Summa Cum Proudly

News from the bizarre... PUBLIX apparently has figured it should censor a cake featuring the term 'Summa Cum Laude.'

Yes it means highest honors.

But maybe the censors at the site think otherwise..

A Publix grocery store, apparently not familiar with the prospect of finishing.........with high honors........decided it was indecent..


Cara Koscinski explained how she ordered the 3/4 inch sheet cake online through Publix.
But when she requested the bakery include Jacob's honor, she was alerted that profane or special characters weren't allowed. Cara clarified her request with special instructions. 
"The website had censored me and this is a website that you can refer to for the Latin term for Summa Cum Laude which means highest honors," she said.
Cara said when her husband picked up the cake from Publix on Savannah Highway and Main Road, he didn't know the bakery omitted the middle Latin word. It was replaced with hyphens 
"The cake experience was kind of frustrating and humiliating because I had to explain to my friends and family like what that meant. And they were giggling uncontrollably. At least my friends were," said Jacob Koscinski.
