What the heck is up with the letters on these pieces of cake? Forget the depressing news story; Leonard and I came up with multiple explanations for the stock photo accompanying it.
Someone ate all the other pieces of cake when the other weren't looking (just look at the hand reaching for the H). I am prone to this sort of thinking because when my older brother turned 11, my younger sister (then two and a half) ate many sugar letters while we weren't looking so that the cake ended up saying HAP DAY SEB instead of HAPPY BIRTHDAY SEBASTIAN.

This reminds of my AA Mile. When Owl tries to spell Happy Birthday Eeyore and it comes out looking something similar to the above.

It's not "grattis på födelsedagen", however. Still more proof that the Beeb doesn't care about accuracy in cake-related stories!
