip their pudgy little legs off, switch 'em around, and then spend the rest of the party thinking about what you've done.
Speaking of baby showers, Ginny discovered the Carrot Jockeys before they were carrot jockeys:
Yes, those are deviled eggs. And yes, I'm hungry now, too.
At first Jamie balked at the high price of sheet cakes from her local bakery, but she felt better when they told her they'd "customize" the name for free.
MONEY WELL SPENT, am I right, Jamie?
I'm lucky enough to have not one, but TWO friends who are real live mermaids, so kids, trust me when I say growing up isn't so bad. (Pics, cuz it DID happen.)
Anyway, one of those mermaid friends had a birthday last week, and I found the perfect "cake" to celebrate:
Because I think it's supposed to be a mermaid. With no arms.
I mean, you probably got that, but sometimes you guys come here before coffee, so I'm just trying to help. I'll leave it to you to decide if those are eyeballs or eyelashes, though.
And finally, while scrolling through the archives this week I stumbled across another disarming gem I can't believe we've never posted:
It's supposed to be Britney Spears.
OK, so Busted Britney is a marvel in her own right, but what I really love is how someone at this party thought, "Hey, you know what else this thing needs? A President Obama photo cake."
That's like a whole new standard in party-throwing, my friends. Like, "yeah, cool party, bra, but is it Britney Boobs and Obama good? I don't think so." Because that's a level we can only aspire to.
Thanks to Jess H., Mary Ann M., Ginny D., Jamie, Xian D., & Eva, who never invite me to their wild parties even though I bring my own earplugs, book, and lap cat. YOUR LOSS, party people.
*Note from john: I put this Friday Favs up last week mistakenly for about 40 minutes before replacing it with the prince post. Sorry about that. Hopefully, most of you still haven't seen it. -j (thoJ)
