In response to one of the most bizarre instances of censorship in history, Stephen Colbert baked a batch of "cum cakes." So, we can safely say free speech won the day yet again.
In short, a South Carolina mother ordered a custom graduation cake for her son with the phrase "Congrats Jacob! Summa Cum Laude class of 2018" on it from Publix, a regional supermarket. Publix found this common Latin phrase, meaning "with highest honors," to be unprintably vulgar and simply delivered the cake with "Summa --- Laude" instead. She then vented her outrage on Facebook, in a post that's no longer available, calling the incident "utterly ridiculous" and using an angry-face emoji.
"Shame on you Publix," the Facebook post read, "for turning an innocent Latin phrase into a total embarrassment for having to explain to my son and others (including my 70 year old mother) about this joke of a cake."
