Cake is a lie.

It is shameful to say that it wasn't until I was in college that I knew what the phrase "You can't have your cake and eat it too," meant.  Mostly, because it was never taught in any class I was in, and the phrasing makes no sense.  I mean, the only way you CAN eat cake is if you have some, right?


I would like to petition that the phrase be changed to "You can't eat your cake and have it too," because then, it would actually say what it means and make sense.

  2. I will totally sign your petition. Oh, and I think the solution here is to perpetually bake cakes so you always have at least one extra cake handy.

  4. I prefer "You can't have two thirds of a cake and eat two thirds of a cake and give away two thirds of a cake to Trick-Or-Treaters unless you have two cakes"
