Pancakes #6: Take the Pancake Quiz

Let's see how well you've been boning up on your pancake detection skills.  If you need a refresher, I encourage you to study previous pancake posts.  But, if you think you're up to to the challenge, I would recommend you give it your best shot.

So, how'd you do?


  1. 100%, pass me the maple syrup

  2. I thought some had some ambiguity.
    Anyone else not able to help noticing the spots on no.5's left leg?

    1. I'd like to think those spots are on the page, not the person. Although, with pancake pictures you can never be too sure - these gals have no doubt seen their share of rashes, infections, and STDs.

  3. Ha-larious

  4. I dunno about #1, they look like a couple in search of some fringed jacquard throw pillows with matching wall tapestry.

  5. I thought with #1 that one guy was in the pancakes zone but the other seemed genuinely interested in the coffee table...until I noticed what he was doing with his hands.

    #2. I don't care how sexy she is dressed, there's no danger of pancakes here: No eye contact, a look of disinterest on her part and he genuinely seems interested in the document more than her.

    ...and Fred Gwynne you old devil!

  6. I'll go along with all but #3. We can't tell what Mr Violet-Pants wants because we only see his knees, but the other three people simply don't want to be there. The next thing that happens will be a contagious yawn followed by a round of handshakes and fake regrets.

  7. Not sure about #2...would the lady really share pancakes with this particular guy? I for one hope not.

    #5 is MAJORLY HOT, I want a date with her on New Years...
