“Bought a high definition dessert today. It was a creme Blu-ray”

"Crème brûlée” is a rich custard dessert. “Blu-ray” is a digital optical disc data storage format. The two sometimes get confused.

“This dessert is much better in high-def. Mmmmm creme blu-ray” was posted on Twitter on March 17, 2010. “What cake is in high definition? Creme blu-ray” was posted on Twitter on September 28, 2011. “Dad quote of the century: ‘creme blu-ray’” was posted on Twitter on June 7, 2013.

Wikipedia: Crème brûlée
Crème brûlée (/ˌkrɛm bruːˈleɪ/; French pronunciation: ​[kʁɛm bʁy.le]), also known as burnt cream or Trinity cream, is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a contrasting layer of hard caramel. It is normally served at room temperature. The custard base is traditionally flavored with vanilla, but can have a variety of other flavorings.

Wikipedia: Blu-ray
Blu-ray or Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a digital optical disc data storage format. It was designed to supersede the DVD format, and is capable of storing several hours of video in high-definition (HDTV 720p and 1080p) and ultra high-definition resolution (2160p). The main application of Blu-ray is as a medium for video material such as feature films and for the physical distribution of video games for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The name “Blu-ray” refers to the blue laser (actually a violet laser) used to read the disc, which allows information to be stored at a greater density than is possible with the longer-wavelength red laser used for DVDs.

I wonder how long Mum’s pronounced Creme Brûlée as “Creme Blu-Ray”. Certainly no earlier than 2006, the launch of the high density format.
