It’s the stuff nightmares (and American Pie films) are made of – your parents walking in on you getting intimate with your other half.
This incident is usually followed by a few awkward dinners and cringeworthy talk about safe sex.
But one mother decided to employ the age old adage ‘cake solves everything’.
The suspicious cake had ‘Sorry we caught you dry humping our son – we still love you!’ spelling out with icing on the top, and was apparently a gift to the girlfriend of Reddit user ‘One_Skinny_Mexican’ after his mother walked in on him and his girlfriend going at it.
It gets worse.
According to One_Skinny_Mexican, his mother ‘wanted to make the cake, organize a flash mob, and present it to my girlfriend at her workplace’.
The weirder this tale gets, the more likely it becomes that the cake and the story behind were probably both made to score some Reddit Karma.
Either that, or someone has a mother who is very understanding of everything, except for where to draw the line.
