They should have called them "boobs in a box", then they could have expanded the line with "ass in a box".

Of course, when they got to "dick in a box" they would have run into trademark problems with Saturday Night Live.

"Cleavage Cupcakes, because all women with low self-esteem know they can turn to food to solve their problems."

(1) The blithe association of a wholesome childhood food with fake cosmetic breast enlargement caused me to suffer an emotional trauma which would not subside until I began taking deep, cleansing breaths while looking at this.

Now I’m well again!!!

(2) Ron . . . click, baby, click!

"Do you have lumpy or uneven cupcakes? Do your cupcakes fail to rise in the oven? Are you sick of the same cupcakes grandma had to deal with? Then try Cleavage Cupcakes!

Warning: Not for eating or trying on."

"Cleavage Cupcakes, because your real breasts are like the bottom of cupcakes, no one wants them."

"Cleavage Cupcakes, just like homemade if your mother was a silicon love-doll."

Try imagining what photo would fit with the title and the Althouse comment.

I'm thinking she visited an erotic bakery.

DOUBLE-CLICK!!!

DOUBLE-CLICK!!!

DOUBLE-CLICK!!!

Flickr seems to have changed the URL on me. I've revised it.

Now, eat your cupcakes...

Is young Ms. McCain a fan?

Nobody offers audible breast enhancements, which is where the action would be.

Visual is pretty much played out.

A natural-sounding gauzy fabric rustle with each step would be a start.

EDH said...

Speaking of pastery, as far as that nude guy in his kitchen, it wasn't so much that he was nude that early morning.

It was the way he carried his coffee, orange juice and donut, all at the same time.

traditionalguy said...

This is another sign of the times. Gel bra inserts are reasonable expenses today while down and out Cosmetic Surgeons are filing for Bankruptcy. The breast enhancement business should qualify for Stimulus Funds to raise the national morale which is really flat now. I suggest that Obama's single payer plan could include them as easily as it now includes abortion on demand and that should win him some male votes for its passage.

If he were a real man, he could have carried a dozen donuts.

Your congress critters at work.

Missed it but will get on a repeat.

Did anyone see PBS Frontline
The Warning with Brooksley Born CFTC Chair under Clinton who in 1996 warned of the approaching derivative crisis but was shut down?

Excerpt:
Greenspan, Rubin and Summers ultimately prevailed on Congress to stop Born and limit future regulation of derivatives. "Born faced a formidable struggle pushing for regulation at a time when the stock market was booming," Kirk says. "Alan Greenspan was the maestro, and both parties in Washington were united in a belief that the markets would take care of themselves."

Now, with many of the same men who shut down Born in key positions in the Obama administration, The Warning reveals the complicated politics that led to this crisis and what it may say about current attempts to prevent the next one.


Congress has available to it quarterly derivative reports published since the mid-1990's that showed exploding amounts of exposure banks were undertaking without anyone properly understanding the nature and complexity of derivatives.

ps....just noticed viewing is available online

Something to fill out today's cup of cake: I have heard that the real reason for the Fox News Network's recent auto de fe was their reporting on a sighting of John Kerry getting off the plane returning from a negotiation meeting among the Russians and Iranians and the Obama Administration on the fate of the new Iranian U-235 Fission Device and Israel's suddenly shortened life expectancy. This cut Hillary and Bill out of the loop in favor of a man Obama and friends trust to carry out their plans. That is is the story that the news media are being warned not to go there about like Fox News dared to. My source for this has the Top American Security Clearance that exists. Something big seems to be brewing for the Holy Land.

dbp said...

What is the point of a "tester" if you can't try them on?

Or maybe the tester is for men to see if the cupcake has the proper hand-feel.

Darcy said...

I wondered that too, dbp. What the heck are you testing with them?

And I'd never heard of this kind of cupcake.

AlphaLiberal said...

Ha ha ha!! Rush Limbaugh and other right wing windbags got taken by a satire post about Barack Obama's thesis.

It's possible they weren't taken in, that knew it was satire and reported it as fact. They are either dumb or mendacious, maybe sloppy. Rush is many things, but not dumb.

Think he will correct the record? Ha!

Hmmmmmm...... funny how Perfessor Althouse chooses to pass on posting about that one. She does not criticize that pill popping, sex tourist leader of the Republican Party.

AlphaLiberal said...

I thought Senator Jon Tester was in town and ordered these in advance for pick up.

LonewackoDotCom said...

In England, a shocking conspiracy has been revealed. What's even more shocking is that only now have people realized it was a deliberate plan. And, here at home, most Americans don't realize that the similar things happening here are also part of a deliberate plan.

That's one of the reasons I oppose these idiots. They either aren't concentrating on that much more important issue or they're on the other side.

traditionalguy said...

Alpha...That faked but true quoting from Obama was obviously faked since we had never heard those deliscious false quotes before...just like the deliscious false quotes about Rush had never been heard before. It was a trick to prove Rush's point that faked attributions are not acceptible tactics no matter what CNN and MSNBC say.They are the latest versions of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion forgeries quoted as real all over the antisemite world.

AlphaLiberal said...

O...... kay.....

Clear as mud, TG.

It's important to the winger to never admit a mistake.

traditionalguy said...

Alpha...That one was on you. It sounds as if we are all too quick to fire at the head fakes these days. That is why we need free speech to sort it all out. You are an Alpha for sure, and a lot of fun.

AlphaLiberal said...

Here is Rush repeating the false and satirical lines on his radio show after he has been informed the story he is broadcasting is false.

"I have had this happen to me," Limbaugh says he doesn't care if thesis quotes are fake, "I know Obama thinks it"

He goes on to admit it may not be accurate and then, instead of apologizing for lying to his listeners, he strikes the victim pose.

Rush Limbaugh has all the values of an addict. What a guy to follow!!

Wacko is just about what you are. This has been a plot of the lefties in Dear Old England for forty years. An MP named Enoch Powell tried to stop it and predicted what would happen. The lefties Alinskyized him, of course, and got their way, but everything he said came true.

The real reason you are afraid of the Tea Partiers (and that's it, you don't "oppose" them) is that they're the true voice of the American people and all that stands between Barry , Pelosi Galore, and the rest of the neo-, crypto-, proto-communists in the Democrat Party from turning this country into the Soviet Union or Cuba (or both).

And they just might win.

So be afraid, Wacky.

Be very, very afraid.

Considering that the idea has been holy writ in the Democrat Party since that unreconstructed Confederate Woody Wilson wrote a couple of books about it, I'd say they were going on a reasonable assumption. Particularly since Barry has been trashing the Constitution since he took the oath to protect and defend it from all enemies, foreign and domestic, in January.

Then again, it might not be a hoax; the little twerp just might have seen the real thing and told the truth.

I applaud these cupcakes. Nothing depresses me more than the thought of silicone implants -- almost every pair of boobs has its unique charm, like snowflakes. Yet I can see why women would like to change their shape on occasion, so why not externally, without the risk of harm?

The lead dog on derivative non-regulation was Phil Gramm, so I don't see the role of the Clintonistas here, by the way.

Ron said...

Is there a one-handed move to get a cupcake outta the cupcake holder?

MamaM said...

Another interesting composition...

--the Box itself a wonder in marketing, complete with clever bow and permanent black marker comments Sharpied atop.
--the offside "Madonna Celebration" flyer with sultry pic.
--shades/sunglasses
--the word "tricks" on the tray behind the box

Juxtaposition, intended or not, often creates a picture with "something more". Similar to the way breast enhancements serve to elevate the real to a whole new level.

LonewackoDotCom said...

Yes, I'm all a-scared of a very small number of Randroid loons who've shown time and time again that they don't have the brainpower for anything beyond cheap stunts and community organizing. They don't represent the thoughts of most Americans and they don't represent mainstream values; if they did, the Libertarian Party would be a powerhouse and Ron Paul would be president. The "partiers" are in part a creation of RonPaul fans and in part a creation of the Kochtopus (search it) and similar groups. Just because they've been able to find a fair number of useful idiots doesn't take away from that.

The reason I discuss them is in large part because I want to discredit their leaders and show how they're incompetent in an attempt to reduce the impact of those leaders on the "ImmigrationDebate". Most of their leaders support MassiveImmigration (example: Dick Armey), and the "partiers" either support that or can't figure out its role in increasing their taxes.

Another problem is that the "partiers" are sucking all the air out of the room, making it difficult to find smart people who want to actually have an impact and do things like "cross-examine" a politician with questions like the one here. The "partiers" just aren't smart enough to do something like that, prefering to go disrupt meetings and wave loopy signs like children. They aren't smart enough to differentiate between their goals and how they achieve their goals; instead of using better techniques - such as "cross-examining" politicians - they've taken to heart the outdated tactics of Alinsky. They're willing to use disreputable tactics, but aren't willing to use honorable and intelligent tactics. They're also the best friends of the Democrats, splitting the GOP into its Randroid vs sane wings.

Alpha said: Limbaugh says he doesn't care if thesis quotes are fake, "I know Obama thinks it"

Alpha--he's joking when he says this. Satire. He's emphasizing the ridiculousness of the people who said the same about him.

Lighten up, cupcake.

Ralph L said...

Gramm was one of a hundred Senators, a body not known for responsible behavior. Rubin was Sec Treasury with Clinton's ear, Greenspan was Fed Chairman and the toast of Washington.

Gramm is also a Gentile.

Cedarford made me say that.

Chip Ahoy said...

I get mixed messages from the writing on that box. They're for testing, but you can't try them on. How can they be tested without trying them on? Imagine those same two messages on the sunglasses.

These confounding messages have caused me to experiment with butternut squash per BJM's plethora as stated down there ↓ at the Dry Leaf Hotel.

Butternut squash soup with leeks and mushrooms.

Risotto with butternut squash and mustard greens.

Butternut squash is not a thing I'm familiar with and I must thank BJM for bringing it to my attention. I'm amazed how sweet it is when roasted. It temporarily got me off my aged balsamic kick before I used it all up and would be forced to go off and buy another bottle. I have tons more ideas for butternut I intend to try, just to see what happens, butternut French fries made the deep-fried way and not the baked way, butternut tempura while I'm on it with the hot oil, Mashed butternut and gravy like potatoes and possibly mixed with them, butternut casserole with wild mushroom and pecans (and possibly spinach or chard), cubed butternut with crunchy oatmeal topping with maple syrup, butternut lasagna, butternut and sweet potato pie, butternut cheesecake. Carved butternut squash like a pumpkin (it already has a built-in mandible, or an oversized brain, the possibilities seem quite good.)

Community organizing is the other side, remember? As for the thoughts of most Americans, how do you explain tens (in some cases, hundreds) of thousands showing up at these events?

The "partiers" are in part a creation of RonPaul fans and in part a creation of the Kochtopus (search it) and similar groups. Just because they've been able to find a fair number of useful idiots doesn't take away from that.

Useful idiots is your side. I don't see a lot of pictures of Ron Paul in the crowds at the events, but I'm sure you see them on your special viewer.

The reason I discuss them is in large part because I want to discredit their leaders and show how they're incompetent in an attempt to reduce the impact of those leaders on the "ImmigrationDebate". Most of their leaders support MassiveImmigration (example: Dick Armey), and the "partiers" either support that or can't figure out its role in increasing their taxes.

Well, that's the Alinsky model, isn't it? Discredit the leaders, personalize, isolate, all the other commie tactics. As for immigration, it's so unreasonable of them to want people who are living off government services (their tax dollars) to at least be here legally.

Another problem is that the "partiers" are sucking all the air out of the room, making it difficult to find smart people who want to actually have an impact and do things like "cross-examine" a politician with questions like the one here. The "partiers" just aren't smart enough to do something like that, prefering to go disrupt meetings and wave loopy signs like children.

They're also the best friends of the Democrats, splitting the GOP into its Randroid vs sane wings.

The "honest and intelligent tactics" used by both Bushes while they were defamed with Alinskite
lies? That's the way the lefties like it; the real Americans try to play by the rules while the Left
practices what they were taught in the Comintern.

And let's talk about the smart people, like the rocket scientists in DC who quadrupled the deficit in nine months or the brain trust in NY who picked Scozzafava. The reason you are scared (and, yes, you are) of the Tea Party movement is that they've taken Alinsky's methods and turned them against the enemies of this country in the best tradition of Robert Rogers.

You're scared because the movement is growing and they are sucking the air out of the debate, because people are listening to them and agreeing.

LonewackoDotCom said...

I don't really have the time to respond to edutcher's latest incoherent ramblings, ramblings that have no clue about my actual position on various matters. However, here's my extensive tea party coverage. That includes, among many other things, calculations showing just how little power the "partiers" actually have.

LonewackoDotCom said...

1. Once again, edutcher appears to have missed the part where the right's "braintrust" - including at least one person at NRO - has encouraged their followers to engage in Alinsky tactics. The major source of that idiocy is Glenn Reynolds, although he's not alone.

2. There is very, very little support for the things that the "party" leaders and many of their supporters want. If there were, the LP would be a major force instead of a joke. The "movement" isn't growing; it will never grow beyond a very small base that represents at the absolute most a couple percent of the U.S. population. And, most of those supporters are already in red areas, meaning the only effect they'll have is on already vulnerable RINOs. They don't have numbers and even more significantly they don't have the brainpower to take on the Dems.

3. The issues they're ignoring are issues that actually have salience to most Americans except for the far-left. Most Americans oppose IllegalImmigration; the "partiers" are in bed with those who support it like Armey. Most Americans oppose far-left social engineering; the "partiers" don't have the intellectual heft to take that on.

The "partiers" are the types who freak out and throw tantrums during a crisis rather than coming up with effective plans. In a movie, they'd be the ones who the audience would cheer when they were eaten by a crocodile.

It's Darwinism in action to see them whine and moan and think they're having an impact at the same time as the Dems deprive them of power.

Gramm was one of a hundred Senators

He was in the right place at the right time. Plus, he was McCain's economics guru -- an anxiety-making prospect to anyone who knew how he pave the way for the derivatives meltdown.

A fun if frightening read:

http://www.texasobserver.org/article.php?aid=2767

In the early evening of Friday, December 15, 2000, with Christmas break only hours away, the U.S. Senate rushed to pass an essential, 11,000-page government reauthorization bill. In what one legal textbook would later call ‘a stunning departure from normal legislative practice,’ the Senate tacked on a complex, 262-page amendment at the urging of Texas Sen. Phil Gramm.

There was little debate on the floor. According to the Congressional Record, Gramm promised that the amendment—also known as the Commodity Futures Modernization Act—along with other landmark legislation he had authored, would usher in a new era for the U.S. financial services industry.

Mrs. Gramm had run the CFTC a decade previous.
