W is for Wombat

How better to celebrate Wombat Day (October 22) than with realistic, detailed party favors of the creature made of chocolate?


Apparently the folks in Australia enjoy chocolate wombats and as well as bilbys for their versions of the more common chocolate Easter bunny.  Still, if you want to celebrate Wombat Day in the proper traditional manner, that calls for a Wombat Cake.


If that’s a little too much realism for you, let’s go to the other end of the spectrum for pure fantasy:


For the benefit of people like me who hadn’t the faintest idea what an actual wombat really looks like, allow me to provide you with a glimpse of the adorable critter au naturel.


Which animal would you like to see modeled in chocolate?

Witty banter.  Bonus points for literary allusions and correct historical references.

Fresh flowers.  It seems like the older I get, the rarer the occasion upon which I receive fresh flowers.  I may have to start growing them for myself!

Classic rock and roll.  I must qualify this by saying I’m referring to the music I listened to in high school.  Does that mean I’m a classic?
