    What 1st Amendment rights?

    Giggle, giggle. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. Read on:

    WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCIV/CNN) - A South Carolina high school graduate had a not-so-sweet surprise on his graduation cake.

    The local Publix grocery store thought Jacob Koscinski's summa cum laude honor was inappropriate. He graduated Saturday with the highest honors from a Christian-based homeschooling program, so his mom ordered a cake.

    "He did not know we were getting a cake because he is not a big cake eater, so we were all standing there waiting to see it and when we opened it, it was a huge shock to all of us," said Cara Koscinski, his mother.

    She ordered the $70 sheet cake online through Publix, but she was alerted profane or special characters weren't allowed when she requested the bakery include Jacob's honor. The mom clarified her request with special instructions.

    She said when her husband picked up the cake, he didn't know the bakery omitted the middle Latin word, and it was replaced with hyphens.

    "The cake experience was kind of frustrating and humiliating because I had to explain to my friends and family like what that meant," Jacob Koscinski said. "And they were giggling uncontrollably. At least my friends were."

    The Koscinskis said a manager from Publix apologized and offered a refund. For now, they're nibbling on the leftover dessert and looking forward to Jacob's freshman year at Wingate University, where he plans to major in pre-med.

    "It's fine for us to be compensated for the cake," Cara Koscinski said. "We're just happy that our son graduated school and has a bright future."
