    I used to have a trio of clients, all brothers, who's christian names were "Rudolf Valentino", "Victor Hugo" and "Adolf Hitler".

    When I needed to disclose the names to the government, I received a phone call asking if it was a hoax

    One of the comments made a good point: when was the last time you saw a child's full name on a birthday cake? I imagine if they had gone in asking for a "Happy Birthday Adolph" cake the store would have thought it odd, maybe a little offensive, but not refused service. By asking for his full name the parents were just begging for attention, IMO.

    Ten bucks says it was a wrestling cake.

    I suspect the parents wanted it to to happen, if you look at the gallery :

    You'll see that they have a lot of nazi symbolism, tattoos etc.

    Yeah, Geoff. I figured they had been waiting three years for someone to refuse to serve them because of their kids' names and the overall package, ready to cry discrimination. I'm also guessing they didn't go into Shop Rite all humble and polite.

    Something about this kid makes me think he won't make a good racist, he looks like a little hippie.

    I don't know if this is true or not but one of the comments says this is an older story:

    this cake was ordered for the child's first birthday, not his recent 3rd, (2) they wanted SWASTIKAS on the cake, not something you put on a first year's birthday cake. (3) they wanted it FREE and (4) when offered a compromise, they refused.

    Ah heck. Where to start with this piece of non-news?

    First thought.

    Some people enjoying flaunting their life decisions and when they know that they are counter to the general public put them waaay out there in order to have a chance to get all up in your face about their "rights." Like children do, ya know?

    Sure, they have a "right" to get huffy. I suspect they think it's fun to do so. Certainly calls attention to their crusade.

    The bakery, if it's a private organization, has the right to refuse service not in line with their policy, including Jesus cakes. Hee.

    And, yes, what about the kids? Being used like objects to serve their patrents' needs. There's the real issue from my perspective. Sigh.
