All that punctuation, yet it's still missing the comma...
Maybe the cake is supposed to be whispering...
People used (occasionally) extraneous quote marks. I'm *so* annoyed I'm going to blog about it immediately!!!Jeez. Big deal.
Yes!! Always wonderful to read about a fellow language lover defending our written word. Congratulations on the news write-up! I have bookmarked your page and look forward to many more blogs!As for the cake, I can just imagine three or four people huddling around the cake asking, "Does this look right to you?" "Nah, add some parentheses to it."
thats prett funny, a whole blog dedicated to this...nice job..I will be back, and maybe even send u some I find..;)
"Does this look right to you?" "Nah, add some parentheses to it."That's nearly as good as the cake itself.
LOVE this idea for a blog!
I love it. I'll try to send you photo submissions if I see anything and will visit often. It's hits a similar nerve with me.
I can actually explain this one. When you order a cake you have to write down what message you want printed on it. They write exactly what you have written on the paper including quotes and parentheses. I found that out when I ordered 100 "Science Fair" pencils!

This may sound really stiff, but you spelled parantheses wrong, I believe.
Anonymous is right. Who cares when you get more of the best part of the cake!?
The funniest thing about this is the caption below the picture. It is way over-puntuated, yet the writer is complaining about over-punctuation!?!? LOL ;}
I think that decorator took the instructions a little too literally.
I was just about to make a comment on the lack of comma...guess I'm not the only one whom it bothers.
I love this...I too can't stand the excess quote marks. My favorite is my mother in law in puts your name in quotes when she writes it on a card:Ie: Dear "Suzy"Wierd!!!
"The quotation marks, I suppose, you could explain away since the people are saying it, not the cake, but the parenthesis????"Shouldn't that be parentheses?
I saw an article on Yahoo about your blog and thought I'd take a gander.This is a great idea for a "blog". You "know", I think it's "fantastic"-what you're "doing".This cake, by the way-is obnoxious. :)
many people pointed out the typing error in parentheses. They are not crazy, I fixed it to be correct.
"Suzy" this is one case where it's not "i before e". It's "weird" not "wierd".
wow yeah the parentheses are a bit much.
All I can say is...poor Amy.
They got it from a Chinatown bakery.All those punctuations are Chinglish for ("Good Riddance")
Perhaps the parentheses are supposed to suggest whispering."Love" the "site."
OK, this is just being "hopeful", but (maybe) the cake was an inside joke among people who hate unnecessary punctuation ...
anonymous: I guess that's possible. In my family we intentionally get cakes that say "your the best" because the decorators made a mistake once.
Hey, any excuse for a little more icing sounds good to me!
