I’m a bad person.
When I see someone carrying recently made food I always visualise them dropping it. It’s just part of the human condition that other peoples failures are funny and there is nothing more spectacular than the cake drop.
The room fills with the aroma of freshly risen sponge.
The icing drips down the side.
And then it happens.
the shoe laces tangle.
The knees buckle.
And it goes flying through the air like a sweet vanilla projectile
The picture shows a typical incident. Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” can be seen. It is thought that the inspiration for the painting came from a similar incident that Munch experienced at his 5th birthday party.
People love schadenfreude, it goes all the way back to the earliest forms of comedy. English comedy is filled with slapstick.
Munch never truly recovered from the incident but he still managed to save some cake.

I am a bad person too! I will laugh when people trip up (mainly because it is not me for once). If they are carrying cake then so much the better, I will laugh louder!
That explains the face from “The Scream” I never considered the possibility that this face resulted from a bad Betty Crocker experience. Art you are a gem.

I laughed when my toddler fell in a puddle today. I feel better knowing that it wouldn’t have only been me.
Brilliant !! That was perplexing and pleasantly funny
This is great! After all, there is no one way to look at art. I appreciate the humor and you are not alone in thinking it is funny when someone trips.
This is simply awesome!
