A "Big" Contender

Saturday, June 18, 2011

It appears we have a last-minute entry for Father's Day Pictionary!

"Enjoy."


Admit it, Adam L: you see Cthulhu wearing Mickey Mouse ears in a spider cocoon, too.
Wolva said...

Wow, you're right! I do see Cthulhu in a cocoon wearing Micky Mouse ears...

J. said...

It sort of reminds me of Fudgy the Whale and those other great Carvel cakes (I'm talking to you, Cookiepuss) that served any occasion.

Lydia said...

FIRST COMMENT!

reginoz said...

It's Dad's fuzzy slipper and cigar.

Meghan Smith said...

I see Noah's ark on top of a big mammoth goat. Is this cake for Noah?

Anonymous said...

That looks like a really odd shaped tornado.

Dawn said...

Often with squinting and head tiliting I can see what the cake wrecker was aiming for...yeah, I have nothing besides a flock of crow's feet and a crick in my neck!

Anonymous said...

It's a rowboat on the ocean - where the prow broke off the rowboat and the ocean has a mustache, in addition to mickey mouse ears.

skinner studio said...

I'm guessing it's a surfboard catching the "big" one?

ensouling said...

If only I saw Cthulhu. I see Davy Jones. And not the Monkees Davy Jones, the other one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Jones_(Pirates_of_the_Caribbean)

KiriD said...

I was thinking blue fuzzy puppy dog slipper tied to a poo dirigible. Anyone else see that?

wv: Boollys: I wish those boollys would stop scaring the poo out of the decorators. We have enough poo cakes as it is.

Sharyn said...

But why is the cocooned Cthulhu being transported by a blimp? Going home? Watching a football game?

These are the kind of questions that keep me up at night.

Alice said...

Definitely Noah's ark, with an angry sheep drowning in the flood.

Gary said...

"Happy Falker Satherhood" is looking better all the time.

freaky_dragonlady said...

I'm sorry, there are words? All I could do was stare at the mustachioed mouse in the sea. Being crushed by something suspicious.

SuBee said...

It looks like the Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland surrounded by a "BIG" cloud of smoke.

Anonymous said...

Dad apparently likes clubbing blue baby seals....

Alison said...

its a BIG blue poop with a face!

Katie said...

It's obviously depicting dad hitting a poodle over the head with a boat oar.

Jennifer said...

I have nothing witty to add. This one hurts my head.

ELIZABETH said...

so what is that supossed to be?

Ms. MM said...

As Joel from MST3K would say, "...the hell?"

Michele Cullen said...

I have absolutely no clue whatsoever. Maybe half of the state of Tennessee on a blue rat?

Deana said...

What is this? All I see is a giant poop floating on ... river water? a blue butterfly? Something out of Lord of the Rings?

Kiraela said...

It's some sort of Stargate like portal into a world where wrecks like that make sense, of course!

Aramis said...

It's clearly the Mayflower after its masts broke off from crashing into Mickeythulhu.

Anonymous said...

Does it say "die" ??!
-Susana

Lynn said...

It is obviously a poo shaped blimp floating on a cloud that has the shape of a goat's head forming in it. It is a reference to the old Swedish folklore of Falker Slatherhood, a celebration of male fertility. I can't believe you didn't catch that. :)

Anonymous said...

OK, the blue thing is a slug with a mouse face. I have no idea what the brown part is. This cannot possibly be from a professional baker, can it?????

--KATP

erose1244 said...

Wow, usually I have an idea... today, I have nothing. Checkmate, Cake 'Maker', Checkmate.

Marytoo said...

I can't even guess.

Gillian said...

You know what's lamer than someone posting "First Comment," Lydia? Someone who posts it when they're not even first. Well done. ;)

Keith Moore said...

a.k.a. "Mr. Hankey has the blues".

joyceyens said...

OK, first time commenting. It's a hotdog and a blue twinkie

wv sporlega, Swedish name for a blue twinkie

Anonymous said...

OK, the whole family got into it and here is our list of serious guesses:
A blimp
a fuzzy slipper
A beaver with a big brown tail
beach with water
the end of a paddle in the water, the black squiggles are eddies.

The P family

Purpleladyflutterby said...

WTFIZAT!?? I can't even begin to fathom a guess I mean really WTFizat?

wafflegirl said...

It's clearly a blue and brown Mothra.

Anonymous said...

I see a blue hamster and one of this big ole turkey legs you get at the fair. Yep, this definitely reminds me of good ole Dad.

Kimberly Chapman said...

Wow. Um. WTF is that thing? That's um...uh...okay then. Oh I have an idea but it's too gross even for this blog. More like a South Park insult sort of thing since they've got one about a frozen feminine product. Nerds will know what I mean...



@Lydia @9:41: fail!

Anonymous said...

When asked, "What does this look like?" my 3-year old said "Cake." She seems to be going through a literal phase. At least she recognized what it is. My 6-year old's response was "A goat under water and the brown stuff is dirt." I think their guesses were better than mine. " I have no idea. Personally I would prefer a boring, plain cake to this.

Tori said...

Well, my daughter says it's a boat cake, so I'm going with that.

Brooke said...

a Saturday wreck. bonus!

Cami said...

Well see, the wreckerator got the 80's hit movie "Big" confused with another great 80's flick, "The Neverending Story." So clearly this is Falcor fleeing the Nothing. What this has to do with Father's Day, I can't say.

Piperx said...

Ooh, another Rorschach Cake Wreck. I love these!

Um... I see a butterfly. Darn, I only ever see butterflies in these things.

Cathy Raymond said...

It looks like a blue cat to me--not enough tentacle for a Cthulhoid.

Anonymous said...

My guesses are.: 1) A giant knife cutting up a poor sad blue Cthulhu-ish blob with bear ears. 2) A comparison between a foot ball and a very small creature, possibly a guinea pig.

WV. mizeri, The headache I'm getting from trying to figure out what this cake is is giving me so much mizeri.

I've no idea what it's meant to be but wacky backy springs to mind

Good, good...but let's try this, too: how about half the state of Conciousness on crack?

=^e.e^=

sendingtheclowns said...

I feel a sort of heart-tugging urge to go and scoop up the poor little ick-faced thing before it gets euthanised.

>^=.=^<

Diana said...

Its the rowboat from POTC on Stranger Tides and the black squiggles in the water is the mermaid coming to take dear old daddy down into the deep blue sea!!

y'all funny : )

This is an extremely good example of a bad example...

AWESOME! A tip of the hat to you, sendingtheclowns.

Leisha said...

It's clearly a blue Bichon Frise that just got caught chewing dad's steak, hence the foamy substance around the edges....
WV: crespe
Dad likes his steak a little crespe around the edges, not foaming in dog drool.

Anonymous said...

Jen, I'm surprised you didn't realize that this cake was photographed UPSIDE-DOWN. When you turn it right side up, it's obviously the rare Portuguese Mustache Slug, on top of a pedestal engraved with "The Grand Ruler of All Sluggydom" in Mustacheslug-ese.

-zacharyK

wv - ansingly. In ansingly day, the Portuguese Mustache Slug can produce enough mustache wax to fill an average-size refrigerator.

Fluffy Cow said...

So many fails, not enough time.

Surfing the wild guess:
Under his treacherous board,
Dad's sinking visage.

Melanie P said...

It's a cricket bat and the great blue rodent mascot of doom.

Tricia L said...

You know how sometimes you can't figure out what it is suppose to be, and you read all the comments, and it's like "oh, yeah, that's it", and you go back to the picture and blow it up, and immediately recognize what it is? Well, that didn't work. Enlarged, it looks like a football and a blue Lhasa Apso. I'm sure it is the "Big" that is confusing us.

SAVanVleck said...

An airship crashing in the ocean???

sendingtheclowns said...

@ Kati (5:18PM):
Two things:
1.: Thanks (!!) for the hat-tip; did you use your Santa hat? ;)
2.: If you don't mind my asking, what is that adorable creature that you're holding in your photo?
It's very one-of-a-kindish, from what I can see of it.

=^~.~^=

elissa said...

I see a caterpillar next to a mud puddle.

WV: blogiumb. The numbness that sets in after reading too many blogs. "I'd have come up with a better description of that cake, but I'm blogiumb."

elissa said...

I keep looking for the "like" button for comments. I think all the guesses are funnier than the cake, this time. And yeah, I'm with the person who said that even after reading the comments, this cake is still a total mystery.

wv: marru. Isn't that the Japanese cat all over YouTube?

Sharyn said...

@ Fluffy Cow at 5:57

Your WV will live on in ingslamy.

Heidi said...

I keep coming back to stare at this particular disaster, and then to the comments to see if someone has figured it out. It sure isn't going to be me. I keep thinking perhaps the brown part is a beer stein or coffee mug but I am drawing a blank on the Mickey ears with catfish whiskers....

Craig said...

Ok, I'll play -- Dad is an incompetent surfer, who likes to wear mouse ears and who never has to see a dentist because he gets his teeth cleaned by remoras.

What is a 'day Dad' -- a male daycare center operator? That would make the pronoun wrong, but at least it is in keeping with the extraneous quotes and would explain the missing comma.

Anonymous said...

Do the extraneous quotes around "Big" offer a clue? Something is "big" on the cake. Hmmm. A big flea on Blue from Blue's Clues? I can't help thinking that's a "big" football. Do any teams have legless rats as their mascots?

Anonymous said...

A boat and a catfish?

Count Mockula said...

It is either Aretha Franklin's inauguration hat or a snail.

jere7my said...

I'm almost certain the blue log is a mouse; I can't imagine what the black icing would be if not mouse ears and whiskers. Given that and the fluffy white edging on the text, I think the brown lozenge is meant to be a thought bubble. Whoever ordered the cake thought it would be funny or ironic to have the message about their father's "big" day delivered by a (tiny) mouse. There's probably an inside joke in there somewhere.

Anonymous said...

"rare Portuguese Mustache Slug"

now, that's just dang funny!!! :D

banlu said...

There must be some significance to the brown part having grooves on the bottom with a slab of scalloped-edged smooth on top.

Log cabin???

Which means the other thing could possibly be Big Blue from the X-Files.

That would explain how the left side of the white frosting seems to be magically elevating into infinity.

The whole thing is an X-File

boat on water?

Julie B said...

I passed this around, and my 4 year old thinks it is rain. My husband thinks maybe it is a boat (after staring at it for a long time). I kind of wonder if it is supposed to be a wooden sign and then a catfish because of the strange whiskers, but it really looks more like a blue blob with a messy mouse face. I also saw the "dIE" someone referenced in the earlier posts.

Anonymous said...

Maybe it's a shoe? (Dad has been called in to step on the "big" mouse?)

caetb said...

I...... I.... Ouch! Head hurts.......
Mustachioed mouse on a blue Twinkie is all I can come up with.

Aviatrix said...

I see a hamster proudly posing beside a very muddy hot tub.

Melissa Feliciano said...

It's a poorly done JAWS themed cake. The brown area is the boat, and the blue area is the water/shark biting into the boat. The "Big" Day is a reference to the line, "I think we're going to need a bigger boat." Maybe Dad is a fisherman?
