Quote of the Day: Mmmmmm, Waffles


“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]

    I just ordered a waffle iron on amazon, because I believe this guy has inside information on the administrations next move.

    1. avatar AllAmerican says:

      Get em before the ban does!!!!!

    2. avatar DickDanger says:

      Buy all the waffle irons you want, they’ll just ban waffle mix. /sarc/

      1. avatar ready,fire,aim says:

        then they’ll ban eggs, flour , milk and baking soda….MMMMMM I’m hungry now

        1. avatar Anonymous says:

          That’s correct – and anyone with these ingredients has “intent” – time to rack up some class D felonies!

    3. avatar Tex300BLK says:

      They will make excellent targets for all that m855 you are hoarding 😉

    4. avatar RandallOfLegend says:

      There was a run on pressure cookers after Boston.

      1. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

        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.

        1. avatar AllAmerican says:

          Yeah they’re still a thing, you just need an NFA tax stamp to get one. 🙂

        2. avatar juliesa says:

          They’re sort of back. I have several, and use them all the time. The modern ones are much safer and easier to use.

  2. avatar Ddub says:

    It’s the opposite of reverse logic……..wait a second.

  3. avatar Timmy says:

    Damnit. Now I want waffles.

    1. avatar gloomhound says:

      Glad I’m not the only one. :0

    2. avatar styrgwillidar says:

      Well, I already have a pre-ban waffle iron without a limiter- so I’m makin’ waffles!!

    3. avatar Dell says:

      You’re the grsteaet! JMHO

    4. Yeah, that’s the ticket, sir or ma’am

    5. If you’re looking to buy these articles make it way easier.

    6. So that’s the case? Quite a revelation that is.

  4. avatar DaveinLA says:

    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).

    1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

      Maple syrup > pancake syrup.

      Just saying.

      1. avatar Wood says:

        +1 mil

        “Pancake syrup” is shit.

        1. avatar 33AD says:

          I wish I could still find boysenberry, but it’s probably gone since it doesn’t have a clear “sporting purpose”.

    2. avatar Rad Man says:

      Banning maple syrup is just back door waffle control. We’re not fooled.

  5. avatar TX Gungal says:

    I had two waffle makers, one for primary, other for backup. Unfortunately both were lost in a boating accident

    1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

      Secondary, psst. I have an octonary waffle iron… Do you even culinary?

      1. avatar AllAmerican says:

        Octonary! Just do you NEED that many for?!?!? Culinary Arsenals such as yours need to be banned at once!

        1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

          Come and cake them!

      2. avatar Scrubula says:

        Culinary operator over here.

  6. avatar Carl says:

    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.

  7. avatar Ken says:

    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?

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      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!

      1. avatar bontai Joe says:

        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)

  8. avatar ToddR says:

    Dads Demand Action for Waffle-Sense.

  9. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    Actually, I know people who have bought ARs because DiFi and her gang wanted to ban them.

    1. avatar Escaped from Illinois says:

      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.

    2. avatar neiowa says:

      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.

    3. avatar Chuck in IL says:

      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!

  10. avatar A-Rod says:

    I think I am more worried about his derogatory comment about women.

  11. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

    And I was gonna buy Shannon a waffle iron as a “bury the hatchet” gift. Hmmm

    1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

      Are you sure you don’t just want her to make you breakfast in the morning?

      1. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

        that presupposes I stay overnight for breakfast. . . . not my speed with the Summer League team 🙂

        1. avatar Chrispy says:

          Maybe she’d give it a rest if she had a good “Dirking”

  12. avatar Dale says:

    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.

  13. avatar Timmy! says:

    FOR THE CHILDREN… hood… diabetes… sort of thing

  14. avatar Tom W. says:

    Here I thought I was being covert with my French Toast.
    Damnit Man! Oh the humanity!!!

  15. avatar Dave says:

    My decision to buy was hurried along by Maryland’s laws.

  16. avatar Jim says:

    My waffle iron has the shoulder thing that goes up.

    1. avatar Wood says:

      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.

  17. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    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.

  18. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    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.

  19. avatar 7.62x54r says:

    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.

  20. avatar racer88 says:

    I have a pre-ban waffle iron with Belgian proof marks. The bidding starts at $1,000.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      A Herstal, Belgium waffle iron?


  21. avatar John L. says:

    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!

  22. avatar JWM says:

    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.

  23. avatar Hamburglar says:

    I’m the Hamburglar and I buy all my Waffle Makers on the black market. No ban is going to stop the Hamburglar!

  24. avatar Bob says:

    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.

  25. avatar GS650G says:

    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.

    1. avatar John L. says:

      Sounds like a reason to get into reloading.

    2. avatar AllAmerican says:

      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.

  26. avatar James69 says:

    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.

  27. avatar Pulatso says:

    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.

  28. avatar Mark N. says:

    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.

  29. avatar Rikoshay says:

    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.”

  30. avatar Ralph says:

    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.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Not sure about that, I can easily see this administration taxing the hell out of sugar.

      Fighting obesity, and all…

  31. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Hey you took my description Ralph…how ’bout maroon?

  32. avatar JohnF says:

    Pancakes are really just waffles without the stippling, so they really need ban skillets too!

  33. avatar Alan Longnecker says:

    Not a word about the insidious crepes smuggling market.

  34. avatar Silver says:

    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.

  35. 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.
