Face Time On CW

Thursday, November 13, 2008

This is so exciting, everyone: I had no idea there were Doctor Who fans in the Walmart bakery! Check this out:


How cool is that, huh? It's totally Lady Cassandra O'Brien Dot Delta Seventeen!

[crickets chirping]

What?

[Pin dropping. Loudly.]

What's with all the blank looks? Are you guys telling me you don't know who Cassandra O'Brien Dot Delta Seventeen is? Really?

Oh.

Well, here, she looks like this:

See, she's a human from the future, and she's had so much plastic surgery that there's nothing left but her face. Get it? (Really, I don't see how you guys survive without this kind of quality programming in your lives.)

Ok, now go look at that "cake" again, and tell me it's not her. Go on.


Hm? Oh. Yeah, I guess you do have a point: she doesn't have eyebrows. Or a nose. Or weird purply hair tufts. Or antennae. But if that's not supposed to be Cassandra O'Brien Dot Delta Seventeen, then I'm going to go out on a limb here and say maybe the Walmart in question should consider employee drug screening. Not that I'm implying anything by that, of course - nosirree.

Thomas R., you thought it was her, too - right?

OMG!!! I thought it looked like Cassandra before I saw that you wrote that! Yay for another Whovian!!!

MOISTURIZE ME!!! Bahaha!

whomajigi said...

Oddly enough, I totally saw Cassandra too. Nice to see I wasn't the only one. :D

Amy said...

I'm with you. I thought of Lady Cassandra as soon as I saw that one. :-)

Katie said...

Thank you for helping to spread the Doctor Who love! I squeed with joy when I saw my favorite show combined with my favorite blog. It was an odd sensation to have the squee combined with the shudder resulting from that scary cake.

Does icing count as moisturizer?

bonnie said...

haha i'm so glad i got that reference right away. i hope for more doctor who wrecks in future.

Shannon said...

I thought it was a Madonna Who'sThat Girl Cake. Still ugly as sin no matter what it was supposed to be. It looks like it would taste like the 80's.

ErIca said...

AT least she has here sunglasses with her.

cherokeefox said...

OKAY-I've been really concentrating on this, up close and my take on it is...UUHH...UUUHHH. Lady thingy in the Cloud. I have no idea!!! EEEKKK!!! What a waste of precious time.

Lizzi said...

I totally knew who you meant...does that make me a geek?

Oh my gosh, that is sooo awesome! Give Joan Rivers a few more years, and that's what you'll get.

Spain said...

Moisturize me. MOISTURIZE ME!!!

M--- said...

I'm not a big Who watcher, but even I knew who you were talking about. Well, not initially, not until I got to the visual aid...but as soon as I saw THAT I so knew.

DavidTennantsWannabeGirlfried said...

Sorry to get really anal but I can't help noticing people calling it Dr. Who (kudos for watching it though!). It's proper name is, and always has been, Doctor Who, with no abbreviations. That's why the spin off Torchwood works - it's an anagram, see? Orhwd doesn't really work...

Loving the cakes though ;-)

Nicole said...

I think small children might recognise it as Spiderus from the kids' show "Miss Spider's sunnypatch friends".. in fact the features are almost perfect.

This is the best picture I could find to display

KLZ said...

Why does it say "2001" on her head?

Rachel said...

When I saw it, I was totally thinking that thing from Doctor Who! and then I read your note and I was very glad that I wasn't the only one. I'm only 14, and totally got it. But my dad, who introduced me to Doctor Who!, had NO IDEA what it was.

Kimba said...

I saw this & thought "cassandra!" and then I read your post...brilliant! Glad to see great minds think alike!

Lodestone and Ladys Mantle said...

Moisturize Me! Moisturize Me!
It totally looks like Cassandra; is it bad to eat the last human?

Abby said...

Oh, I thought it was the Face of Bose, or whatever that thing was, but I totally see Cassandra!!!

ahailes said...

That actually was the first thing I thought of!

Gigi said...

I just found more reasons to love this site. And the geek party in the comments just warms my heart.

layna said...

I showed my boyfriend this cake (just the picture) and he said "Hey, it is Cassandra!" and we both had a good laugh when we actually read the write up :)

Jug said...

I thought the purply hair tufts were goggles. And that she was just a alien Amelia Earhart.

Anonymous said...

maybe it's a sorry attempt at Spidarus from Miss. Spiders Sunny Patch. but who knows. -l.m.

bretsgirl said...

I was super excited when you made the Dr. Who reference. My husband and I "can't" survive without our good ole Doctor!!!

erinjade86 said...

Ahahaha! My first thought upon seeing it was "Holy crap, it's Cassandra! I can just hear her telling us about an 'iPod'!"

I'm so glad you watch Doctor Who. Seriously.

Anonymous said...

No, I think that's Bjork!

KathyB said...

here i was minding my own business looking at cakes and i have this dr. who business thrust into my consciousness. it had to happen sooner or later, but my god. horrifying skin face lady. i'm going to go curl up in bed now.

Mom said...

Yeah, You like Who Too. I knew you were good people.
It must be Cassandra before one of her recent surgeries since she has that tuft of hair and the eyebrows. But I could see the resemblance. :D

Jenn V. said...

Don't worry. I actually knew who you were talking about right away. Yeay for geekery!

Anonymous said...

YAY FOR WHO!!! Like I needed another reason to love this site.

Sam said...

Yeah! Another Who watcher! May I order a Tennant cake please :-)

Anonymous said...

lol i LOVE Doctor Who! it's a shame David Tennant is leaving... by the way it does look like Cassandra in a way, but i liked her best in the Doctor's body :]

Jynxed said...

I'm glad I'm not the only person who saw Cassandra! After Harry Potter jokes, Muppets references, and Threadless cakes, and witty snide remarks, you have finally proved yourself as a truly intelligent person with this Doctor Who reference.

Meitrannan said...

I TOTALLY see that! Even the "lipstick" :0 D Hey...who DOESN'T love DW????? I would like to see them in my office RIGHT NOW!

Tessa said...

I don't get along without Doctor Who. I have Obsessive Doctor Who Disorder (ODWD). LOVE IT!
