I agree... I'm not saying they aren't waffles... but honestly, I've never seen any waffles like that! Waffles usually have gigantic annoying caverns, not little puddle holes. And who has ever heard of a stack of waffles?
If we want to get technical, I'm pretty sure that Parks & Rec photo is a CAKE. So they aren't actually waffles, but a CAKE.
I LOVE CAKE.
Correct, that is indeed a cake. One which was clearly made in a pan.
Look at them - they just seem so pathetic. They're desperately trying to hide their true pancake nature - and in the process, they've destroyed everything that ever made them worthwhile. In fact, I'm not even totally sure if that's even food anymore. It looks much more like a cardboard A/C filter.
And really? You call those syrup traps? Puh-lease. If waffles were bras, them eensy li'l pockets would be a nearly A-cup training bra.
"When music affects us to tears, seemingly causeless, we weep not... from excess of pleasure; but through excess of an impatient, petulant sorrow that, as mere mortals, we are as yet in no condition to banquet upon those supernal ecstasies of which the music affords us merely a suggestive and indefinite glimpse."
