Yellow Cake cartoon by animator Nick Cross

Animator Nick Cross created this fantastic funny animal cartoon featuring geopolitical bullying, social unrest, worker revolt, and some tasty yellow cakes. I'd kill for a yellow cake right about now.


  1. I was about to point out that in the opening scene the baker appears to be making some kind of biscuit rather than a true cake, but then I realized that bunny rabbits don’t usually bake at all so I should probably just let it go.

  2. This has to be the most depressing thing I have watched this week. As a metaphor for the current state of the world is almost too hard to watch.

    That said, it manages to get the revolt thing quite right. In the end, revolutions are crushed by foreign intervention, or corrupted from the inside until they become as evil as the regime they originally fought.

    It seems that no matter what they do, the oppressed have no hope left.

    Now if you excuse me, I will go get drunk with my pal, Quetzalcoatl…..

  3. Amazing! Better than Wondershowzen. Satire so real and crushing, I must share it with everyone.

    Material like this makes me hope that the Net replaces TV. That could lead to some serious change of public opinion and ultimately a radically different society.

    BTW my CAPTCHA was Indochina

  4. So relevant! Er, for the most part. I don’t think our current trade state with anyone stemmed from an appeasement to not invade, though.

  5. Keneke: you don’t think if a major supplier interrupted our oil supply (not likely, I know) that we wouldn’t invade immediately?
