A school student located in Davis, California has claimed that sometime around two weeks ago, she and a friend gave nine of their fellow classmates some cookies that contained her grandfathers ashes.
Some of the students were aware of what they were eating, whereas others were not aware and were “horrified” when they found out what was inside their baked dessert.
It is unclear why the student felt the desire to bring desserts with human remains inside of them to share at the school. Since the cookies were all consumed, it’s impossible to tell if they contained ashes at all. However, a classmate of the accused did say that he “didn’t believe the story until the student pulled out the urn containing the ashes.”
A South Carolina woman isn’t happy a grocery store censored her honor graduate son’s cake, which was supposed to include the Latin phrase “Summa Cum Laude.”
Cara Koscinski told The Washington Post a cake online from Publix that was supposed to say “Congrats Jacob! Summa Cum Laude Class of 2018.”
She says the online message box did not like the word “cum,” the Latin word for “with.” The computer marked it as a naughty word and substituted three hyphens in its place.
Koscinski said she then filled in a box for special instructions, explaining the Latin word and placed the $70 order. Another family member picked up the cake, not knowing what it was supposed to say. It came with the hyphens.
She says the store gave her a refund and a gift card when she complained.
