let’s eat cake like it’s 1969.

cake

We all have our favorite desserts.  Perhaps yours is the pumpkin pie your grandmother used to make at Thanksgiving, the cookies they used to have in your high school’s cafeteria, or just straight up Ben and Jerry’s.

Colonel Henry Moak LOVED the pound cake the Army rationed out during the Vietnam War.  After forty years of service to our country, Col. Moak is retiring and he wants pound cake at his celebration, which is being held today at the Pentagon.  To be specific, he wants Army C-ration pound cake.  Even more exact, he wants the one from one of his old ration kits he saved.  He’s planning to eat the old pound cake today… if he still can.

I am dying to know what happens.  Regardless, I know I’ll be a tad bit grossed out.  The thought of moldy pound cake is nasty, but then again so is the thought of perfectly intact cake 40 years later. Eek!

But let him eat cake.  And for his sake, I hope it’s still good.  He’s definitely earned it.
