Friends Don't Let Friends Cross The Streams

Friday, October 1, 2010

Don't let this happen to someone you love:

Get educated on Sci-Fi today.

Remember, Erika B., knowing is half the battle. For the other half we're going to need a wheelbarrow and maybe Miracle Max's holocaust cloak.
Keidi said...

There will be no survivors! The Dread Pirate Roberts takes no survivors. Are there any Princess Bride wrecks?

Dinobabe said...

The cloak didn't belong to the Albino, it belonged to Miracle Max and he gave it to Fezzik. lol

flying gargoyle said...

Oh, if only it had the Stargate symbols on the side our confusion would be complete!

(nice "The More You Know" reference!)

Beth Stoneman said...

Bahahahaa!!!! The Princess Bride reference at the end was great.

On another note, this is total sacrilege. I'm really sad now

Angie said...

Dang... Even I know better than to mix that stuff up.

amchornetgirl said...

Being born in 1975 means I love all your references!

Jess said...

Not to reveal myself as too much of a nerd and risk annoying you for correcting you, but the holocaust cloak came from Miracle Max's, if you're going by the movie, and the swamp where Fezzik had to find incredients for the miracle pill, if you're going by the book.

Princess Bride FTW!

Star Wars/Star Trek/Princess Bride crossover - for the WIN!

WV-renin - What would happen if Darth Vader had a renin with the Dred Pirate Roberts?

Karen said...

All I can think of when I see "the more you know" (besides the music) is the fake one Zach Braff did on Scrubs: "Don't smother your kids".

TXpiespies said...

oooh love princess bride. i thought the holocaust cloak was miracle max's . . guess i need to see it again!

spotshouse said...

"knowing is half the battle!" Cool, I didn't know you were a GI Joe geek, too. Awesome!

Stop it, I meant it!

I am not a huge fan of sci-fi and even I know that is just wrong!!

Jules AF said...

I assumed this was going to be a Ghostbusters post, and I got all excited. This was just as good though.

John said...

Funny stuff!

FWIW though, the holocaust cloak was Miracle Max's, not the albino's. Fezzig found it at Max's and "it fit so nice, he said I could have it."

Danger Boy said...

In some places, that cake would cause a full on RIOT.

Invisibleman said...

"Bye bye boys!"
"Have fun storming the Death Star!"

"Think it'll work?"
"It'll take a miracle...BYE!"

Anonymous said...

I know in my social circle this is like, a mortal sin. But we're not nerds...not at all! Although we in fact love all 3 of the referenced movies. Don't mix up the Wars and the Trek.

Bakingdom said...

Boy-oh-boy! You stepped in it now, with that holocaust cloak!

Gotta love the many random references you used! Really drives home how ridiculous that cake is!

I'm not a sci-fi fan, but even I know that those are Star Wars characters. Tee heee heee.


Fluffy Cow said...

Someone should be slapped for this.

And the cloak? It came from Epcot.

Cath said...

Is it sad or awesome that I just did the "The More You Know" song in my head?

john (the hubby of Jen) said...


All fixed. The cloak did, in fact, come from Miracle Max's house. Totally Jen's fault.

Katie said...

Two of my favorite things in one post - Star Wars and The Princess Bride!

Karyl said...

Hmmmmm... maybe it was a commentary of how much Trek rocks over Star Wars? You know, relegating SW to the side of the cake. Because if that's the Annoying Anakin figure, I'm with the wrecker.

Gween said...

The title makes me smile.
The cake just hurts my heart.

Donna said...

Ah the days when my now 25 year old son wanted to be Wesley (at age 3 or 4)and our neighbor's 3 year old daughter wanted to be a giant rat...The Princess Bride never loses it's magic!

mimi said...

Now THIS is far more offensive than anything posted in the past few days!

Anonymous said...

Is it possible the cake recipient just happened to like both? No? No? Why can't I have my Roddenberry and Lucas it too?!

teri said...

No more rhyming now, I mean it!

Oh I had all of my non-geek co workers playing light sabers today with burned out florescent tubes after looking at CW's for the better part of the morning! Good Friday!

Trevor said...

True story:

One day, on another cake website, a decorator was lookiing for ideas for a cake. IT was to be Star Wars themed birthday. She wanted to write "Star Date" and the birthday on it. I quickly jumped in with "No, no. One is Star Trek and one is Star Wars! Don't cross teh streams!"

Thankfully, there was someone on the website who actually GOT the Ghost Busters reference. That said, I heartily applaud your post today!

Jennifer said...

Ok how are people missing that there are FOUR referenced movies? Work it out folks.

Stephanie McGee said...

This is a popular mashup, isn't it? I seem to recall another similar wreck posted last year. Love the movie mashups references in the post!

sunflowereyes said...

I don't really watch sci-fi movies, but I can practically quote every line of The Princess Bride, and even I recognize the very horror being committed by this travesty of a cake.

WV: thflik - Mthinks thgot thflik wrong.

Nerwen Aldarion said...

Oh man! As a sci fi geek I am appalled at this cake! (And geeking out over The Princess Bride comment)

Amanda Mac said...

You are the only person I know who can combine references to GI Joe and Princess Bride and actually pull it off.

Can I use a lightsaber on that cake decorator?

Andrea K. said...

OMG!! Jen, only you could manage to mash up Star Trek, Star Wars, Princess Bride, Ghostbusters AND GIJoe!!! AMAZING!!!! I am in total awe of your writing skills!!

That cake, however, is just blasphemy!! You don't ever, EVER mix Star Trek with Star Wars! Good GRIEF!! If they love 'em both, use two separate cakes, people! TWO SEPARATE CAKES!! DO NOT CROSS THE STREAMS!!!! AUGH!!!

WV: "untso" -- Oh, say it untso!!

kms handmade said...

OMG that's totally something my friend would do and something I would have a heart attack over! Maybe it was made by the guy who showed up for the star wars convention in star trek costume! :)

Anonymous said...

LOL, love the movie references!

Perhaps the wreckerator was going for a total protonic reversal effect?

That would be bad.

Or perhaps they think by crossing the streams that they are saving the world by reversing the particle flow in the bakery?

That still would be bad.

Poor Jen & John. The cloak did belong to Miracle Max and the wheelbarrow belonged to the albino. Admit it, you're just lookin' for an excuse to watch the movie again, ain't cha? ;-D

Unfortunately for some, wreckerators can't make a cake "as you wish". It's inconceivable!

wv: diate: Diate some cake and it tasted good.

KittyKat said...

This post is relevant to my interests. :D

And yes, it is MUCH more offensive than any of the cake wrecks featured during the past week.

I like Star Wars, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, and Princess Bride, but G.I. Joe is just meh (sorry).

msyendor, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your verson of the Ghostbuster theme song.

Captcha: prheez
Next time you get a benadryl-fueled inspiration *prheez* make sure you share it with us!

Anonymous said...

I love how you manage to get so many different movies referenced in a one-cakewreck post.

*giggle* *snort*

I also have a hard time figuring out how anyone can confuse Wars and Trek. Guess I'm geekier than I thought.

Bring on the tribbles; I need some lovin' after that cake.


Fortier Business Solutions said...

Man, now I want a Princess Bride themed cake for my birthday this year.

Is this wrong? (I'm 40-something)

Nicole Leigh Shaw said...

GI Joe is "Knowing is half the battle." The More You Know is, what?, ABC, CBS, NBC feigning concern about the public good.

I love the mash-up! Especially the Ghostbusters bit. Bravo to the few who noticed the "cross the streams" part. I feel I must add:

-"Whoa, whoa, whoa! Nice icing, wrecks!"

-"That's the one. That's the wreckerator that got me."

-"Back off, man. I'm a wreckerator."

And, without alteration.

-"Tell him about the Twinkie."

WitchyMel said...


laughing my @$$ off!!

I've gone and joined the dark side of the final frontier!
Mebbe that cake should disappear?

(See the PB reference with the rhyme!? And the SW.. and ST??? right? RIGHT!??? HAHAHAH!@!!)


WV: expus - Whayn ju tayk awf de clowck (cloak) ju be expus!

Marsha said...

I love this post! We talk in scifi movie-speak all the time at home and I love it when we quote more than one movie and it makes sense - to us anyway!!! Love Cake Wrecks!!!

Anonymous said...

I am utterly offended by this post. Jen - you are no longer funny. I am no longer a fan and will no longer read your blogs or buy your books. Oh, and your yellow boots are ugly.


(Just thought I'd throw in my own 80s pop culture reference.)

Y'know I love ya!

Anonymous said...

*sigh* Now I miss "Sci-Fi Friday" and the guy who used to float around the tv screen.

DaysieD said...

That cake needs to be slimed, sliced up by a light saber and served to the Borg. Missed the GI Joe reference (saw the movie and was disappointed). I just may be watching the Princess Bride and Ghostbusters this weekend.

Anonymous said...

But I LOVE cake mash ups! It's such a challenge to see how many you can use and actually make sense. For my son's 7th birthday next week, I'm going to make a cave cake with a Horta and some Power Miners Legos. How can this POSSIBLY be wrong???

robi ayles said...

My boyfriend would get me this cake just to see me steam. I keep explaining to him that his obsessive knowledge of sports trivia and sport movie trivia is just as nerdy (geeky) as my love of the Science crossed with the Fiction but to no avail.

Cross streams? I saw the title and got all excited for a Ghostbusters cake! Apparently, I'm not the only one... but as long as we're mixing sci-fi references...

Amaia Roxanne said...

<3 love the princess bride :)
I did once make a Stargate cake with Star Wars action figures... but it was an intentional crossover. and was an awesome combination, unlike this.....

Tamea said...

OutSTANDING! I now want to make this cake for the birthdays of every uber-geek I know, just to watch them hyperventilate!

And your mash-up of pop-culture references in the original post, just makes the whole thing that much more enjoyable, so thanks for making my day!

Holy carp!!

chaitea said "The Dread Ensign Wesley" and I peed in my pants!!

I remember with fondness the t-shirt "coming next episode: Wesley gets beamed into a black hole"

I feel so at one with the Universe when I read this blog (except Sundays- never read Sundays- those posts are just creepy).

tiny purple elephant said...

lol, im a new fan to star trek and totally clueless about star wars.. but even i knew this was wrong

Arlene said...

Oooh boy. Unless the person that got this cake loves both Trek and Star Wars I bet there was a tantrum thrown lol. Maybe the wreckerator couldn't remember the order and figured both would be a good idea just in case.

Unknown said...

just. not. right.

Shalymar said...

I've never seen star wars or star trek and even I know that's completely wrong.

Anonymous said...

I assume that cake was for JJ Abrams. If you're an old school trekkie, you'll know what I mean. [sigh]

John, your Death Star comment is the best and inspiring. Here's a few of my lame attempts:

Life is pain, Highness! Anyone who says differently is selling a wrecked cake.

Do you hear that Fezzik? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when the six-fingered man decorated a cake and didn't know the difference between Star Wars and Star Trek.

There's a shortage of perfect cakes in this world. It would be a pity to wreck yours.

WV: sychawas. I haven't been to Disneyland sychawas seven.

If I may add my own Ghostbusters geekiness:

Gozer: Are you a WRECKERATOR?

(Pause. Stantz looks over at Venkman, then looks back at Gozer.)

Stantz: No.

Gozer: Then, DIE!

(No, that wouldn't be good. Then Cake Wrecks would be out of work!)

orit schatzman said...

I ordered a cake from a bakery for the specific reason that they could take digital photos and print them onto cakes with edible ink - I SWEAR this was NOT my idea, I just got manipulated into ordering the thing because the fool throwing the party didn't know how to send photos. The whole concept seemed unappetizing and toxic to me!
