That's a pretty good attention to detail. Candles plug into the banana sockets, presume?

We knew you didn't like fondant, so the cake is exactly the right size....

Wow...when a missus goes to that much effort just to make her fella's birthday uber special I'd say she was well worth hanging on to. Impressive.

getting turned on while taking it apart to eat it ... (i hope there's no sick twistel little minds here.)
taking it apart : carving it up in slices so you can eat a slice. and while you are carving it up your are turned on in anticipation. ( what were you thinking ?)

Cake decorating is a nerd-field of its own, and there are many fine pictures of many incredible cakes out there on the internet.  Not to mention http://cakewrecks.com (http://cakewrecks.com)

If that was an actual birthday cake you made or had made for Sagan's (or your) birthday, it moves up a whole bunch of notches in awesomeness compared to just some found picture!

There's no tolerance code.  How do we know it wasn't just 350 posts  ;)

Pretty sure white tolerance means 20%   :)
