Mae Dae! Mae Dae!

A Dae Without Cupcakes  mae

Today is our beloved Mae’s birthdae.  Everybody say Happy Birthdae, Mae!

I’ll wait.

::elevator music::

As you all know, our dear Mae hates many things: Cupcakes, stupid people, and karaoke, just to name a few.  But Mae loves stuff too, and it is the objects of her love as well as the objects of her hate that make Mae one of the most amazing people that we’ve ever had the fortune to call a friend.  If you ever need a person to talk to at 4 in the morning, Mae is there.  If you have a problem, Mae has a solution.  If you need to unlock a door, Mae has the key.  If you need to breakdance, Mae has cardboard.  If you need to fight Rosie O’Donnell in the Applebee’s parking lot, Mae has a brick. If you need someone to have your back, Mae’s behind you. If you need to dispose of a body, Mae has a plan and a car with an unusually large trunk.

In celebration of Mae’s Dae, we at Thundersquee! are placing a moratorium on all things cupcakes.  So yeah, put that cupcake down.  PUT.IT.DOWN.  There will be no cupcake eating todae.  Nae!  Any citizen of the People’s Republic of Thundersquee! found eating a cupcake on this holiest of daes will meet the Hags in the Applebee’s parking lot whereupon his or her face will meet the business end of a Thundersquee! brand brick.  The only exception is a space cupcake: because SPACE CUPCAKES KILL!!!


So, on that note, come take a journey with us as we recount:

20 Things that Mae Loves

1. The Detroit Red Wings

2. Her dogs Max and Angie  (a.k.a. her kryptonite)

3. The Dudes:

i) The Dude (#1) is her father’s dog who likes to gnaw on her toes and underwear, but Mae loves The Dude nonetheless.

ii) The Dude (#2) is El Duderino from The Big Lebowski, which Mae lub lub lubs.

4. Arby’s Big Beef and Cheddar –“Gotta get your hands on one,” Mae often cries.

5. The Detroit Tigers

6. Hammer pants

7. Doing the robot (especially with one arm)

8. PG Tips

9. Better Off Dead

10. True Blood

11. Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush

12. Jet boats (aka-go fast boats.)  One day she will buy a jet boat and name it “Suck My Wake.”

13. Chick Lit (e.g., Bridget Jones’ Diary)

14. Esquire magazine

15. Amelie

16. Trivia

17. Golf (but not putt-putt; Mae hates putt-putt)

18.  Long drives

19.  Word play

20. Stomping cupcakes

BONUS: Lamp. Mae loves Lamp.

So there you have it.  The softer side of Mae.  She’s a great friend, a great person, and we’re  lucky to have met her.  She has gotten us through good times and bad times, and for that we will always buttcone her.

  9. Happy cupcake-and-stoopid-people-free dae! In honor of this occasion, I tried to find Mae trivia, but all I could come up with is this stoopid Month of May trivia page: http://www.richardswebpage.com/index.php?&width=1280&height=1024. Not even one question about golf or Bridget Jones!

  12. Happy Birthday Mae! I know the committe has banned cupcakes in honor of this day. How does the panel feel about doughnuts?

  13. AdAd, “Amigo’s new hope.” He got the pup from Ted Kennedy. That was easy! Oilybohunk, that line is classic! Blam! Doughnuts are a welcome food in Mae World. MmMMm doughnuts.

  16. btw, i hate trivia, but it’s your birthday and my boss happens to love it. So all the bullshit trivia questions he comes in here asking me, just so that I’ll feel inferior, are coming to you Ms. Mae. 🙂

  17. Happy Birthdae Mae!

    The only quote I remember from “Better Off Dead” is this one:

    “Two dollars! I want my two dollars!”

    Oh and in your honoUr, I’m eating enchiladas! I hope you don’t hate those too.

    P.S. Is that cartoon of a space cupcake from Nataliedee.com? And I noticed on Mae’s top ten things she hates post that there’s another cartoon that Natalie Dee’s husband draws. Just askin’, cause I love Natalie Dee’s comics.

  18. The other quote I love from Better Off Dead is “Gee, I’m really sorry your mom blew up Ricky.”

  24. Thank Xenu…I lurve me some doughnuts. I’ve been trying not to eat them but they stare at me when I grab coffee in the morning.

  25. Mae, you should know that they are having a HUGE street festival in honor of your birthday right here in Topeka, KS. Okay…well, it’s really the Fiesta Mexicana that Our Lady of Guadalupe church hosts every year…but they have a jalapeno eating contest and carnival rides and it’s totally rad. Just like you.

    Happy Birthday!

  26. AdAd, I’m going with Times Square. shu_shu, i love all things mexican food. i now love topeka too. also- i would win the jalapeno eating contest hands down. i eat hot peppers like candy. i have a chef friend who gets me bags of peppers that only chefs can get because they’re a health hazard

  27. Sorry I’m late. No, it’s Mall of America with over 40 million visitors a year.

    WTF, right?

    Comment by AdmittedlyAddicted | July 17, 2009 | Reply

  28. AdAd, I’m thinking that the bulk of those visitors are from the local retirement homes to cheer on their champion in the annual mall walking marathon.

    Comment by drgnsldr | July 17, 2009 | Reply

  29. Adad, WOW. Just WOW. That pretty much sums up What’s Wrong with America, now doesn’t it??

    Comment by SeaKat | July 17, 2009 | Reply

  30. If you can get here before tomorrow you can still enjoy the food. Jalapeno eating domination, however, will have to wait for opening night 2010.
