A Wednesday Ramblings exclusive

Ok, so if that unmentionable rag of a newspaper can put dead/decapitated bodies on its front page, we can put a picture of the "runny" wedding cake that led to the beating of a bride.

The police now have the cake in custody and it is set to testify in the trial.

Edict of the Week
