Gonna make it to Saturday night!
IT’S NATIONAL FRUITCAKE DAY!
There are a lot of jokes made at the expense of fruitcakes. Let’s just roll through a few:
Where did this running joke even come from? Why don’t people like fruitcake? There’s this amazing article from the Washington Post that talks about fruitcake’s image in the US. The most memorable joke about fruitcake is likely the original: Johnny Carson joked that there really is only one fruitcake and it just keeps getting passed around.
Since then, the fruitcake industry has just been in ruins. Really! It’s fruit in cake! What bad about it?
It’s moist and dense and cherry-y and mmmm. Could eat this all day, people!
Tomorrow is National Chocolate Candy Day.
