USB Flash Cake-Wreck You Wouldn't Believe
A customer brought a picture of her boss into a bakery to be made into a cake -- so far so good, right? She handed the photo over on a USB flash drive and when she returned to pick the cake up she found that instead of the photo of her boss immortalized in frosting, the bakery had drawn the spitting image of the actual thumb drive she'd given them.

No encryption software would have helped here.
I guess some people just don't quite understand how all this digital stuff works. I can only imagine that the cake baker was thinking the customer was a bit "off" for wanting a cake with this funny looking device on it.
