Custom Portal maps and Cake

A rather stunning phenomenon. At least 1 out of every 2 maps has the word Cake in its name. Why is this? Honestly I don't understand what cake has to do with it. (Unless the map ends with a cake or something.)

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not saying the name has any effect of the overall score of the map, but the fact is that if people continue doing this, people won't be able to tell the maps apart from their name, and it will become very repeating. Fast. Let me show you an example:

    pl_cake
    portal_cakefest
    cake_is_a_lie
    questforcake
    cakezor_portal
    etccake...
    etccake...

Get my drift?

and you have to continue until you run out of cake...

No but seriously, with cake being such a major thing in Portal I guess this was to be expected. Most likely (hopefully) this is only a phenomenon we're going to see in the first few weeks of mapping for Portal until even the mappers grow tired of it.

No cake in my map names.
