Yesterday was Melissa’s son Rory’s 12 birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY RORY!). Melissa asked if we should buy him a cake or make one. I love cooking/baking so I said I’d make him one.
Now, I’ve never made a cake before, let alone a birthday cake. So I scoured my AnyList app and found a recipe I had saved. It’s for “Black Magic Chocolate Cake” and OMG….
As I said on Twitter, “I don’t know much about the relevant law but there quite possibly might be ILLEGAL amounts of chocolate on this birthday cake I made!!”
Now, to be fair, we haven’t yet tasted it but I’m told by a reliable source (Melissa – who was *constantly* licking the bowl) that the icing itself is “to die for…”
UPDATE: OMG OMG OMG I’ve eaten a LOT of chocolate cake in my life but I can now unequivocally say, I JUST MADE THE BEST TASTING CHOCOLATE CAKE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.
So whoever does the Asus Twitter account had a major league brain fart very early this morning. They posted this picture from the Computex Show in Taiwan:
The problem isn’t the picture per se – it’s the numbnut commentary of it:
OK…while you are technically correct, you’re still a complete moron for saying so publicly as a representative of your company.
But even better is the usual handwringing by the usual suspects. Instead of blowing this off as the late night stupidity of one PR person who posted a colossally stupid tweet, The Usual Suspects are using this as yet another opportunity to rail against the inequality of the system. Guess what? WE KNOW.
