If you're having a "bad week" then the cake could wait until next week. If you smoke, have Internet, you aren't poor.
Bull too

The bugs might have been weevils.
A 'bad week' would be the perfect time to do something to cheer the family up like say, bake a cake.

Ive worked at a plant that made cookies. Belive me, all of you are eating alot of bugs. The weevils, or some kind of bug, would put egg pods on the sides of the flour silos. They would build up so bad we had to scrape them off. Right into the flour. FDA approved.

Another red dye used in foods, FD&C Red Dye #40 (alternatively known as Red #40), is often mistakenly assumed to be a euphemism for cochineal or carmine. It's not — it's bug-free and is actually derived from coal.

Food for thought...since red dye made from bugs is considered a natural food source it is exempt from being registered with the FDA.

We could all learn a lesson from MissSmartyPants. Instead of being judgemental she tried to help. I love random acts of kindness :)
