Just when you thought that it was safe, here it comes again, Fruitcake, Part 1 million.
I still stick to my origin theory that hundreds of years ago, someone accidentally made one of these things, and thought, " Hm, no one will ever eat such a thing, so I will put a bow on it and give it to my least favorite relative and tell them it is their Christmas gift." Well, I am here to tell you that same, old, battered, fruitcake is still being handed out all of the world. No one ever eats it, they just put it in a closet until next Christmas, take it out then, put a new bow on it, and give it to their least favorite relative or co-worker. And, that, my friend, is the true story of the fruitcake.
