Not Everyone Needs Cake

In The Inquirer:

“Imagine a baking competition — the Great Pennsylvania Bake-Off — where contestants must bake the best cake. Contestant A is given cookbooks, state-of-the-art equipment, and a fully stocked pantry. Contestant B receives one grocery bag of expired ingredients, no recipes, and an Easy-Bake Oven. When A’s beautiful cake wins, one commentator says it’s a shame B didn’t try harder, and another remarks, “Not everyone needs cake, anyway.”
