Truer words were never spoken than those by Abby Jiminez, owner of Nadia Cakes in two Twin Cities suburbs, who seems as surprised as anyone that there would be a market for a cake depicting a turkey’s butt with a thong surrounded by dollar bills.
“I was kind of surprised at how many people wanted this,” she tells the Star Tribune.
They’ve sold out.
What would inspire such a thing? Let me ruin your Thanksgiving dinner with the answer. This:

Now, if that disgusts you, keep in mind that on your plate tomorrow will be a pile of bread stuffed into and then pulled out of a turkey’s tookus.
So this is hardly the initial salvo in a battle of weird Thanksgiving things.
Jiminez’ initial instinct was that this would be a bad idea, she tells the Strib. But when she saw a photo of it from her cake designer, she posted it on Instagram and people started clamoring for one.
They sold out in a day.
The paper says it was a big hit with corporate events, which tells us it’s business as usual at Twin Cities corporations.
A group of sex workers, however, protested the idea and Jiminez agreed.
Jiminez tells the Star Tribune she’s giving up on the idea of a Christmas version complete with a “tramp stamp.”
