I agree. It’s a damn cupcake. No one takes one bite of a cupcake and then leaves it, unless it’s just horrifically bad. A cupcake practically IS one bite when you love cupcakes, which everyone does.

The cupcake reminds me of something my old roommate did once, which I failed to document:
After someone left a large quantity of crumbs on the kitchen counter for a day or so, she left a post-it note that read, “why” next to the crumbs… having shaped said crumbs into a question mark.

I am the same Sean who left the note, though, honestly. Don’t make me prove it by doing the line! Peter is my brother and had the bad habit of leaving inexplicable messes everywhere – jam upside-down, enormous balls of wadded, chewed, sloppy gum left on wooden surfaces, miscellaneous goo on the carpet, tea bags in the sink…
I just started to wonder. But it’s great having him around. He made our house a (group) home.

Take it from me:
It’s best to emote
not with your mouth

So I sucked in my anger
And then I got started
I pressed the pen hard

As the doctor walked in she noticed the binder full of pamphlets and her heart sank. Doctor’s don’t hand you pamphlets if everything is OK. They don’t bite their lower lips if there’s nothing wrong with your child.
“Is it a birth defect,” She asked desperately as the Doctor sat down.
He smiled and said, “No, Ma’am. Peter’s not suffering from any sort of birth defect or brain damage. In fact, Peter’s a bright child with a healthy and active imagination and above average cognitive skills.”
“So what’s wrong with him? Is he crazy?”
“No, not at all, ” the doctor said in that calming manner doctors learn in their final year of med school. “Peter suffers from a rare form of dyslexia. Object-oriented spatial dyslexia, to be precise.”
She stared on.
The doctor nodded. ” You see, Peter has trouble recognizing where things are supposed to go, so when he’s trying to make toast sometimes his brain connects to putting a tape in the VCR. Or he’ll pour milk directly into the box of cereal. Most commonly he’ll simply set things upside down.”
“So what can I do?”
“These pamphlets will provide you with some helpful ideas as to how to help Peter to look at things in a way that will help him minimize the effects of his disorder. ”
As they drove home Peter sat quietly, nervously. His mother could only smile. Finally he looked over at her and asked, “Am I retarded, Mom?”
She looked back at him and felt the full force of her love. “No honey. You’re not retarded. You’re Spatial.”

Was it a third party? Perhaps, someone who thinks Sean and Peter are retarded.
With three possibilities upon the table, Sean has a 66% chance of being retarded, and Peter a confirmed retard.

Plastic forks present a number of serious problems. They aren’t exactly “green” are they? Sure, you don’t have to wash them…unless you’re on a fixed income…but they’re a petroleum-based commodity. Why don’t you just send OPEC a personal check?
And who uses utensils on cupcakes anyway? The whole point of a cupcake is that it can be eaten without utensils. Marie Antoinette made that mistake when she gave the peasants regular cake and forks to eat it with. If she’d have had the presence of mind to provide those angry peasants with cupcakes or petit fours the people would have remained unarmed and ill-equipped to storm the palace.

He ended up jumping in the fountain in the middle of campus to hide, but, by then, all the cheese and salami was waterlogged and inedible.

Another example of what differentiates PA people from the rest of the bunch-
Normal people would clear that mess and then bitch about it to whoever did it.
PA people first bitch about it with a note, but won’t clear it up themselves.
And there are those who would clean up before (or after) and leave a PA note.
