Sorry! I Can't Resist

I was strolling down the cake mixes aisle at my local grocery store today and found this.

BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!! What in the world is this?

I did a double take when I spotted it, stopped, stared at it for a minute and walked on down the aisle. Then when I thought nobody was paying attention, I turned around and went back to take a picture.

Am I the only person who finds this hilarious? I know I have an immature sense of humor, but how can you not find this funny?

Anyone happen to know what spotted dick is?

UPDATE: I just went into wikipedia to look up the definition. This is what it said:

Spotted dick is a steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit (usually currants), commonly served with either custard or butter and brown sugar. Spotted refers to the dried fruit (which resemble spots) and Dick may be a contraction/corruption of the word pudding (from the last syllable) or possibly a corruption of the word dough.[1] Another explanation offered for the latter half of the name is that it comes from the German word for "thick," in reference to the thickened suet mixture. There are many nicknames for a Spotted Dick including "Spotted Richard", "Dick in a box", "Dotted Lloyd", "Mixey Dick", "Dick with a dot" and "Dickie Burton" as well as many others. It is a cultural part of English Cuisine.

Awesome. I think next time I have friends over, I will serve them some dick in a box.
