  • Mitt Romney's Birthday Candle Blowing Out Technique is Weird

U.S. senator for Utah Mitt Romney took his time blowing out every candle individually on a surprise birthday cake made from his 'favorite snack, ' from his staff on Tuesday, and Twitter took its time roasting him for it.

This morning, Romney posted a video of his office surprise party and cake to Twitter.

Romney then began to blow out his birthday candles by removing them from the cake, one by one, to extinguish the flames.

A few, however, came to the politician's defense, pointing out that expelling air directly over a cake is likely to spread germs.

And they may have a point - scientifically speaking, blowing out birthday candles may actually increase cake bacteria by up to 1,400 percent. Yum.

"You may think you don't need to watch this video of Mitt Romney getting a cake made out of twinkies, but otherwise how will you find out what completely weird way Mitt Romney blows out birthday candles", one user wrote.

Nellie Brown, director of Workplace Health and Safety Programs at Cornell University, agrees that the GOP politician is on the right track when it comes to preventing the spread of germs, even if it was ultimately a hygiene fail.

Romney said, "My team surprised me with a cake made out of my favorite snack - twinkies!"

Just like the candles on the cake, Twitter was ablaze with opinions.
