A Chinese man thought baking a $800 necklace into a small cake and then presenting it to his girlfriend would be perfect mix of romance and humor.

Unfortunately, Xaio Li’s plan backfired when his apparently very hungry honey ate the cake in one bite.  Surgeons were able to retrieve the lavish gift after endoscopic surgery but the romance was pretty much dead by that point.

“She got her necklace back eventually,” Li explained.  ”But I’m not sure she will ever feel very comfortable wearing it even though I spent hours cleaning it for her.”

Now that’s a dedicated boyfriend.
