UPDATE 2: This story has been revealed as a hoax perpetrated by the author of the Inquisitr piece and his girlfriend, the Jessica Eckert in the story.

Inquisitr has taken the post down.

More information: Story about Costco pulling dinosaur cake was hoax by Insquisitr contributor

UPDATE: After being contacted by a reader, Raw Story has attempted to verify this story independently and has not been able to reach anyone at the Mesa, AZ Costco warehouse who can speak to the veracity of this story. It should be noted that U.S. stores do not appear to offer online ordering for pre-designed birthday cakes and that the link in the original Inquisitr story clicks through to Costco, Australia.

A post on a Costco forum from 2012 said that cakes are only sold in-store and that online pre-ordering is not available.

Raw Story is continuing to attempt to verify this story.

Big box chain Costco has eliminated a dinosaur birthday cake from its bakery offerings after an Arizona mom with a vivid imagination complained that it promoted Satanism, reports The Frisky.

According to Jessica Eckerdt of Queen Creek she purchased the cake from Costco for her son’s birthday party, and after lighting the candles and preparing to sing “Happy Birthday To You” noticed that the legs and feet of the blue and green dinosaur looked like the number “666,” the Sign of the Beast.

The cake, seen above, has only three of the stylized legs which could also be mistaken for three upside-down commas.

In an email to Costco she wrote: “I was extremely shocked and upset to see a demonic symbol written clear as day on my six-year-old son’s birthday cake. What was supposed to be a whimsical dinosaur became something very distasteful. I was extremely surprised at Costco for allowing such an inappropriate joke be sold to an unsuspecting victim.”

Although there was no further evidence that the popular discount retailer was attempting to indoctrinate children into the ways of Satan, the company has pulled the whimsical cake from it website and retail locations.

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Published

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
