I had a birthday a while back. Adam and Amanda got me a birthday cake(s). A whole bunch of cupcakes arranged and decorated to form a duck pond with some ornamental plastic ducks.
I sometimes think about taking a duck to a pawn shop to see what they'd give me for a duck. If they actually gave me something for the duck, I'd have a duck pawned. I had a cupcake; now I have a virtual cake ... see you, personal computer cake - cu pc cake!
