Found July 19, 2012 on Shirts With Random Triangles:
Here is yet another entry for the "Bad groom's cake" department. This was one comes from Darren Rovell's twitter feed. And this one might just be the winner: A Joe Paterno groom's cake. It's hard to tell which if the worst idea here is the actual concept of a Paterno Cake. The fact it exists, or that Paterno looks like a Muppet. Luckily, this was apparently served at a rehearsal dinner, and not the actual wedding, because this is the sort of thing that would definitely ruin the happiest day of some bride's life.  It does bring up the absurdity of people who support Joe Paterno even after all that has been revealed. It also gives me the chance to bring up that I sometimes believe the final fate of the Paterno statue at Penn State should be inspired by what Moses did with the Golden Calf in the Bible - burn it, grind it to powder, mix it with water, and make Paterno supporters eat it.

Of course someone had a Joe Paterno Groom’s cake at their wedding

You’ll notice a lack of posts on here about Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky of the Penn State Nittany Lions. Not something I like talking about. It’s nothing you can make a joke about without being a pretty terrible person. Well, someone decided to make a cake for their Groom’s wedding rehearsal and it has gone viral. Not to make a statement on Joe Paterno because Everyday...

Cartoonist Depicts Bear Bryant Kicking JoePa Out of Heaven

After former Penn State coach Joe Paterno passed away in January, cartoonist Rob Tornoe drew a cartoon of Bear Bryant welcoming Paterno into the pearly gates. Fast forward seven months later, Tornoe updated his cartoon and this time it was less heartfelt. Much less heartfelt. Tornoe also wrote, "Like Sandusky in prison, Paterno is now in a place that knows how to deal...

Joe Paterno Statue: Leave It Up As Sobering Reminder

If you have a radio or a TV you know the big dilemma is about JoePa, moreover, the conundrum his standing statue in Happy Valley, PA presents. "Leave it up," and "take it down," each have their camp.

Joe Paterno's statue should stay

Over the weekend, after all the sordid details had come out on Penn State, after the Freeh report had been released, and as new information emerged that continued to paint an unflattering picture of the person that was Joe Paterno, my friend Matt (Yes, this Matt. What can I say, he’s an inquisitive guy) asked me a simple question on the whole situation. That question: Should the...

Hogg: PSU should invoke own death penalty

DETROIT -- It's time for Penn State to step up. The national debate has been whether the NCAA should give the Nittany Lions the death penalty in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky cover-up, or if it should be the Big Ten that swings the hammer. Neither one of them should get involved. This isn't about recruiting violations or athletes getting illegal benefits. That's where...
