Costco Drops Children’s Dinosaur Birthday Cake After Arizona Mom Complains It Promotes Satanism

Big box chain Costco has eliminated a dinosaur birthday cake from its bakery offerings after an Arizona mom with a vivid imagination complained that it promoted Satanism, reports The Frisky.


According to Jessica Eckerdt of Queen Creek she purchased the cake from Costco for her son’s birthday party, and after lighting the candles and preparing to sing “Happy Birthday To You” noticed that the legs and feet of the blue and green dinosaur looked like the number “666,” the Sign of the Beast.

In an email to Costco she wrote: “I was extremely shocked and upset to see a demonic symbol written clear as day on my six-year-old son’s birthday cake. What was supposed to be a whimsical dinosaur became something very distasteful. I was extremely surprised at Costco for allowing such an inappropriate joke be sold to an unsuspecting victim.”

Although there was no further evidence that the popular discount retailer was attempting to indoctrinate children into the ways of Satan, the company has pulled the whimsical cake from it website and retail locations.
