Tuesday was Mitt Romney’s 72nd birthday, and by no surprise, he received a birthday cake with candles on it, but what shocked us all was his weird way of blowing out said candles.
Romney shared a video of him being presented with the Twinkie cake on Twitter and all anyone could notice was how he blew out his candles.
As birthday tradition holds, people put candles on cakes and just before you blow them out, you make a wish. In no where, will you find people picking up each candle individually and blowing them out. You can’t get 72 wishes, Mitt!
This dates back to the Ancient Romans, when people brought cakes with candles on it to make them glow like the moon.
No luck this year for the birthday boy! Twitter users couldn’t help themselves from making fun of him.
This is the most bizarre technique for blowing out birthday candles that I’ve ever witnessed. Mitt Romney is a deeply weird dude. pic.twitter.com/kLGuJawDpv— Bradford Pearson (@BradfordPearson) March 12, 2019
I see people patting Mitt Romney on the back for taking candles out of his birthday cake one by one and blowing on them because it’s “more hygienic.” Wrong! He still slobbers all over the cake. pic.twitter.com/ETtQhUmHox— Vic Berger IV (@VicBergerIV) March 12, 2019
Mitt Romney has been alive for 72 years and apparently has never seen a normal person blow out birthday candles— bart (@bart_smith) March 12, 2019
Romney later explained himself on TMZ, saying he had a bit of a cold and didn’t want to get anyone who might be sharing his cake sick.
So now that we’re over that, we can talk about his “cake.” Not only was it made of Twinkies, it was made of upright Twinkies “glued” together by what appears to be frosting.
He is a man of interesting tastebuds. Last year, Romney shared that his favorite type of meat was hotdogs.
