update on youth vernacular

Every once in a while I like to pass along information that you can really use in your day-to-day life. The following bit of information comes from a high school-teaching friend in Minneapolis.

The Kids call nice butts “cakes” now – as in, “She got cakes!”.

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to use the words “cakes” in a sentence today.

Here’s my contribution: “How sad. That young woman only has one good cake.”

note: Tonight’s post was originally going to be about the new evidence supporting the theory that “Girls Gone Wild” serves a gateway to prostitution, but I just couldn’t find the right words…

    “Looks like someone left their cakes out in the rain.”

    I just looked in the mirror and I’m afraid I might have a case of funnel cakes.

    That poor woman in Kansas whose cakes fused to the toilet seat.

    The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin
    That’s what I said.
    The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
    Or so I have read.
    My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo.
    I love to sink her with my pink torpedo.
    Big bottom
    Big bottom
    Talk about bum cakes,
    My gal’s got ’em.

    Her spindly legs tapered from a less than well apportioned top to a near point at the ankle. A recipe for carrot cake.

    You can’t have your cakes and eat them, too.

    Au contraire, Jill, you most certainly can.

    I’m surprised to find that no one made a cake batter reference. I was hoping for at least one. I also thought that there would be a reference to cakes rising, like, “Those cakes aint the only things risin’.” I’m still very pleased with your work, though.

    I got a discount on tastykakes and also bought some pie.

    The older I get, the more I’ll be trying to get my husband to eat prune cake. But, in a more literary vein…

    Ha. I am relatively young and I have never ever heard that one before.
