Time to go out and buy a cupcake!

Via Cupcakes Take the Cake.

That's right, there's another anti-cupcake article, this time in Vanity Fair. OK, so its not directed only at cupcakes, but at all things 'cute'. Cupcakes are mentioned on page 3 of the 5 page monster.

Here is a partial list of some of the terms the article lists as either symptoms or causes of our nations chronic cuteness problem:
Youtube, Facebook, DNA, celebrity's baby photos, Jon & Kate, small cars, Twitter, Google, Geico, The Bush years, Barack Obama, candy, suicide, Japan's postwar culture of the 1940s and 1950s, anime, modern technology and World War II.

World War II is no more responsible for cute culture than feminism is. Oh yeah, but saying that would alienate your mostly female reader base, now wouldn't it? Nice job of throwing in every other feasible or not so feasible keyword though.

There is so much I want to say in response to this article. Instead I'll keep it short and super sweet: its Crap. And by Crap I mean Shit.

So go out and buy a cupcake ASAP.

And maybe punch someone in the face afterwords. Just to show your balanced.
