Reddit has the power to help change the world — It also has the power to make the term “put a cat on it” trend for almost no reason whatsoever.
A mom in Indiana recently ordered a graduation cake for her daughter Laura and somewhere along the way her message was miscommunicated.
Laura’s mom asked the bakery to “put a little cap on it.” That message was suppose to mean put a graduation cap on her daughters head.
When she picked up the cake the bakery had “put a little cat on it.”
Laura quickly uploaded her graduate cake to Reddit where the sheer stupidity of the post gave users a reason to upvote the post.
In responded to her Reddit post Laura says:
“When my mom got to the store and started laughing they tried to wipe off the cat and put on a plastic cap, but she told them to keep it.”
