Can I use my trebuchet?

Just asking for a friend.

I thought most fruitcakes get tossed after you eat it.

I like fruitcake!

I see instructions for how to toss cakes, but nothing seems to be available to tell participants how to toss their cookies.

Klezmerphan, I find that mixing with a couple pints of Mad Dog helps with the cookie tossing.

There are stories and legends of good fruitcakes. When archeologists opened King Tut's tomb they supposedly found a fruitcake that looked fresh. They ate it and claimed it was tasty. It did not, however, bring them good luck.

Why tempt fate and Egyptian curses?

I can't imagine the event could get liability insurance. If somebody gets hit by one of those things, it'll kill 'em.

A 5* snork to Rod Nunley for giving us a great laugh!
