If they have any sense, they'll immediately "re-gift" this find, as any recipient of a fruit cake ought to do.

Remarkably, still as effective a doorstop as it was 100 yrs ago.

Passed from generation to generation, and no one wants it? Another suggestion: Send it to the Congressional Cafeteria.

How can you tell the difference?

It should be obvious that fruitcake was kept under a pillow in the hut for defensive purposes.

So even the starving polar bears would not eat it?

A brazen gang of New York City rats described as, 'wearing leather jackets with their tails rolled up in 'ratbuns,' have demanded the fruitcake be turned over or de Blasio will be 'destroyed by their nuclear capable arsenal of sharp kitchen utensil capable warheads.'

I like fruitcake. Wanna fight about it?

Fruitcake may be hazardous to your health.

Much like Krampus, Kallikantzaroi are unaware of their true nature, as they only change at night during the twelve days of Christmas and do not change back until sunrise. This condition is only known to affect Indole Gentile children and is very rare. If Kallikantzaroi are allowed to eat large amounts of fruitcake, they will be cured of their condition at sunrise and return to their natural state.

@ImNotDave - sounds like a storyline from one of my favorite unintentional comedy TV Shows "Grimm" - most of the characters & plots could could conceivably occur in the shooting location...Portland, OR.

Doesn't everyone leave fruitcakes at NYC's Central Park for good luck?

Always keep a fruitcake in case of emergency Wesen attack.
