Funny Cake Saying - Difficulty Level - Stroke
May 23, 2019 3:12 PM   Subscribe

We're having a "Screw you stroke, I'm still kicking" party for a dear friend who suffered a massive stroke last year. We want to put something funny on her cake - I am all tapped out. Give me your best stroke humor!

Friend has a rather black sense of humor. Our group chat for party planning is called "I survived a massive stroke and all I got was this crappy hand tremor" if that helps give a tone to the event.

It's a very much fuck you, irreverent kind of tone. I got her several adult coloring books with many curse words to help with her fine motor skills .

What funny stroke related saying can we put on her cake?

What do we say to strokes?

Either a scull boat (get it?) or a kitty. Or both of those. Things one strokes, when one is the agent rather than the victim of said activity.

Other stroke things: grandfather clock; pen; lightning.

I mean, "Different strokes for different folks" is pretty obvious. You've done that already, right?

For people of the age to have experienced early MTV, get a photo cake of this.

Best answer: “Thank god the only thing slurring your speech today is booze.”

I'm personally a fan of "Not Today, Satan," but maybe ask her? My dark sense of humor about my brain injury is a personal thing, so maybe don't guess what works for her - some of these suggestions might not land right, so it may be best to make sure in advance.

with the hand tremor aspect would it be appropriate to have whatever winds up on the cake done in really shaky hand writing? something like this?

If she has a hand tremor, how about "Shakin' Not Stirred"?

Zombie humor for re-animated braaaaaaaains?

One stroke over par.
When I heard about your stroke, I nearly burst a vessel.
No, anYOURysm!

Good on your friend, sounds like they've got a good attitude for recovery.

Maybe recreate the album art for The Strokes’ album Is This It but retitle it somehow. (This Is Shit?)

These are awesome.

I had a meeting about raising money for stroke research yesterday and someone randomly said "I love stroke!" and it made everyone laugh for a loooong time.

Or, just put a picture of some rowers on it. STROKE! STROKE! STROKE!

I feel like a bad person suggesting this, but you could have an ecstatically smiley face under the banner "HAPPY STR[gibberish wavy line]," where the rights side of the face is a neutral expression.
