betty’s batter better

My contribution to an upcoming dining event is a cake.
I make this really good cake with a boxed cake mix and some pudding. It’s really good. It came out of the oven a few minutes ago and yes, I licked the beaters. I licked the spatula and the bowl.

I think if they made cake batter in a tube this good, I would eat it directly from the tube.

Have you ever noticed that everyone calls that rubber-headed scraper thing a “spatula”? Truthfully, it’s a rubber-scraper. A “spatula” is in fact the flipper-ooni thing you use to turn over hamburgers or eggs. I however, will continue to use the word “spatula” incorrectly until the rest of the world ceases the following:
Prevent-A-tive – It’s really preventive.
Orient-A-ted – It’s really oriented.
Meijer’s – It’s just Meijer.
and the rare, but still completely annoying:

I am willing to kill for less.

maybe it’s just me?

  1. (Obligitory Simpson’s quote) “Spatula City! spatula city. Spatula CITY!”

    The one that really annoys me? “A whole nother”. GRRRRR!

  2. Now, I remember that Home-Ec teacher in junior high was insistent that the rubber scraper thingie really is called a “spatula”, while the flat doobie used for pancake and burger flippin’ is called a “turner”.
    But that was in Indiana, maybe things are different in Michigan.

  3. yeah, but “irregardless” of that, I noticed that you’re making up words too *heh* I personally liked “flipper-ooni” :)

    Oh, and the “Spatula City” quote actually comes from the movie “UHF”, starring Wierd Al Yankovic – along with other classic moments such as “Wheel of Fish”, and getting to drink from the fire hose! A classic and funny movie – well worth watching when you’re in a silly mood at some point :)
