There’s really no reasonable way to enter into this topic, so I’ll just say it: Twitter is being overrun by cakes in disguise and nobody is OK.
Why did this happen? How? That’s for future historians to unravel.

Beware ye who scroll past here, you’re about to question everything.

It’s been a confusing year, but at least this is the kind of confusion that’s delightful and funny and not just straight up horrifying. We need more of that.
