WHAT? One of those things chased me one night when I was coming home from a few hours at the pub.

I think he kind of sounds like a Pooka, except for that horn thing.

Have you ever seen the blog "Cake Wrecks"? They locate professionally done cakes with similar mistakes to what you mentioned, take pictures and post them. It is absolutely hilarious.

Pam- I know! My Dad said, "Hell, they didn't even know what DNA was when I was in school!"

Trudy- Yes! I've seen that! And when I saw the cake, it was the first thing I thought of. I wish I'd taken a picture. When I left I was irritated that I didn't do it. What a bunch of boneheads...

I love it when stupid crap like that (cake) happens!!

And the DNA thing? Too cool for school!

The cake thing is FUNNY, but not surprising these days.

And I LOVE the DNA item. I'm going to pass it along to some education folks at the zoo.
