Let Them Eat Cake

Mommy: "What sounds good for breakfast, Sweetie?"

Darren (matter-of-factly): "Some birthday cake."

Mommy: "Darren, birthday cake is NOT a healthy breakfast. Seriously, what would you like?"

Darren (exasperated): "Mom, don't you remember Maurice Sendak's book, In the Night Kitchen? In his story---if you can recall---it concludes with, 'And thanks to Mickey, we have cake every morning.'
Who am I to argue with a literature reference?
