Sugar Mouse Cake.

“When morning came, Tom’s cake was decorated from top to bottom with white sugar mice. They had pink sugar eyes and pink sugar noses and all of them looked as real as could be. Some were musicians and others were dancers and high in the middle, on two little thrones, sat a sugar mouse King and a sugar mouse Queen.” – from The Sugar Mouse Cake by Gene Zion

We know our letters just fine, and we know our numbers to a certain point, but books were always the realm of four-eyed poindexters with bowler hats and cravats. That’s why it pleases us so that America’s proud illiterates are finally stepping up and pushing back against the crushing tide of education that threatens to swallow us all into its gaping maw of checked facts. Champions of the Ignorantiat will not like it here.
