Gamboa enjoys taking a serious situation and pumping it up into melodrama and absurdity. Baby Kake and No Supper are two examples in this collection. They take the idea of a dysfunctional Latino family to extremes, with Baby Kake featuring a man dressed as Marie Antoinette commenting on a mother who resents losing her freedom by having to care for a baby and a father who only comes around once a month.
