“Fruit and urinal give a bad name to cakes everywhere”

A “urinal cake” is not something that’s eaten, but there are jokes. This was posted on Twitter by Jeannette on January 20, 2011:

“Fruit and urinal give a bad name to cakes everywhere.”

The speaker doesn’t think much of fruitcakes, either. The joke was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on April 25, 2018.

Apparently Ted is performing again and is on Twitter. Here’s one of his tweets:
