Only in Arkansas…

My dad wrote the following email and gave me permission to post it here.  (Our family originally hails from the South):

What [your aunt] calls “the Memphis factor” is much too widespread to be identified with only that city.  However, I do believe it’s especially evident in the South.  A good example occurred yesterday when a friend of a friend here in Little Rock had a “going away” party for a lady in her office.  One of their supervisors called the Little Rock Wal-Mart and ordered the cake.

He told them to write:

“Best Wishes Suzanne” and underneath that write “We will miss you”.

The attached picture shows how the cake turned out..

I’ll spare you my analysis.

    Seriously, that is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while! I can’t believe anyone would REALLY be that dense, though. Kinda sad.

    Good stuff, huh? I think a lot of Arkansas jokes are over the top, but they aren’t helping themselves with things like this. (And again, I can say that because I was born about 3 hours from Little Rock.)
