They were just asking for ants. :neutral_face:


Ants you say?

It would have been easier to dismantle had they used chorks.

I vaguely remember having heard this as a child , but I’m so glad to hear it again and truly understand its meaning.

Thank you for a perfect moment of synchronicity and completion of context.


Reminds me of Eddie Izzards Cake or Death bit.


Google translate fail.



To be fair, I think if someone tried this in Austin, those decorations would probably come down pretty fast. Building regs. here are very weird.


I blame Big Pie for the anti-cake regulations.


It seemed like a good idea on paper.


You can’t habitate your cake and eat it too.


Do you want to attract MechaCash, because that’s how you get MechaCash!


Must have been a visiting Taiwanese person if they’re using traditional Chinese script to speak Mandarin.


I still want to know what combo of drugs he was high on when that pic was taken.
