Germophobe's Birthday Cake Candelabra

Spread the good cheer--not the rhinovirus

Would you eat your dinner if someone huffed and puffed on it first at close range? Let's hope not. But when your friend blows out the candles on his birthday cake and offers you a slice, it's the same thing. It could be topped with buttercream, sprinkles--and bird flu, for all anyone knows.

That's where the Germophobe Birthday Cake Canedlabra comes in. Just place birthday candles in the candelabra and light them. Sing yourselves hoarse. Then remove the candelabra, and hand it to your friend to blow the candles out, while facing away from the cake (and from me, thank you).

A goody bag is all you should bring home from the party!

       So don't eat the icing, sheesh!

       Don't eat the yellow icing?

       I dunno about not eating the icing... sometimes it can be just so light and fluffy...

       I fail to see how taking home a "goody bag" is better than taking home a pet virus. [+]

       Assuming your friend isn't blowing spittle onto the cake, what difference is there between eating a slice of the cake and sitting in the same room as your friend? Do you honestly believe that every breath of air you take is a sweet, virgin, never before inhaled paradigm of purity?

       Every breath you take   

       And every cake you bake   

       Every flame you blow, every germ you make   

       I’ll be watching you

       I prepared the cake in my shower. I baked it as I bathed.

       Makes my sore throat ache"

       Reminds me of that calculation that every breath you take likely contains something like 1000 molecules that were sometime in the past exhaled by Leonardo da Vinci....

       Oh, and I assume that when you hand your friend the candelabra, you are wearing gloves, n'est-ce pas?
