FABULOUS GRAMMAR FRIDAY for October 24, 2008

Today's featured Fabulous Grammar Friday site is one of the most edible (or inedible, depending on how you look at it) and sweet sites out there. That's right, I'm talking about Cake Wrecks! Jen from Cake Wrecks finds pictures of the most deranged-looking cakes and posts them online. (Sometimes she finds pictures of truly amazing-looking cakes, too, but usually they're complete disasters.) Now, of course I like this site because Jen is a good writer and uses good grammar--always a bonus. But a lot of the disastrous cakes she finds have some really atrocious grammar errors and spelling mistakes on them! And--as you already know--I love looking at pictures of horrible/funny grammar. Especially when they're related to icing, fondant, frosting...mmm! Cake Wrecks is the calorie-free, grammatically correct, and snarky way for me to enjoy cakes, cupcakes, cupcake-cakes, and more!

Here are links to a few of the funniest grammar/spelling snafus featured on Cake Wrecks:

I wonder if my featured writer was a cake decorator before she graddiated from kollij and went to work for the nooz paiper ;-)

It's Your Damned Language

Yeah, that is such a good website! (I like your website too!)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha...or maybe she's just, you know, "special." ;)

Thanks, HLP! :) Yeah, I love Cake Wrecks...but I get kinda hungry every time I look at it!

Finally, someone to point out the astoundingly horrible writing that happens on cakes! I visit my local DQ on occasion to see some terrifying mangling of the language, and it always makes me smile. Then throw up a bit in my mouth. Then laugh. It's very confusing.

Nice! I love Cake Wrecks. My favorite is the fireman cake. On the congratulations one, I was kinda upset that she didn't post my "congratulation's" cake! It was my first A.C. posting ever.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ooh, WP, you're makin' me hungry just thinking of DQ! (Except that I'm allergic to cream, which means as much as I want DQ, no matter what, I can't have it...sigh.)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Awww, Becky--that'd have been cool had she posted your "congratulation's" cake! Maybe she'll do another post of screwy congratulatory cakes, and she'll post it then...? :)
