Pornosophy: A Baker Whose Behavior Takes the Cake

The headline read "Colorado Court Rules Against Baker Who Refused to Serve Same-Sex Couples," (NYT, 8/13/15) According to the Times, the case revolved around the idea that "a baker could not cite religious beliefs in refusing to make wedding cakes for same sex-couples." The case itself opens many esoteric questions both about law and baking. For instance, how would the same baker have felt about tarts? And would he have been further motivated if the potential tart eaters who might also be same-sex couples swore under oath that they had no intention of getting married, but were simply having a good time? If you Google Erotic Bakery, NYC, www.cakes3.com you will come to a baker who advertises "penis cakes, vagina cakes and more." But even though the Colorado case may have opened up some doors, same-sex couples might be a little trigger shy. What if you decide you want a good old fashioned chocolate layer penis cake with the inscription "Bob and Tom, to Honor and Obey." Is it possible that your local erotic baker is a fundamentalist Christian and that you will have to file a legal suit to get your cake delivered on time for the festivity? Remember those delicious vagina cakes grandma used to make? What if Virginia and Alice order one with a banana cream topping and the inscription "till death do you part." Will they need to get a court order to release their cake, if your baker is a member of some religious order that disapproves of same sex marriage? If you get the court order and the inscription has dripped all over the place and is practically indecipherable by the time, it finally arrives, do you have a right to sue or the very least to get a refund? Yes the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, but there is always going to be a baker, butcher or candlestick maker, whose behavior takes the cake.erotic cake from Isabella's Creations{This was originally posted to The Screaming Pope, Francis Levy's blog of rants and reactions to contemporary politics, art and culture} — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Even Gorillas Are Glued To Smartphones These Days

If you're having trouble tearing your kid away from his iPhone, just be thankful he's not a 400-pound ape.Footage taken at Kentucky’s Louisville Zoo shows Jelani, a young male silverback gorilla, seemingly enthralled by a zoo visitor’s smartphone, nodding as the boy shows him each new image. Apparently, Jelani is known for his interest in technology — his biography on the zoo’s website says “he is a laid-back individual and likes to look at cellphone photos and videos."Since video editor Paul Ross uploaded the footage to YouTube earlier this month, the Internet has become as glued to the video as Jelani is to his visitor’s photographs.But some viewers see the video as bittersweet, since Jelani is, after all, in captivity and not out in the wild. Ross addressed this point in an updated description of his YouTube video:Please note that this gorilla (I believe he is named Jelani) is housed in an award winning 4 acre gorilla sanctuary in the Louisville Zoo. He is a Western Lowland Gorilla, a species classified as "critically endangered" by the I.U.C.N.The Louisville Zoo works hard to provide Jelani and his group with great nutrition, a stimulating and wide open environment, medicine and a chance and hopefully through awareness and captive breeding they'll help move this beautiful species off that endangered list.Ross recommends that anyone who feels moved by the video should learn more about the zoo's gorilla sanctuary and find out what they can do to help the great apes.Contact the author of this article at Hilary.Hanson@huffingtonpost.com. — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Pumpkin Spice Is Dead, Long Live Salted Caramel

Pumpkin spice is over, dead. If you are still doing whatever one does with pumpkin spice (eating? drinking? snorting with $100 bills?), you are like that guy who is so stoked about the U2 concert he saw last night. You might as well catch the next plane to Pyongyang, because you and the tyrannical dictator Kim Jong Un are the very last people on the planet who think pumpkin spice is awesome.Everyone else, everyone else who matters, is totally into salted caramel. Which, unlike the garbage spice pumpkin spice, is enjoyed throughout the year — and isn't just a lame marketing gimmick trotted out to appeal to Thanksgiving shoppers and people who smoke a ton of weed. That is, at least, the gist of an unsolicited email I received this afternoon. According to new data from the self-described "experts" at health-tracker app MyFitnessPal, the trend of pumpkin spice "MIGHT BE FIZZLING OUT" (emphasis added). Last year, according to these experts, humans consumed 7.3 percent less pumpkin spice-flavored items than the year before. Meanwhile, salted caramel as a thing is "booming," having enjoyed a 7 percent spike since the beginning of 2014. Totally incidentally, I cashed out my 401(k) and bought 40,000 gallons of salted caramel flavoring that I'm looking to sell at a totally reasonable price. — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
