Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I called my local bakery. They refuse to decorate cakes with the following words: c*nt, c*cks*cker, sh*t (and derivatives thereof), f*ck (and derivatives thereof), bollocks (but bullochs is okay), p*nis, t*ts (and derivatives thereof), solypsism, n*gger, and the phrase "weapons of mass destruction are located here".

I think this is all quite understandable, except in the case of solypsism...I believe the problem with that word is that they're not sure what it means, but they're too insecure to admit it. No one objected to putting "William Shatner is Godlike and incredibly sexy!!!" on a cake, because let's face it...he is. This is good news for our upcoming Kirkathon Festival at the WSSBA in beautiful lakeland Orillia, where contestants will strive to win the coveted Hamlet Unleashed Award for doing the most accurate James T. Kirk dramatic impressions. The winner gets a solid gold (well, okay, brass-plated composite resin) tribble that weighs in at 35 pounds and makes a super conversation piece or doorstop.
