I am glad those pancakes didn't have that umbrella when they were getting doused with that maple syrup. I'm just sayin'.

I tells ya, sometimes these posts are awfully hard.

I had the umbrella above the pancakes first. Because my unconnected images are always vertically arranged, having an umbrella on the top creates an association that whatever is below is being protected by the umbrella.

So, I tried switching it around, having the pancakes above. But, the pancakes were dripping syrup, so there's another association, in that the umbrella is shielding someone from the syrup.

At that point, I gave up and posted the damn thing the original way I had intended.

Goddamn verticality!

I think that you may be over thinking this whole thing a wee bit...

Dr Z, these unconnected posts are the only things keeping the robotic spiders from crawling into my brain.

yes, that whole umbrella/dripping syrup issue is sticky.

i took some of the p0nklets to Denny's just last night for dinner and 3 of them had pancakes. I swear to GOD! and somebody had left an umbrella in our booth...ok i made that last part up.

I'll be snorting for days over that.

Please don't hate me, but the first thing I thought when I saw the umbrella and the stack of pancakes was the old children's book "The Story of Little Black Sambo"
