This is real!

Okay, so this is how I imagine this conversation went!

Bakery Employee: 'Hello 'dis be Walmarts, how can I help you?'
Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'
Bakery Employee: 'What you want on 'dat cake?'
Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.

I heard that's pretty much how it went. So sad and terribly funny, but mostly sad.

It really is an ugly cake, James! Probably tastes like cardboard too. I guess you get what you pay for -Walmart! ewwww

I've always thought sheet cakes were tacky anyway. At least this one is memorable. ;)

Guess dialect and delivery are so very important.
I must admit that I had to chuckle and I hope Suzanne did too.

Yes, it makes for a memorable going away party -who knows...maybe it was planned? I guess she did like it if she sent pictures of her cake all over the 'internets'.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't this happen in Trinidad? At one of the supermarkets?
It would explain the colour combo and the "neat'. But, I bet it is delicious. Trinidadians love their food.

I actually don't know where it came from, HOBAC; it was forwarded to me in an email passed around my office and I just loved it! Good to know where it comes from! Don't buy cakes in Trinidad!

You have GOT to be kidding me. This is HI-FREAKIN'-LARIOUS shit!

And, yes, the color combo is, um, well, pretty awful. Wow.

PD - a similar thing happened to me this year with one of those cookies from Mrs. Fields -they got the shape of the cookie wrong TWICE (after we complained after hte first one was wrong) and got the text wrong on the first one (which was supposed to be a surprise!) -oh and the cookie tasted AWFUL!!!! Never again!
