The 71st of the 14,000 Things to be Happy About is "White Cupcakes with Multicolor Sprinkles."  My reaction is as follows.

In front of me rests
a cupcake covered
with gooey white
frosting, and
sprinkled with
red and gold
and pink and
purple little
sugary segments of
tubeworms or
streptococcal bacillae.

I carefully put it back in the basket
and take out a plain doughnut instead.

And that makes me very happy.

ROTFLMAO, a sense of humor is always good, I hope the doughnut was not infected also.

          I strut with a dash
          Of real panache --
I've been compared to the incomparable Ogden Nash!

     Thanks, Elizabeth!
