Did you know there's a direct correlation between declining supplies of Spirograph pancakes and a rise in gang activity?

There is still Spirograph, but it's no where near what it once was.  It's a sad, shameful imitation.

He needs to lower the heat so the first bit doesn't burn.

Meh.  My Lite Brite Waffles are better.

Quit playing with your food.

I'll stick with Norwegian Rosettes.  All the geometric beauty with none of the burnt bits.  That pancake looked like it was cajun blackened breakfast, no thanks.

Combine it with a SWITL (YouTube) and you could lay out your design and cook it on a proper griddle.

Yes, subby, we have all seen your mom naked.

I'm familiar with the crap they were selling in recent years - oversized with simple patterns - but last Christmas the original style one came back.

And cutting into these pancakes almost feels like defiling a masterpiece, would you pour maple syrup on the Mona Lisa?

Would it taste as good as pancakes? Then yes. Yes I would.

Mmmm.. burned pancakes.

Drop those stupid micro-pins in the shag carpet and you'll be pulling them out of your feet for weeks.

Idea:  instead of drawing directly on the griddle, you draw on a sheet of cardboard or waxed paper and freeze the pancake before cooking. Then you can just slide the finished design off onto the hot pan. No more burnt pancake art.

Did you know that the orbits of the planets as seen from Earth form wonderful spirograph type patterns? Although they might be elipses seen from a stationary point, the Earth itself is moving and this shifts each turn around the Sun a bit.

Venus draws out a lovely five-petaled rose window, while Mercury draws what looks like a bicycle tire. And so each planet's orbit looks different if traced as seen from each other planet.
