Waffles are just a vehicle for butter and syrup

Alert! Alert! There’s a national waffle shortage!!!! Yes, Kellogg’s warns that the Eggo waffle supply will be greatly depleted until next summer. NO WAFFLES?


Whatever shall we do? The beloved yellow boxes are flying off the shelves! Old Mother Hubbard will have nothing to feed her starving baybees!!!

But you shouldn’t have a toaster in your dorm room anyway for the Eggo’s, so just suck it up and go down to the cafeteria like we all had to. Your meal plan is 100% better than my was, so quit yer bitchin).

Sirup? You’re on your own.
