Luchalma Lingo: Piece of Cake Son

Piece of Cake Son

To attempt a jump in a video game, only to fall instantly.

"I hope I don't Piece of Cake Son this jump."
"Damn it I Piece of Cake Son'd it."


In an old episode of the Simpsons, Treehouse of Horror VI to be exact, Homer got himself stuck in an alternate 3D dimension. As it started to collapse into a black hole of sorts, Homer needed to jump over the pit.  He not only didn't make the jump, he didn't really jump at all. He just sort of walked into the vortex. You can see this here:

This seems to happen to me a lot in games. I'll be running toward the edge of a platform, and I'll press the jump button, but instead of jumping at all I just fall. This is always bullshit.

But also, I always know it's sort of my fault. And that's double bullshit.


  1. same thing happens in fighting games...


  2. "But I SWEAR I pushed the jump button!"
    Well at least now I can call it something.

  3. "Here is an ordinary square"

    "Whoa, whoa, slow down!"
