+1 for functionality: waffle keyboard has more functionality than some software I have used. –  IAbstract Mar 25 '10 at 11:58

-1 because I prefer Pancakes to Waffles. –  perbert Mar 25 '10 at 12:52

meta, thy name is consistency. now that we've got that out of the way, we now return you to your regularly scheduled conspiracy theories. –  tvanfosson Mar 25 '10 at 16:25
    
Since when is a discussion about waffles off topic for meta? I call shenanigans! –  user27414 Mar 25 '10 at 16:49
    
I believe you have to somehow make a connection between SO and waffles @jon –  jmfsg Mar 25 '10 at 18:22
    
@Downvoter -- it's meme (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/19478/the-many-memes-of-meta/…). Once it's meme, you don't need to make an explicit connection, you just need to present it in all it's buttery goodness. –  tvanfosson Mar 26 '10 at 1:34

You know what trips me up?

The Waffle House doesn't sell Pancakes.

The International House of Pancakes does, however, sell Waffles. alt text

There are various lesser Pancake houses, and they do not sell waffles.

It's because IHOP is the "International" House of Pancakes. And in some countries, they call their pancakes waffels. –  random Mar 25 '10 at 12:34

@random - Sounds like they are waffling. They should just choose one name and stick with it. –  Adam Davis Mar 25 '10 at 12:58

Since when do they spell Affle House with a 'W'? –  user27414 Mar 25 '10 at 13:33
    
The Waffle House technically doesn't sell waffles, either. At least I'm pretty sure they don't. Nobody has ever eaten one there and lived to tell about it. –  Aarobot Mar 25 '10 at 14:23
    
The Waffle House doesn't sell waffles, they sell mounds of grease that only drunk people are willing to eat after the bars close and nowhere else is open. Being so drunk, they are unable to remember exactly what they ate, so they just assume it was waffles. –  gnostradamus Mar 25 '10 at 16:21

It's 17174 day! –  perbert Mar 25 '10 at 13:33
    
Unless I'm mistaken, no one said it was waffles day. –  mmyers Mar 25 '10 at 18:55

Tonight I'll be having waffles, whipped cream and jam. I'm looking forward to this.

Illustrating the thin limit between "weird/funny answer" and "I end up telling something dull". –  Gnoupi Mar 25 '10 at 13:55

I assume you mean waffles the food, and not waffles the user, because that would be TMI. –  Adam Davis Mar 25 '10 at 15:31
    
unfortunately I was out of cream. :C –  Spoike Mar 26 '10 at 9:20
