A man was left flabbergasted after his wife refused to sleep in the same bed as him because he came home with a small cake one day randomly - she said he shouldn't have bought it

(Thanks to John Lobert)

"Flabbergasted" is similar to, but a little bit less than, "gobsmacked."

Well, at least the vocabulary is expanding here.

Proving once again that you can't have your cake & eat it, too.

That sounds like a pretty frosy relationship, but the relationship between those two sisters seems to be more representative of being flabbergasted.

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no

If your wife is too controlling to let you buy a cheap cake, my (unasked for and unwanted) advice is to run. Run fast. Run far. Don’t look back.

Well, doesn't that just .... (apologies)

"That day changed my life. I'm a much happier person than I would have been."

So it's chocolate cake after all?

This is going to be big news here in California, where people are chugging green smoothies to change their lives.

The French Foreign Legion beckons. Recruitment runs 24/7/365. Eat cake in the southern hemisphere.

I'm gobsmacked.

@Steverino: quick, call the press.

So now Flabbergastery?
