UPDATE: "Bobby Cocks" cake, now with video!

May 5, 2010, 10:28 PM EST

UPDATE: Cox told reporters Wednesday that he didn’t even know about the blunder at the time and laughed off the idea that it might bother him.  Good ole Bobby.

3:25pm: The story is nice, but I’m not gonna lie to you: the video really makes it come alive:

    I definitely should not have laughed as hard as I did at that. I think the muzak coupled with old dudes standing around a cake that had “cocks” on it sent it over the top.

    That is utterly fantastic.

    Gonna guess that there is a porn star out there with that name. If he were still doing his thing after 50 years, would the Senate give him a cake too? And what shape would it be? Someone should dub over the sappy muzak with some classic ’70s porn funk.

    I looooooove this kind of humor! How long from the reading of the cake, did the naked woman jump out–sending chunks of the celebratory ritual flying, and yelling “SURPRISE”?
    I’LL MISS BOBBY COCKS (did I spell that right?) and, hope that he lets us know how he is doing!
    If you’re ever in C.C., CO, look me up and we can hit the slots together!
    Love you, and appreciate what you’ve done for Baseball, and I’ll never forget the great times you made possible.
