“It’s like somebody saying, ‘We’re going to ban waffle irons,’ and you don’t even want a waffle iron, but you go out and buy three of them. The best thing for gun sales has been the Obama administration. It’s reverse logic.” – CRT Capital analyst Brian Ruttenbur in Guns are back, thanks to women [at fortune.com]
Home Quote of the Day Quote of the Day: Mmmmmm, Waffles
I just ordered a waffle iron on amazon, because I believe this guy has inside information on the administrations next move.
Get em before the ban does!!!!!
Buy all the waffle irons you want, they’ll just ban waffle mix. /sarc/
then they’ll ban eggs, flour , milk and baking soda….MMMMMM I’m hungry now
That’s correct – and anyone with these ingredients has “intent” – time to rack up some class D felonies!
They will make excellent targets for all that m855 you are hoarding 😉
There was a run on pressure cookers after Boston.
Have to admit, I didn’t even know at that time that pressure cookers were even still a thing. I thought they were an obsolete appliance from 85 years ago, like actual, literal ice boxes prior to the proliferation of refrigerators.
Yeah they’re still a thing, you just need an NFA tax stamp to get one. 🙂
They’re sort of back. I have several, and use them all the time. The modern ones are much safer and easier to use.
It’s the opposite of reverse logic……..wait a second.
Damnit. Now I want waffles.
Glad I’m not the only one. :0
Well, I already have a pre-ban waffle iron without a limiter- so I’m makin’ waffles!!
You’re the grsteaet! JMHO
Yeah, that’s the ticket, sir or ma’am
If you’re looking to buy these articles make it way easier.
So that’s the case? Quite a revelation that is.
I’m shocked that I found this info so easily.
Next there will be a run on maple syrup! Quick to the market for syrup! Because when they can’t ban the waffles they will go after the much needed syrup, even if you could use it on the evil pancakes, it doesn’t matter ban all syrup and nobody will want waffles (or hotcakes).
Maple syrup > pancake syrup.
“Pancake syrup” is shit.
I wish I could still find boysenberry, but it’s probably gone since it doesn’t have a clear “sporting purpose”.
Banning maple syrup is just back door waffle control. We’re not fooled.
I had two waffle makers, one for primary, other for backup. Unfortunately both were lost in a boating accident
Secondary, psst. I have an octonary waffle iron… Do you even culinary?
Octonary! Just do you NEED that many for?!?!? Culinary Arsenals such as yours need to be banned at once!
Come and cake them!
Culinary operator over here.
I am waffling on this. I think the intention is of this ban is high capacity waffle makers, military grade with teflon finish. You can have a singe waffle maker that makes a one in three minutes and then requires a fork to remove it from the maker. Read: fixed magazine.
I have waffle irons but I can’t find the mix to make the batter. They are useless to me. Why is the government buying it all up?
I started with a single stage waffle mix maker. Now I have a progressive waffle mixer. It is so much easier.
Heck, I can make a thousand waffles in one morning!
Oh yeah? The government has 30 inch waffle magazine clips that make 200 waffles in a second, and a shoulder thingy that goes up! Look at this baby!!!! (totally LMAO)
Dads Demand Action for Waffle-Sense.
Actually, I know people who have bought ARs because DiFi and her gang wanted to ban them.
And I’ve already seen people try to sell them for what they paid for them right after sandy hook. “Lnib” whatever dude, your $600 bushmaster is not worth $2000.
I assume that is intended as snark/joke. Why do DiFi and the iibtards WANT to ban AR15 (and any/all firearms)? And that alone is sufficient reason to justify ownership. Whatever it takes for a wakeup.
The AWB in the 90’s is the exact thing that got me started in the AR world. Up until then I had no interest whatsoever in an AR. Then the DiFi/Boxer crowd convinced me I had better get one and I’ve had a blast ever since. Thanks DiFi!
I think I am more worried about his derogatory comment about women.
And I was gonna buy Shannon a waffle iron as a “bury the hatchet” gift. Hmmm
Are you sure you don’t just want her to make you breakfast in the morning?
that presupposes I stay overnight for breakfast. . . . not my speed with the Summer League team 🙂
Maybe she’d give it a rest if she had a good “Dirking”
If by “reverse logic” the guy means “a clear cut demonstration of how American Citizens feel about their Right to Keep and Bear Arms” well then I’d have to agree.
FOR THE CHILDREN… hood… diabetes… sort of thing
Here I thought I was being covert with my French Toast.
Damnit Man! Oh the humanity!!!
My decision to buy was hurried along by Maryland’s laws.
My waffle iron has the shoulder thing that goes up.
Mine flips over AND has the thing that goes up. And blinky lights and an auditory signal to indicate the waffles are done, thereby supporting high capacity waffle making.
Speaking of waffles, why are there no Waffle Houses north of Kansas City?
I already have a waffle iron, but I think I’ll pick up another just in case mine breaks.
I think part of it is that you don’t want something until you see it. You might be happy with your car but when you take it in for service and browse the new models while you wait you decide you want the new one. BO put bodies in gun shops and on gun websites and people have been looking around thinking ‘wow, that’s pretty cool’. But unlike cars, most people can afford several guns. We might only NEED one gun, but we want one of everything.
I happen to live about 15 miles from the American Maple Museum. I could eat maple cotton candy until I throw up.
On November 1, 2012 I did not own a firearm. I now own…..more than one.
I have a pre-ban waffle iron with Belgian proof marks. The bidding starts at $1,000.
A Herstal, Belgium waffle iron?
Did you know anyone can make a “ghost waffle” iron with no serial no. and no testing required by UL?
Quick! Ban ghost waffles! For the children!
In order to make a waffle iron ban truly work the .gov will have to ban fire and electricity. Buying bootleg fire out of the trunk of a car is problematic.
I’m the Hamburglar and I buy all my Waffle Makers on the black market. No ban is going to stop the Hamburglar!
80% waffle makers is where it’s at.
I prefer pecan waffles. The wife makes them for me because I’m one of those horrible massage-o-gynst and repress my wife with undying devotion and love.
That might be part of it but a huge part is the feeling (probably misplaced) that it’s getting more dangerous and the law won’t protect you. Not a day goes by where we see twisted justice on TV. Despite facts supporting a decrease in crime no one wants to be caught in the open without a piece.
I just wish ammo would be cheap again so I could actually go casual target shooting again on a regular basis. I already gave up trap shooting because the ammo costs too much.
Sounds like a reason to get into reloading.
Right? This constant cycle of panic is just unbearable. We got a a couple months of half way decent ammo prices then BAM PANIC HORDE MODE MAX ATF BAN BAN BAN. And now all ammo prices are going back up now. I have a huge stockpile of ammo, but when a panic hits I don’t want to shoot any.
I modded mine to make grilled cheese sandwiches! I’ll be posting an do-it-yourself with tools found in your home for all the survivalists.
Nobody should be allowed to own a waffle iron without first passing a basic cooking course, and registering with the state. The iron should be stored in a locked contaner when not in use, with the batter stored seperately.
This is one of the funniest posts I have read in a long time. You guys must have had eggs with your waffles this morning, and LOTS of syrup! Makes me want to start the day all over.
You can have my waffle iron when you pry my cold dead fingers from it. Or as PotWI like to say ” Let go of my Ego.”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the right to keep and bear arms is embedded in our Constitution, while the right to make waffles is not so much. So when we hear that our government seeks to infringe upon our rights, yeah, we get a little testy and we stock up. But I don’t see a run on waffle irons any time soon, even if Mooch agitates for a ban.
Only a total doofus would conflate the right to keep and bear arms with the right to carb-up.
Not sure about that, I can easily see this administration taxing the hell out of sugar.
Fighting obesity, and all…
Hey you took my description Ralph…how ’bout maroon?
Pancakes are really just waffles without the stippling, so they really need ban skillets too!
Not a word about the insidious crepes smuggling market.
Actually, it’s like saying “We’re going to ban disinfectant,” so people rush to buy as much as they can because if they happened to get cut in the future, they don’t want to die of gangrene.
Nice try, making the tradition of freedom akin to a stupid appliance.
While thinking positively will not work to cure depression once it
has hit, it may help you to prevent the condition in the first place if you suffer from dysthymia.
And stress may cause physical symptoms: head aches, muscle aches, back aches.
You often have trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things.
