It’s a public safety issue. Officials are trying to avoid attracting Kaiju.

someone left the cake out in the rain.


#4

“Where do you think you are? Japan?”


#5

Oh no!


#6

They were just asking for ants. :neutral_face:


#7

Ants you say?

Yes i can see how that would be an issue.


#8

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


#9

“MmmRAWK!” Loosely translated, this means"The cake is a lie!"

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.


#12

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.


#15

I blame Big Pie for the anti-cake regulations.


#16

It seemed like a good idea on paper.


#17

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


#18

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.
