Point for Cake

Posted in Bean, Money, Point for Cake, Ralph by Aaron Burr on March 9, 2007

A once-recurring bit titled “The Burning Question” featured staffers (usually Ralph and Money) debating a pointless topic while Bean would keep score of who was winning the contest. One such debate, ‘Which is better, cake or pie?’ lead to the catch phrases “point for cake” meaning something good and “point for pie” meaning something bad. Soon after the bit ran, a caller claimed that the phrases were being used on the set of The Shield and that guest star Glenn Close started using them herself.
