Who Wants to See a Were-Platypus Cupcake?

I do! I do!

Okay, I am SOOOO going to get in trouble for this...but I just can't help myself.

Not sure how many of you follow the fabulous C.J. Redwine, but she has a little poll going on at her blog that I want you guys to help me with.

See, she made the mistake of letting her followers suggest cupcake designs (classic mistake, I mean really, WHAT was she thinking?) and of course she got some rather interesting suggestions--some of which came from me (somehow I don't think you guys are surprised by that)

To be fair, all I suggested was 'platypus,' because I personally feel that the platypus is a highly under appreciated mammal--especially in baked goods. I mean, have any of you ever seen a platypus cake? I think not. So I thought it was high time we did!

And because I'm not her only evil follower, someone decided that it needed to be a Were-Platypus (which is AWESOME!) and C.J. foolishly decided to include it in her poll, thinking it would be a joke.
(Poor girl, will she never learn?)

Naturally it's winning by a landslide!

So of course C.J. is trying to rally with blog posts and Twitter campaigns and all kinds of other shenanigans to stall the Were-Platypus vote.

And that's just cheating! So I'm running a counter campaign (and praying that this won't turn into another blog war. C.J. would destroy me. She has a Spork of Doom and she's NOT afraid to use it.)

So please, if you love me at all--or just like me a little--or just want to see what a Were Platypus cupcake would look like, hop on over to C.J.'s blog and vote for Wally.

Yes, he has a name.

In fact, C.J. gave him a whole profile
(somehow she thought this would make him less popular, silly girl)

Name: Wally the Were-Platypus
Occupation: Fighting underwater crime
Hobbies: Eating sushi, listening to show tunes, and polishing his bill
Special Attributes: He can turn into a duck-billed, web-footed platypus at the drop of a hat. Or when he wants to show off for the women's' swim team.

Come on people, let's make this happen!
Wally the Were-Platypus FTW!!!!!!

  4. LOL - You have my vote girl! Okay, I'm totally dating myself here, but I remember these commercials with Wildlife cards (you know like garbage pail kids, or baseball), some wildlife collection... I remember the annoying little kid saying the Platypus was part of his wildlife collection... I'm crazy, but I remember that...

    LOL That's the extent of my knowledge about this creature. However, I would love to see him on a cupcake - Yum :o)

  5. That picture is so cute! I'd almost feel bad eating him....almost.

  8. I follow CJ, and I voted for Wally the second I saw that "Were-Platypus" was even an OPTION. *falls over laughing*
