​Pupcakes!!!!!

I know.

These look dangerously human-friendly, no?

I mean, if it wasn’t for the Milk Bone garnish, you would never know.

My friend almost took a bite.

Until she saw the bone.

So I had to leave a note by the cupcakes.

A big giant sign.

“NOT FOR HUMANS” it said.

But Butters knew what was up.

He patiently did a pose.

Then devoured.

No wait.

I don’t even think I saw him chew.
