Most people believe Summa Cum Laude is an honor ... Publix grocery store believes it's obscene.
Case in point ... this cake.
A woman in South Carolina ordered the tasty treat online to celebrate her son graduating from his homeschool program with a 4.79 GPA ... earning Summa Cum Laude honors.
But, when she sent a friend to pick up the cake, the word "Cum" was edited out -- an apparent violation of the grocery store's obscenity policy!!!!
"My son was humiliated," the woman posted on her Facebook page ... "I seriously couldn't make this crap up!!!"
"How utterly ridiculous and I will be speaking to a manager for a refund. Shame on you Publix for turning an innocent Latin phrase into a total embarrassment for having to explain to my son and others (including my 70 year old mother) about this joke of a cake."
FYI, "Summa Cum Laude" is a Latin phrase that means "with highest honor."
Just make sure your safe search is on if you put it in Google ...
There’s a reason that employee decorates cakes, and isn’t working on orbital mechanics...
Publix is being niggardly with their frosting.
I wouldnt want any on my Publix cake, either.
Attitude is everything . . . I think that’s pretty funny. There are several excellent websites for cake disasters, and this would fit in perfectly.
“Theres a reason that employee decorates cakes, and isnt working on orbital mechanics”
GREAT POST. You made it simple for all to understand.
Some years back we smoked a Mars probe due to errors in converting metrics to English measures. Perhaps the cake decorator did do orbital mechanics for NASA. :)
Good thing it was not a homo bakery..........
I remember that probe crash quite well.
Looks like they blew too much of a load of blue when writing Summa.
There was already a thread on this without the horribly offensive title. Scrap this thread.
I wouldn’t want someone putting cum on my cake....
Comments section had to make sure they got a dig in for home schooling.
and not Bill Clinton’s birthday
Didn’t know cursive.
Exactly. They were getting rid of Latin in schools when I was in high school. They said it was a dead, useless language. Little did they know that it would be necessary for cake decorators to avoid silly nonsense like this.
Doesn’t Monica Lewinsky own that word now?
‘Don’t hurt it. Just get it out a’ here.’
Bad middle name to have. Or maybe good. I dont know.
I would have walked out after telling them they have limited horizons.
