This Bobby Cocks Cake Wreck Will Make You Snicker, Giggle

Longtime Atlanta manager Bobby Cox was honored on Capitol Hill yesterday prior to his Braves getting whomped by Livan Hernandez and the Nats; some Congressional staffer thought it would be funny to "accidentally" misspell his last name on the celebratory cake. The offices of Senator Johnny Isakson (R, Ga) are trying to blame the bakery but c'mon, the 11-year-old boy inside of me doesn't believe it. Also, he's thirsty and wants water.

Watson said she informed a Braves spokesperson of what happened. She wasn't sure if Cox ever was told.

And what happened to those pieces of cake that were cut out?

"We smeared the icing so you couldn't make out what it said," she said.

I keep my 11-year old boy in my trunk

That's nothing, when Bobby Valentine was welcomed as manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines, the cake said "Welcome to Chiba Lotte, Bobby Vajayjay - May your box smell as fresh as our fisheries!" Which they tried to pass off as a translation error, but I dunno, I heard they hired Steve Phillips to GM the whole welcoming ceremony.

Isaakson is as good at ordering cakes as he is at being a Senator

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

"Great."

I emailed this pic to my family. (all Braves fans) Then I realized I just email my mom a dick joke. Damn you Bob Cox.

"Tony La Penises" just doesn't have the same ring.
