Waffle Stomp

Remember those Timberlands that we used to wear when it used to snow? Well the hipsters, and I, call them Waffle Stompers because of the funny waffle-iron tread on the soles.

I was going to show you the video of the song ("Waffle Stomp") that Joe Walsh did for the movie, but YouTube deleted it. I can share with you that Joe had the following suggestions for persons looking for something to do...

Have doughnuts and coffee
With Colonel Khadafi
Write a new novel
That's perfectly awful
Buy some new work boots
Stomp on a waffle or two

Now, there is something to add to the list of things to do.  This is not the time of year to be stomping around in work boots.

But you can move to Fresno, California, Omaha, Nebraska, or Chattanooga, Tennessee and enjoy the new Taco Bell Breakfast Waffle Taco.   The taco features a waffle taco shell stuffed with a breakfast sausage patty and scrambled eggs, as pictured here.  It's being test-marketed in those three notably epicurean cities.

There has been a trend in this nation of developing new carbohydrate sources from old.  Hence the pancakes used as sandwich bookends at McDonald's, and the Krispy Kreme sugar bomb employed as a hamburger bun.  And the new Ramen burger, using mashed up noodles as top and bottom between a patty.

I'd love to hear from the nutritionists and dieticians among us as to where all this might lead.  Just because three food items  - a waffle, a sausage patty and a scrambled egg - are tasty does not mean that they have to be put together.

Next up, Pizza Hut will bring out the Maple Syrup and Grit pizza.  Just watch!
