The fuck is up with the sombreros?

Thanks, now I can identify one little bit with the guy.

Fudgie Rules

There may be a bizillion reasons to hate the guy, but Eating a childish treat for a birthday in his 30s actually seems pretty reasonable.

If you persist in hating him for it, please consider placing me on the list as well. I didn’t have any Carvelle ice cream cake product (I don’t really like ice cream cakes), but I do distinctly remember Funfetti frosting on at least one cake in my 30s.

Just who has hated him for it, or anything?

Any chance you’re reading into things, or did I maybe miss something in this post?

Is this family trying to prove that arrested development is a hereditary condition? What was the main course? Mexican-style Kraft Mac N Cheese?

I do have a soft spot for Carvel because of their ads. Who better to hawk delicious ice cream to children than a man who sounds like he subsists on several bottles of Jim Beam and two cartons of Pall Malls every day? Then there was the SNL skit:

Eh, I´m turning 38 this year and I want one of those for my birthday. You don´t get them in Germany tho.

I’m more offput by the sombreros. Fudgie the whale makes him seem like a man of the people. The sombrero just reinforces the oblivious racist moron look.


#11

FACT: Fudgie the Whale is approximately the same shape as the contiguous United States would be after castration.


#12

Overheard at the table: “Grab her by the Cookiepuss”


#13

I want a video of the food preparation in that Mexican restaurant.


#14

They must have run out of the “bag of money” ones.

Though in any other context that would be pretty cool.


#15

It would totally rock if Carvel made that an official offering.


Good old Tom Carvel. “Here’s Cookie Puss. He’s cute.”

I missed out on a chance to get me some Carvel while visiting family in NY last month. OTOH it was cold enough out that we could have bought a Fudgie the Whale cake and left him out on the porch overnight without risk of melting.


#16

Y’all know I love cake, so no hate here for the choice.

But the words “Trump” and ‘cake’ in the same sentence really kinda ruins my appetite.


#17

I suppose it’s better than a whole live lion.


#18

Trumps think that’ll up ratings from Latinos.


#19

Castration only addresses the testicles. So…

I’m talking full Varys here.
