Christ. Another one.

wedding cake topper with groom on the end of a hook
I've said it before (more than once), and I am certain I will say it again, but still: who buys these things?

The only possible use I can see for this is as a cake topper for a bachelorette party or a particularly rowdy bridal shower. You know, the kind of event where misandry is perfectly acceptable.

Dear. God. In. Heaven!

And it takes a lot to make me say that since I'm an atheist.

How tasteless can you get? (points to offending cake topper) This offensive.

Who buys this kind of crap? Probably the same sort of person has the idiot roommate I had a few years ago--she had a book titled "How to train your man like you'd train your dog" or something. What a charmer.

Canaduck said...

Oops.

AS the idiot roommate, not has!

Riona said...

Yikes, Canaduck! Did she use the Training treats for new husbands?

You never know - it might just suit the couple who learn to fly fish while courtin'.

Riona said...

Lowe, you are a very wise woman. Did I mention that you have a great ass? :-)

(Looking around, slowly raising hand)
OK, I'll admit. We had one of these. Well, two, really - however, not on the real live wedding cake. But we had two variants of the bride dragging the groom at our rehearsal night cocktail party. We were also gifted two other toppers of bride/groom of another race. All 4 are on display in our home.

Best part? As we were preparing for the cocktail party, my groom opened the package on one of them,it tumbled out and it broke. Specifically, my head popped off. He was terrified I'd be upset or see it as some sort of "omen" but I couldn't stop laughing. We displayed it anyway (with "my" head stuck back on with red candle wax, because it's what we had).

. . . We also had a friend dress up in a gorilla costume at the wedding reception, another group of friends hired Elvis (we live in Vegas) and another group of friends very nearly hired clowns.

It depends on the spirit in which it's done.

Anonymous, it sounds like a completely fantastic party!

Um, is the hook wedged in his butt crack? That's what it looks like from here. Which would give this piece an very different meaning.

People with a little sense of humor buy those, that's who!

I love these things. I have gotten a couple to put around my cake on the cake table. I am currently looking for the one where the grooms hand is up the back of the brides dress!
The theme for a reception is fun and love. We want to see everyone laughing, joking and dancing. The ceremony is serious (except I am having my minster actually use the "old" words (He asks me if I will "Submit". I am going to get a hoot out of that. I am kinda head strong, so my family is probably ask him to repeat himself. Smile!!!)..
