Today on the tray: Waffles

wafflesAugust 24 is National Waffle Day.  On this day in 1869, a man named Cornelius Swartwout received the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron.

I love National Waffle Day! Or maybe I don’t. Oh, I guess I do. I go back and forth. (Ha ha, I make that same joke about waffling every year.)

One thing I’m quite decided about: You better le’ggo my Eggo.

“Le’ggo My Eggo” commercial (1972)

What a selfish, ungrateful kid. And what a bad, manipulative father. The father, by the way, is played by Gordon Jump of WKRP in Cincinnati.
