My Pancake Fetish Rears Its Ugly Head

Hi, My name is Chuck and I have a Pancake Fetish.

Hi, Chuck!

I’ve eaten pancakes all my life, for breakfast, for brunch, and for that most decadent pancake delight, the all-too-rare “breakfast for supper.”  Buttermilk pancakes, whole-wheat pancakes, corn-meal pancakes, buckwheat pancakes…fat pancakes, thin pancakes, pancakes with blueberries, 10 grains, 7 grains, strawberries on top, millet pancakes, even potato pancakes.  I’ve idealized the pancakes of my youth and spend an inordinate portion of my life trying to re-discover that soft-focused flapjack bliss.  I’m largely (proudly) responsible for this:

Keeping that in mind, you must understand why I was utterly devastated when this picture was brought to my attention, just 5 days too late to post for Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day!).  The word “forlorn” comes to mind, followed closely by “heartbroken” and “shattered.”  Nevertheless:


I’m not an advocate of LSD–nor a passionate critic, when it comes down to it–but this has had me chortling all day.  I assume it’s clear why I couldn’t wait another 360 days until next year’s Shrove Tuesday to post it?


About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

  1. I could not help myself, I busted out laughing as soon as I saw the caption. Although I am a french toast fanatic, I love my pancakes too (please don’t smoosh the fluffy out). Thanks for the gut buster.
