News, but not the serious kind
Honey, will you marry… Ewwwww!
So now they’re selling a diamond and gold-leaf “carat cake” as a $2,500 gift for guys to give when they propose marriage. I see disaster ahead.
“Honey, we’ve been dating for two years, and I have something to ask you…
“Here, have some of this very special cake while I’m talking. Go ahead, dig in.
“You know, I love you deeply, and I want… Ooooh, I guess your tooth fillings are reacting to those gold leaves, like chewing on a piece of Reynolds Wrap. Sorry.
“Anyway, we’re so happy, and… Sweetie, your gums are bleeding. See, those things are real diamonds, not Jujubes. Looks like you’ve cracked your front tooth…
“I didn’t think you’d cram all that gold in your mouth. You look like a fricking Colombian drug lord!
“You know, when you chew with your mouth open like that, the blood just sprays out. The diamonds must have cut a mouth artery or something… What was I saying? Never mind. It wasn’t important…”
