The famous Marie Antoinette quote, "Let them eat cake" is widely misunderstood.
"Cake", in this instance, actually refers to the burned, black film that lines the inside of a frequently used bread oven... all that burned stuff that's 'caked' on the inside of the oven and needs to be scraped out from time to time. Supposedly it's edible, but would you want to eat bread crumbs that are burned totally black and that have been burning in an old brick bread oven for weeks?
That's the proverbial 'cake', not a nice "Black Forest Chocolate Cake" that comes to the modern mind.
Benghazi could put Hillary on top though...
Never put it past the Clintons... they hate Obama more than you or I.
Thank you, I was aware . . . “I like cake” is an internet meme that basically says, “ok, whatever.”
First, Marie Antoinette never said “Let them eat cake”
Second, “in the original French the alleged quote reads, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche,” which means, literally, “Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.”http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/dubiousquotes/a/antoinette.htm
