Pancake Cone Anyone?

I like taking people at their word and figuring out how they have made less of a mistake. On this one, they have quite obviously started ironing the waffles to take out the pleats. I hope the customers don't mind.

    Oh man,

    My hands seriously hit the floor just now, Daniel, in synchrony with a most effervescing, "haaaa."

    That was wonderful. What a lovely, lively ending to my day.

    Where did you find such a prize?

    Nice pic!

    Blogger won't let me leave comments as who I really am. This is my third try. Not that I have anything interesting to say, but now I'm annoyed.

    I just myspaced the following quote to a friend and thought it might delight you as well. It's from Erasmus' Praise of Folly. It regards schoolmasters:

    "Then there's this further type of pleasure. Whenever one of them [the schoolmasters] digs out of some mouldy manuscript the name of Anchises' mother or some trivial word the ordinary man doesn't know, such as neatherd, tergiversator, cutpurse, or if anyone unearths a scrap of old stone with a fragmentary inscription, O Jupiter, what a triumph! What rejoicing, what eulogies! They might have conquered Africa or captured Babylon."

    Isn't that hilarious? Ah, and what reverberation it finds within my little heart. O Jupiter, indeed.

    Tergiversate's a fun one. I think it might have been a word-of-the-day once, but I'd let it fall to the wayside.
