In a new survey on Christmas desserts, fruitcake did NOT come in last. In fact, it beat out two Christmas desserts that you'd THINK were way more popular.

What lost to fruitcake? Candy canes got 8% of the vote, and gingerbread only got 6%.  Miscellaneous other desserts got 24% of the vote...but if they weren't popular enough to make separate choices, then I say THEY'RE below fruitcake too.

Anyway, if you want to make people hate candy canes even MORE, there's a website selling boxes of PICKLE-FLAVORED CANDY CANES. They sound perfectly horrible.

On a related note, while searching for an image to go with this story, I ran across a couple of very strange videos.

People have WAAAAAY too much time on their hands.
