November 15, 2006: Giant clock of sweets



Neatorama finds this very massive 'cake clock' on this Chinese news site.

Cake clock. Do not say that 5 times fast.

Again we need to appeal to our resident translators for more detail on the Chinese page. Babelfish attempted but failed with an error!

I can't resist posting massive food items.

I'm waiting for the Oompa Roompas to come out and sing.

Why?

cake clock
cock clock
clock cock
clit clock
fuck it

See? that's not so hard.



barefoot serpent  Wednesday Nov 15 12:09 PM

at least it has the correct time -- twice a day.



Flint  Wednesday Nov 15 12:11 PM

I'll bet it has a clock motor in it, unless 2:22 has some special meaning...

I had to think about that for a second. Then an inappropriate sound I can only class as a guffaw burst from me!

Nutrition Institue ???



wolf  Wednesday Nov 15 12:49 PM

It's cool, but it really just looks like a pile of cupcakes and other baked goods on shelves. I want to see something worthy of one of the Food Network Challenge Shows ... a working clock built out of confectionary materials.

(Okay, I really only watch the Food Network Challenge to see the hopes of the contestants dashed to as many pieces as their sugar sculptures when the design concept turns out to be completely unfeasible because of weight vs. fragility.)

Does that mean the lollipops are now clock suckers?

nice use of punnage. I don't usually compliment things like this, but oh, that was goooood.

Asian equivalent of 4:20?

My pancreas hurts just looking at it. whimper



Trilby  Wednesday Nov 15 03:04 PM

Well, now, obviously the gauntlet has been thrown down! American's need to rectify this wrong. If there's gonna be a giant cake clock, we should be the ones to make the biggest giant cake clock, because....because...we just do stuff like that.



Sundae  Wednesday Nov 15 03:16 PM

Make it a pizza one - it'll look better I promise

Next to a beer fountain....
By the big fried chicken mountain

Pie  Wednesday Nov 15 05:21 PM

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, there's a land that's fair and bright,
The handouts grow on bushes and you sleep out every night
Where the boxcars all are empty and the sun shines every day
On the birds and the bees and the cigarete trees,
The lemonade springs where the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, all the cops have wooden legs
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay soft-boiled eggs
The farmer's trees are full of fruit and the barns are full of hay
Oh I'm bound to go where there ain't no snow
Where the rain don't fall, the wind don't blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, you never change your socks
And little streams of alcohol come a-trickling down the rocks
The brakemen have to tip their hats and the railroad bulls are blind
There's a lake of stew and of whiskey too
And you can paddle all around 'em in a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains the jails are made of tin,
And you can walk right out again as soon as you are in
There ain't no short-handled shovels, no axes, saws or picks,
I'm a-goin' to stay where you sleep all day
Where they hung the jerk that invented work
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

I'll see you all this comin' fall in the Big Rock Candy Mountains!

Headline goes: 400 Japanese students create a huge cake-clock

Caption: 10th November, Japanese students in Osaka seeing the cake-clock exhibition.

Text: 2 meters tall, 2.7 meters wide, 800 kg and is a creation of 400 students in a Japanese nutrition school.



lumberjim  Wednesday Nov 15 06:29 PM

Pie, I've heard that song. recently......was it in a movie? is it Bob Dylan?



Trilby  Wednesday Nov 15 08:03 PM

The song was in Oh Brother, Where Art Thou....have you seen that one lately?



ashke  Wednesday Nov 15 08:20 PM

Great soundtrack on that one. =)



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Nov 15 08:25 PM

So many people were blown away by the music, they put a troop together and did a national concert tour.



SPUCK  Thursday Nov 16 07:05 AM

Ah come on.. gauntlet smontlet we paid for that cake. Just the slight scrapings of the billions $$$ we pump over there.. Nike sweat shops, etc.

Errrrr, you realise it's a Japanese cake, right?

We learned Big Rock Candy Mountain at school (some words were changed I think, but essentially the same).

It's only as I get older that I bless my education. We used to have singing sessions where we learned songs from around the world - folk songs, spirituals etc. I know people now who don't even know the words to our own national anthem - and aren't ashamed of that!


wolf  Thursday Nov 16 12:46 PM

At least yours has a tune people can sing on key with little musical talent. "My Country 'Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty, of Thee I sing." (yes, I know what I just did, intentional dig from the brash Colonial) ... vs. our own English Drinking Song that a roaring drunk couldn't sing on a bet.

Do you have to sing God Save the Queen before every sporting event? That's how a lot of Americans learn and remember the words to ours.



Lunaephiliac  Thursday Nov 16 03:00 PM

of course I know the words to the national anthem!

My country hates me
I'll go to Germany
Und be a shpy
I'll eat die sauerkraut
Undtill mine eyes pop out
Und den I will shout
"hotsi, totsie! I'm a nazi!"

True - I know I couldn't sing along to the Star Spangled Banner because of the range needed (though the words are great - very stirring).

We only sing the national anthem before international games - and people who attend them regularly are far more likely to know the words. I think everyone should know the words - to that and Rule Britannia, Land of Hope & Glory and Jerusalem!

Then again I learned poems off by heart at school too and am amazed that some people (educated at the same time just in different schoools) don't know where the most basic quotes come from. I didn't realise how lucky I was....

I run into that all the time. I learned great chunks of Shakespeare and can still recite with only minor prompts.

At least in the U.S., most schools are supposed to teach the same stuff, it's just a matter of whether or not the kids pay attention ... or at least it used to be. Our educational system has gotten so dumbed down to the lowest common denominator that I'm surprised people can still tie their own shoes.

But I'll bet they'd learn how to tell time more quickly if WE required making clock cakes!!!

I keep reading this thread as "Giant glock of sweets" which has a whole different atmosphere to it.

HELL NO I didn't realise or I won't have made that crack. tehehe

Oh and thanks ashke for the translation..

Made at a nutrition school huh?


ashke  Tuesday Nov 21 09:32 AM

I suppose those students graduate to become certified nutritionists or something...



CaliforniaMama  Tuesday Nov 21 08:52 PM

"Dad is great! He gave us chocolate cake!"

Why not cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner? It has all the main food groups: flour, eggs, dairy, chocolate . . .
