allie brosh god of cake

I, too, was once a God of Cake

Allie Brosh is one of my favorite ambassadors of humanity. She draws and writes about her inner world in a way that is weirdly captivating and get-out-my-head spot on. But I am new to her work, and only after picking up her book did I discover her wildly popular post from 2010, The God of Cake.

If you, too, are a sugar addict…you’re welcome. And I’m sorry. It hits a tender nerve, but I dare you not to pee yourself laughing.
