But I R-E-A-L-L-Y want to do it.

I work in a very large company and there's this person very, very, very high up that will be exiting very soon (fingers crossed). My creative mind has been busy and ..... I'm already planning on it.

So . . . I want to make this cake with a castle on top that has landed on someone, the witch fondant looks like the witch of the east legs (from The Wizard of Oz) and I have purchased a micro chip and have the music that plays "ding dong the witch is dead".

Should I? I soooooo want to. The place will erupt with cheer when this person is gone.

God please forgive me for my evil thoughts.

I think the IDEA is really funny but care needs to be taken with those kinds of things. The chances of it gettng back to that person are very good. You never know where this person will end up and you could have to deal with him/her in the future.

Its more than whether it gets back to the person. While many in the office may dislike this individual, there could folks, especially higher up that respect and potentially like this individual. And even if the person is gone it nonetheless a sign of disrespect (deserved or not) that folks higher up may not take kindly to. There is a difference between folks talking around the water cooler and leading an open celebration that disparages the individual. Its a funny idea, but better be sure how it will be received.

Can you do it for a private function with a select group? I think it's a bit like going for a job interview - you never badmouth your last company, because it makes your new company wonder what you will say about them.

the others make some good points. I say nix the idea for the work place. BUT.. you could make the cake for yourself !!

I think the idea is really funny...and I am sure a lot of people can relate to your feelings. But it is work and I believe you should be professional at work. You don't want this to reflect badly on you in the future. You never know what might be said afterwards.

Oh man, you guys are so nice.

I don't know, it's so very tempting.

I'd say throw yourself a little party...just away from the work place...lol...then you have the "know" of who will see it to make sure it doesn't get back to the wrong people...Great idea by the way!!!

It might feel good to you in the moment....but I think it could seriously come back to haunt you.

I love the idea BUT I agree with those that have said to do it away from the workplace with people that share your feelings. I do hope that you do this cake because I would love to see your photos.

It IS a great idea thumbs_up.gif

Whether or not you actually have any kind of party, I would love to see you make this cake. It really does sound like a great concept.

I had a supervisor (she was actually my boss's boss) who was a heinous....you know. Anyway, after firing one guy and having a black mark on her HR record because he won his grievance, she was targeting me. Why? Pffft, I dunno. Maybe it's because I'm so cute and she was a hag?

Sooo....the day I heard she was not only RIF'd (essentially her entire department was removed), she was escorted from the building, I ran to my boss's office, shut the door, sang, "Ding dong the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead!" all the while dancing and hopping and jumping.

One of the most freeing moments of my life.

That being said, in your shoes, I'd make the cake for home, and enjoy the sound of the wicked witch leaving. icon_wink.gif

Wicked is on the road right now. Any chance it's coming to a city near you?

If so, suddenly become a fan and talk it up a bit. Then I think you could get away with it under that pretext.

Or would that be evil? LOL
