Over the years, I've noticed some of you don't "get" sarcasm. Which I totally understand! I mean, sarcasm is super hard. Really.
So. Let me help. Because I care. I really, really care.

This says, "Common law still counts, right?"
Maybe your husband hasn't changed a diaper in 6 weeks because he's off playing Call of Duty. Again.
Passive aggression is soooo much better than attacking the Xbox with a weed wacker. Am I right?
Or maybe you just really, really don't like Kate.

Thanks to Sara R., Erin C., Anony M., Laura E., Daniel A., Louise P., & Chris M. for these great cakes. No really. I mean it. You're all my heroes.
P.S. I know a lot of you are working and/or schooling at home this year, so why not take full advantage while decorating your workspace?
