Rotten Cheesecake?!

Big Sprout came home from school today upset because one of the boys on the bus told her she smells like (you guessed it) rotten cheesecake.

What is wrong with this kids parents that they let a cheesecake rot?!? I mean, really. I have way more respect for that most awesome of all desserts. You eat it all in one sitting and then groan for a few hours. You don't let it sit out, alone and forgotten, on the counter until penicillin grows on it!

You see, that's what is wrong with parents these days. They are not being proper examples for their children. Next thing you know, we will have a whole generation of people wandering around that think pudding pops qualify as a dessert. Not that I have anything against pudding pops, you understand, but we are talking about quality here, people! A good piece of cheesecake qualifies as a work of art! The creamy texture, the exact placement of fruit topping to maximize the artful drip effect, the sweet-tang flavor balanced with the perfect fruit topping.

I think I will have to write a letter to the editor, because this is just WRONG.

ROFL Oh, I DO love (and agree) how incensed you are over the thought of a piece of perfectly delicious cheesecake going bad.

Glad I'm not the only one. What do you say, should we track down this mommy and steal all her cheesecake? Party at my place after. Airfare from your place to here can't be too bad...
