Surprise Surprise Cupcakes Decorated With Swastikas Aren’t Acceptable For 14 Year Old Jewish Girls Birthday

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. - Sweet treats at a Jewish teen's birthday party in Paradise Valley turned into an offensive message after young party goers decided to decorate their cupcakes with swastika symbols. Pictures of the swastika topping began spreading on social media after the teen's mom posted about what happened on Facebook, writing that she hoped it could be used as a teaching moment for parents. According to the post the girls are all friends and told the Jewish teen's mom they did it to “be funny." The teen's mother also posted that her daughter and the girls at the party had just had a lesson on the holocaust, so she believed they knew very well what the symbol meant.  Carlos Galindo-Elvira, the director of the Anti-Defamation League in Arizona says parents need to teach their children about the meaning symbols tied to acts of hate like the swastika. "When you joke with symbols like the swastika you begin to normalize them and make it very casual within our society,” Galindo Elvira told 12 News. In an update posted online the mother said the girls had apologized and that their parents had spoken with them about the severity of using symbols like the swastika. Galindo-Elvira hopes other parents can use the incident as a chance to do the same.

No bigger social faux pas than ruining a party with racial themed party foods or anything culturally relating to mass genocide. These girls are young so let this be a learning experience.  When you go to someones event in celebration that they lived and grew another year older, another year wiser, It can be a real damper to give her a cupcake with a symbol that marked the murder of probably all ancestors before her grandma and grandpa. Gotta get that lesson out of the way so next time she’s not the one at the Halloween party dressed up as the Twin Towers on fire or dressed up as a Boston Marathon bombing victim. Because believe it or not, we don’t have 14 year olds pulling these moves that probably know is a sure fired way to get backlash and kill the life of the party, but we have somewhat college educated biddies that do that shit too. People that understand social stigmas and some how think its a totally killer idea to pull stunts like this. Crazy I know but it happens.

P.s- for what it’s worth, I still would’ve eaten that cupcake.

German Man Holds The Guinness World Records For Longest Birthday By Flying Through Different Time Zones.

Guinness-No one ever wants their birthday to end, but Sven Hagemeier from Germany managed to keep his special day going for almost two days by crossing between different time zones, this day last year, as he was turning 26 years old.   Over the course of 46 hours, Sven flew from Auckland (New Zealand), to Brisbane (Australia) and then to Honolulu (Hawaii), achieving a record for the Longest birthday ever.   Sven's elongated birthday celebrations beat the previous record set by Nargis Bhimji of Karachi, celebrated her birthday for 35 hours 25min by crossing time zones after flying from Karachi to Singapore and then to San Francisco back in June 1998.   Speaking of his record-breaking birthday celebrations, Sven said, “I have known Guinness World Records since my childhood and I am a huge fan … I always asked myself if it would be possible to set a record myself. After I found the perfect record for me, I felt confident I could become a record holder.”   The birthday-boy spent the majority of two days in an aeroplane enjoying plane food, working out how to stay comfortable on long-haul flights, and communicating using hand-gestures.   In New Zealand, Sven met Khan, a particularly accommodating taxi driver who managed to show him many of Auckland's most interesting places in just an hour and a half. Everyone wanted to get involved in his record attempt and Sven arrived back home feeling happy that, “you will get help, wherever you are in this world.” But Sven’s extended-birthday highlight was landing in Hawaii at midnight, with the knowledge that he had successfully set the record and that his wife was there waiting for him.   Sven described his Guinness World Records certificate as “an incredible present”.   This year, however, Sven plans to celebrate his birthday in a more low-key, traditional manner - at home with just his family - happy 27th birthday Sven!

Im gonna hope Sven only put out this PG version of his 26 birthday so his wife doesnt nag him. I mean first off, wife at 26? Laaaammmmeeeeee. Look flying in planes suck. Its never any fun. You’re in a cramped ass seat, and as of recently theres a strong record of planes fucking up and crashing into the oceans never to be seen again. They’re the worst. So thats how you want to spend your 26th birthday? Do better than that, Sven. You dont get many more of these because soon enough your 30 and have a kid and you just wasted your birthday flying and driving around for an hour at a time. That version of your birthday sounds awful.

My Version of your birthday however could be awesome. Heres what i would do. Unload a couple hundred bucks and each place just get the best hooker you can find. I mean yea that sounds kinda skeezy but kinda awesome too. I mean c’mon. Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand?

Exhibit b.) New ZealandNew-Zealand-Girl-500x333

Exhibit c.) Australia011866-women-surfers 52764910caf3a8437b92377bb0695ee9

Yea, my point exactly. Im gonna assume you took like three grand out at the ATM and just went from airport to hotel room and found a chick to stuff. I mean those are all island surf countries which means there has to be some soul surfer chick available. Lay down the “Hey its my 26th birthday and im trying to set a world record at the same time, wanna be apart of it?” line and you’re bound to get one. One hot one too. So yea Sven im gonna give you the old wink wink nudge nudge, you spent your 26th birthday going 3 of the hottest islands just flying and doing quick tourist stuff and eating shitty airplane food. But deep down in side I hope you were partying with reef girls and saying Mahalo to some Hawaiian chick in a lei.
