Good Afternoon! This is Laura Vaughn from The Weekend River in for Nick Jakusz today.
It happened in real life. A woman got a birthday cake for her 2-year-old daughter that said “Happy Birthday Loser” on it.
It was an honest mistake. The young mother was picking up a cake for her daughter’s birthday at Wal-Mart. She hadn’t ordered the cake in advance, so she just took a plain one from the cooler and asked the baker to write “Happy Birthday Lizzard” on the cake. The toddler’s name is Liz and they call her Lizzard as a nickname. Apparently the baker didn’t hear the request properly and wrote “Happy Birthday Loser” on the cake. The young mother hurriedly picked up the cake without looking at it and brought it home.
When she finally took a look, she thought it was so funny that she took a photo of the cake and the toddler and sent it to her husband. She also posted it on facebook, which may have been her biggest mistake, because now everyone is looking at a pouty toddler glaring at a cake which says, “Happy Birthday Loser” on it.
Of course, the 2-year-old can’t read, but when she is old enough, I’m sure that photo will still be somewhere out in the interwebs.
Here’s a link to the story and the photo:
