    1. I’m only bothered if you attempt to make it taste like tasteless/graceless/faceless industrial product.  To me, this is a subterfuge of expectations in order to point out how bland the industrial food can be.

      1. My heart just stopped looking at that.  I think Henry’s point is that chocolate syrup covered chocolate cakey-slabs are not quite anyone’s definition of “pancake”.

        1. Nor does that qualify as a Hostess Cupcake.  I like pancakes, and I like Hostess Cupcakes as much as any child of the 70s who rebelled against his great aunt’s “healthy alternative” carob creations, but this

          I was a fan of anything and everything chocolate until a fateful April morning in 1980 when ten-year-old Donnie and his family visited Aunt Emma’s Pancakes next to the Fabulous 7 Motel in equally fabulous El Cajon, CA.  I discovered they had chocolate pancakes, with chocolate chips!  I enthusiastically ordered a stack, drowned it in maple syrup, ate about six bites, then gave up, swearing off chocolate of all types for the next week or more.  I eventually got over it, but I’ve never forgotten how nauseatingly rich and overwhelmingly chocolatey those pancakes were.  My gorge slightly rises just thinking about it, and since I just finished off a Six Dollar Memphis BBQ Burger from Carl’s Jr, I can’t afford that thought at all right now.

          Can’t look again at the picture above, either.
