A few months ago, my wife and I attended a neighborhood party in the park across the street from our apartment. The party was a potluck (we brought potato salad), so we had a wide variety of foods to choose from, including cupcakes: chocolate cupcakes with little Dora the Explorer plastic rings stuck into the icing, and vanilla cupcakes with Hello Kitty rings stuck in the icing.

I ate a Dora the Explorer cupcake, and I kept the ring — it now hangs, appropriately, from the mast of the ship that is the base of my bedside lamp.

My wife ate a Hello Kitty cupcake. And when she removed her ring, she discovered a smiley face in the icing!

A smiley face in the icing!
