Why I never became a high school athlete



this green salad is cake

your shiny designer gown with the slit down one side is cake

the International Space Station cake covered in buttercream frosting

around the polished table of the G-7 sat one cake next to another

the original copy of the Magna Carta is a rather old cake

when the researchers asked the neural net for a way out of the climate crisis it revealed that it had always been seven layers with a secret filling

that new entertainer you can't stand is an insufferable cake

the last polar bear in the Yukon was cake also

twelve of the thirteen Apostles were scattered the length of the ancient Near East thought they too were cake
