Okay, so the story goes something like this. An elderly gentleman is about to celebrate his 85th birthday. His four daughters plan the party at a local restaurant and one of the husbands is supposed to order the cake from the local grocery store. The cake is supposed to read: Happy 85th birthday, Dad.
But when the guy arrives at the store, the little Asian woman who decorated the cake informs him that all those words won’t fit across the top.
“Well, can you write it on the plate or something?” he asks.
The Asian woman says that should work and tells him to return in 30 minutes. He does some shopping, but is becoming increasingly anxious about time. He’s due at the restaurant shortly, where the festivities are being held. So when he picks up the cake, now boxed, he doesn’t check it.
He sets the cake in the passenger seat and speeds toward the restaurant. His wife and the other three sisters were worried that he was going to be late. They set the cake on the table and the man’s wife removes it from the box and sets it on the table. Uh-oh. The greeting is messed up.
“What should we do?” one of the sisters asks anxiously.
“Nothing,” says another sister. “It’s too late to change it.”
And just then, the birthday guy appears, sees the cake and its inscription, and explodes with laughter. Here’s what the cake said:
Sounds like the work of the trickster, doesn’t it?
You hear the oddest stories at the dog park.
