Mmmm, pancakes

February 12 2008

I almost missed it - today was National Pancake Day here in the US.  At some point around lunch-time here in Chicago, Nathan Freeman tried to convince me that I needed to head to IHOP for a free "short stack". Nathan used a sales pitch that sounded very familiar to me.  I was saved by my competitive instinct -- sometimes, it is better to pay for a superior product that meets ones' needs, even if it is not ubiquitous or "free" (though I applaud IHOP's charitable objectives today -- not usually the case when I see someone offer something for free :-) ).
