1. I use a swear word in this blog. If you are easily offended, read no further.
2. I am tired to the bone of cupcake culture. I'm sick of hearing about cupcake recipes, cupcake websites, cupcake tools and other cupcake crap. I'm sorry. There it is. I'm a hater. I'll eat 'em, and they're fine and all, but good lord, move along. That being said, at one time, I thought they were grand. I named my big, mean tom cat Cupcake 40 years ago.
Anyway, Pootie forwarded me this email he got from Scharffen Berger Chocolate:
Blah blah blah, etc.
Me: What? What is this? You want me to get you some Cocoa Powder?
Pootie: No, you'd better participate or I'll be pissed off.
Me: Participate in what? Buying you hot cocoa mix?
Pootie: No! Enter that contest.
Me: What? Are you serious? Pootie, this is a CUPCAKE contest. I hate cupcakes. I'm so sick of hearing about cupcakes I can't see straight. Why would I enter a cupcake contest?
Pootie: Don't hate the cupcakes when you can win Scharffen- Berger shit!
I shall now add some "Scharffen Berger shit" to my Christmas shopping list for Pootie so that I do not have to bake cupcakes.
