GorT told his friends and family a few years ago that the whole “cupcake industry” as it were has 3 to 5 years of viability. Then people will tire of it, there will be some new trendy thing and all those storefronts will be available.
Fast forward to today when GorT reads the following article during his morning recharging with the 24,781kW Duotrinium reactor.
I’ve had Georgetown Cupcakes and a few from other cupcake places around and paying $3 and up for some cake and frosting has largely been uninspiring. Sure, I’ve had a few good ones but nothing worthy of forming a whole industry around it along with TV shows, etc. I hope those in the industry are listening and planning their next move….soon.
Even The Wall Street Journal concluded that Crumbs’ (and essentially the rest of these places) downfall was and is the result of mass “gourmet-cupcake burnout.”
On Monday, a Crumbs spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal that it had been forced to stop operating while it considered its “limited remaining options.”
One of those options could be bankruptcy, she said.
I wonder when the Obama Administration will step in and consider a bailout as I’m sure it’ll be devastating to be without the cupcake industry.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
