Candy Cupcakes


Last night I had a dream about John Candy. He was on a late-night infomercial promoting a set of paper cupcake liners. The cupcakes he was making looked absolutely delicious, with frosting and nuts and everything. But then he suddenly choked and/or had a heart attack and died. The show cut to an interview with Candy, where he explained that it had all been a hoax. I'm impressed by my brain's eerie sense of foreshadowing and clever pun with "Candy" selling cupcakes.

I woke up this morning and came across The 7 Greatest Home Shopping Screw Ups of All Time.

Coincidence? Or the psychic ghost of John Candy haunting my dreams?

It's definately Candy's ghost. Quick, let us begin the exorcism! Bring a bucket (for the ectoplasm you're going to spew) and zipstrips for restraint. I'll have you fixed up in no time!

I'm not funny. This is serious business.

That is some sweet (get it? Sweet like cupcakes?) Freudian dreaming, my friend. I remember learning about his theory of how our brains process things on a semantic level but then also in terms of rhymes and puns, which would explain the John Candy-cupcake connection.

Don't know why my comment posted twice. Candy ghosts?

Obviously Candy is a technology-savvy ghost like in Japanese horror movies.

On the up side, I feel more popular now that you've boosted my comment count by 3.

I miss JC. I love watching Uncle Buck over and over just to remind myself how much I heart him.

Sharkboy: Hahah, yeah, I'd feel bad for him if it wasn't completely his own fault.

I like the moth horse guy too. "Wow, that's a big horse!"
