Spocko Knows Funny

And right now it lives at Cakewrecks.

You would think that me being a Vulcan and all would make me unaware of humor, but that is a rumor spread by Romulans. We know funny. But instead of laughing we say, "Now THAT'S funny."

Professional comedians say, "Now THAT'S funny." It's one of the highest compliments you can get from one. What will make another comedian laugh isn't the same stuff that will make a normal audience laugh. Also, the skill to write something funny is NOT the same as saying something funny, or talking in a funny way or just having excellent timing. I appreciate all these skills. I've never heard Jen speak, but I have read her blog and her comedy writing is what rocks.

Bizarrely, she is in the food blog category of the Weblog Awards instead of the humor category. But I predict after reading her blog you will want to vote for her. So go to and read a bunch of posts, look at some horrible cakes decorated by professionals. If you are like me you will say, "Now THAT'S funny." if you are human or a non-professional comedian you will probably laugh out loud.

I'm going to be focusing on some serious stuff soon and I realize that people REALLY, REALLY don't like to talk about serious stuff. So I appreciate people like Jen making the world a funnier place.

To Jen: Live Long and Prosper
Your fan,

Cracking up over the Kendoll/bearskin rug cakes (uhhh, not that there's anything wrong with that). This is brilliant! Tweeted it, even. Thanks for my first laff of the day, Spocko!

Believe it or not, it was not the men in the office but the women who ordered one of these to celebrate a bridal shower.
