RIP: Santa Cupcake

Sadly, I have to report that the Discordian community lost an important member on Saturday. Santa Cupcake was more than a mascot and a vagabond, he was an inspiration to everyone. He didn't let the fact that he was just a holiday time convection stop him from spreading his message of hope and togetherness around the globe. He was officially sent off of this Mortal Coil with a proper Viking funeral. You will be missed, lil buddy.

Squid's Eulogy:

It started as a joke.
In December of 2007 my friend presented me with Santa Cupcake. I was supposed to eat it but as I began to pull back the paper I looked down into his glassy, shiny frosting eyes and I couldn't bring myself to do it.
I set him on my desk and there he sat. For a year and four months. Without any decomposition at all.
He's been on many adventures. He survived the election, he's fallen off the desk, been trampled, licked and sat on by cats.
Toward the last few weeks of his life my sympathy started to grow for his condition. He reminded me of a person in a coma on life support. The back of his head had fallen off and been re-squished back into place several times and I felt it was time to end his suffering.

On April 4th, 2009 we did the humane thing and put Santa Cupcake down.

then we laughed till we peed.
