Flapjacks.

pancakes-8522

Pancakes with syrup tend to have vicious natures. Their behavior is at once cowardly and sly, and they have no understanding of deeper things. They often weep (and everyone knows there is nothing worse than a weeping pancake), and as soon as you turn your back they cackle maliciously. They also play many unexpected pranks that often ruffle one’s serenity.

This is one of the best paragraphs of fiction I’ve ever read.
It’s from one of my favorite stories called The War with Things.

    That paragraph sounds like something Douglas Adams would say in one of his stories. Also, your pancakes are severely lacking in their syrup content. I suppose it makes for a better picture without looking like a gooey mess.
