Thorax Cake, submitted by Dea. I firmly believe that there are some things that, although they may be excellent separately, should never be combined. For instance, pineapple and green peppers on pizza. Or church and state. Or, in this case, delicious, delicious cake and the human thoracic cavity. And yet, one woman with what can only be described as a metric shitload of time on her hands has desecrated the holy temple of cake by creating one of the most nauseating culinary projects outside of a Denny's.
The plan was for each organ to be made out of a different kind of cake and to secrete a different color of fluid when it was cut into.
Heart - orange cake with raspberry sauce
Lungs - apple spice cake with strawberry sauce
Kidneys - orange cake with blueberry sauce
Stomach - ginger cake with mango sauce
Liver - chocolate cake with kiwi sauce
Small Intestine - jelly roll with red currant jelly
While I cannot fault Barbara Jo, the woman behind this cakular atrocity, for poor website design or overwhelming insanity, like we usually like to do for our Awful Links, there are some things in life that are just not right. This cake freaks me out. The fact that there are three pages of text devoted to its creation freaks me out. The fact that anyone would actually take the time, patience, and ingredients to create something like this freaks me out. I do not like thoracic cavity cake. I do not like it Sam I Am.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Awful Links of the Day spotlights the worst and weirdest websites on the internet. And we're not talking "weird" in a good way either.
