Why is this guy smiling?

Maybe because nobody is actually going to eat him...


Some fun Fruitcake trivia:

Fruitcake originated in ancient Egypt and was considered an essential food for the afterlife.

According to Harper's Index, 1991, the ratio of the density of the average fruitcake to the density of mahogany is 1:1.

When a research firm polled some 1,000 adults about what they did with fruitcake, 38% said they gave it away, 28% actually ate it, 13% used it as a doorstop, 9% scattered it for the birds, 4% threw it out, and 8% couldn’t remember.

So, what do you think I'll do with the fruitcake I get this year?
