The concept of a resignation letter seems so antiquated. The first time I ever had to write one, my old boss took one look at it and was like, “Why the fuck couldn’t you just say ‘I quit’ and save the paper?” People try and get creative with it, like this asshole who did it in the form of a dance video that went viral.
But really, is there any way to do it that couldn’t be done more succinctly than kicking down your cubicle walls, urinating on your shitty Dell computer monitor and then flipping two birds as you walk out the door?
Apparently, yes there is: You can do it in cake form.

Mark Herman, a Newscast Director at Tuscon, Arizona’s CBS affiliate KOLD, quit his job by turning in a resignation letter printed on a cake. He posted a picture of the cake on Reddit because, well, if you didn’t put something on Reddit these days, did it really happen?
Herman told a blogger that he decided to take the sweet route because, “nobody can be mad or sad at a cake.”
Seems like a nice gesture, right? Unless there’s something more sinister afoot here. What if his boss is allergic to chocolate? What if he hates his soon-to-be former coworkers so much that he decided to play the long game and give them this cake in the hopes that they’ll eat it and get diabetes? Kill ’em with kindness…or, in this case, sweetness.
Mark, you clever, sadistic bastard..
