Nurses are sick people, it keeps us sane

Floated to a floor with a nurse who was taking early retirement. Her daughter and a friend made two cakes to say goodbye. I had to take a picture and add an appropriate caption.

Preface: Nurses work with body fluids on a daily basis, and most have a sick sense of humor to go along with this type of work. We do not laugh at patients, but we do laugh at some of the things we have to put up with (OK, we do laugh at some patients), it is a pressure valve for a job most could not do.

Anyway, this is one of the cakes. It is a carrot cake with blue fondant icing in the shape of a bedpan, mango syrup in a colostomy bag, and a Baby Ruth candy bar in mango syrup filling the bedpan. Although tasty many could not eat it after the realism.

Seriously gross....I might could eat it after it's been cut up & unrecognizable :D

I think that it is a little too realistic for me to actually eat it. Still hilarious though.
