The kids love competitive cake baking, but after six hours of drinking beer, they can get a bit unruly.
Today's Full Strip
Cake-show hecklers? Santa Royale must be short on Mixed Martial Arts and Cage Wrestling shows--and the indoor soccer league hasn't been in town since last year. People gotta have an outlet for their aggression, y'know.
On Monday, I was going to comment that gasping from the audience is better than laughter. But obviously I was wrong!Based on the shadow of her dress and her waist being almost at the level of John's knees, Mary appears to be kneeling. I hope she's been doing squats at the gym, or she'll never be able to get back up while holding that monstrous cake.(My first PYNAR image today doesn't show a number, because I think it is a picture of a toilet tank.)
Uh-oh... from Mary's expression in panel two, I'm wondering if she's thinking of showing that blowhard in the audience a thing or two by gathering her super-human granny powers and flinging the pink wonder right at his annoying mug.
Cake show, mixed martial arts contest, monster truck rally... it's all the same in Santa Royale. Biff puts on his letter jacket, has a snort or two and takes Mary Jo out to loosen her up.
I was thinking the same thing. It looks like Mary is about to transform into the Incredible Hulk. At least there'd be something green for the "nature" theme.
It looks to me like Mary is about to push the whole cake to John and then climb into the seats to take on that hooligan. This reminds me of the time that Albert Belle threw a baseball at a heckler at Jacobs Field. Maybe the Cake Commissioner will level a suspension and fine at Mary.
That's tough talk for a cake-topper sized lady. Maybe her size is symbolic of how deeply heckling hurts, but Mary has shrunk to half the height of the prep counter.
@heydave is the winner today.I'm still predicting that M&G will not get the cake to the table until Friday, hecklers or no hecklers.
Throw the cake, Mary!! Go ahead, THROW IT!!!!!
The heckler is just in from several hours of tail-gating in the Convention Center parking lot.
Senior citizens just don't get the respect that they used to.
This just in from SRCC: Cake tech Mary Worth climbed into the stands to confront a heckler, only to realize he was actually her grandson.
Is bringing a transport cart to the contest against the rules or something? This is seeming more and more like a geriatric triathalon event. It would be great if Mary screams out the F-word (uhhh... frosting)to the heckler tomorrow.
FROST YOU LOSER! Shut your cake hole or I'll come up there and cut you!
This is exactly why Santa Royale has banned model railroad shows. The crowd riots from the last one destroyed half of downtown.
Why would the kind of young person who heckles old ladies actually SIT THROUGH SIX HOURS OF CAKE BAKING?
This is like one of those lame-o public service commercials from my youth about 'juvenile delinquents' harassing and mugging little old ladies... and is just as ridiculous!!I would like to see Mary go ballistic and throw John Dill's pink creation, though.
Mary said that she takes no prisoners - if John Dill drops the cake he's a dead man.
It's not nice to heckle Mother Nature.
I realize Mary Worth herself dates from the Paleolithic era, but hasn't the wheel reached Santa Royale yet, so they could use carts?I WOULD like to see her vault into the audience and take down the heckler, though. With the aid of that Dalek behind her.--Beagle Vet
IMHO Panel 2 should also be on the list for Panel of the Year. What is that, three or four already? Wanders, you may have to split that category up due to all of the fabulous contestants!--Beagle Vet
From Wikipedia: "cake competitions often require that a cake reaches a minimum height, exhibits a certain theme, and is able to be moved to a judging table without falling over."Three feet tall? Check.Exhibits a certain theme? uhhh...Without falling over? Remains to be seen.
Thoughts of the day:--They should cut off beer sales as the cakes come out of the oven.--For Mary to be a granny, she'd need to have had her the late Mr. Worth or Dr. Jeff up for more than lemonade after dinner at the Bum Boat. Ewww.--If Mary goes up into the stands to take on the heckler, will she later change her name to Mary World Peace?--Read the first panel in the voice of Nelson Muntz from the Simpsons. The 'ha-ha' is that much better.--Lift with your knees John Dill--the knees, not the back.
* The orange, black and pink color scheme is to remind us of Dr. Jeff's car.* The baking table is rising up into the air now that it is free of the great weight of the pink cake.* Chin Napkin looks great!!
Ah, the brash young cake show hooligans! Their roots began in Scotland, back in the 60's, during the Shortbread Riots. It has been rumored that it all began when an angry young man threw a buttered scone at and elderly woman, causing her to lose her balance, trip and fall, dropping a cake she was carrying. In retaliation, her partner baked a batch of rock-hard biscuits, and threw them at the hooligans, killing and wounding several.To this day, the hooligans attend every cake and baking competition, and mock elderly female contestants, to avenge their fallen mates. Speaking of Scotland, I wonder if Ian took part in the hooligan shenanigans?
So if John Dill's dream is to design cakes, which I'm guessing means that he wants to start a cake design business (unless he and Mary are going to go around the country entering cake contests) AND since pink cake is the size of a wedding cake, which he would presumably end up baking a lot of, wouldn't he have to move cakes this size all the time? If he has trouble moving this cake, won't he have trouble moving all his creations? Maybe he should consider some other hobby?
Och, Maude Findlay, cannae ye shaw a bit ay respect fur Professur Ian Cameron fa ne'er threw anythin' at anyain. It's his feelings ye ur hurtin' an' he main hae tae telephain ye at midnecht an' play th' bags at ye.
Not the Cake, your thoughts are logical, and as such, have no business on this blog.
Suddenly, the lights go out...
LOL Sorry, Meg.
Is that a box of cake mix sitting on the prep table? Has John Dill been using Betty Crocker Pink Cake Mix instead of baking from scratch?
Thursday: In another truly amazing feat, Mary has changed into her Marriott/Mary Ought apron while lugging the cake to the judges' table (which has shrunk alarmingly).The TV camera reminds me of the "new Soviet minicamera" on the fabled SCTV sketch "What Else Fits into Mother Russia?"
At least Mary is still gratified to be glorified in goo.
Again, we have another laughable storyline here. Moy missed the whole point of the challenge involved in transferring the cakes from the work area to the display table. It is not that the competitors create cakes that are so heavy it is difficult to lift and carry them. It’s the fact that the cake may have delicate elements, such as components made of spun sugar, or design flaws which cause parts of it to be unstable, as in the video of the Dora cake. Having members of the audience taunt the contestants is simply inane. But then, much of what goes on in the Worthiverse is.
Oh Wanders, please post today! There have been some crucial developments at the locally televised cake contest! For example, John Dill and Mary Worth have carried their cake to the clearly labeled Judge's Table instead of to the clearly labeled Cake Table which had their (separate) name cards on it! Plus, Mary Worth has some hair out of place! Meanwhile, pink Chin Napkin is still staying strong!
Hurrah, Maude! Ripping riposte, Meg!Thanks all for my daily laugh.Shabra in Pittsburgh
Seems as though Mary has dropped to her knees in an attempt to sabotage the startled J. Dill
