    As the unofficial spokesman of Fred's House of Pancakes, I'd like to welcome you all here. I know some of you have been visiting for a while, and some of you may be newer, or have just discovered this place. Well, in order for Fred's House of Pancakes to continue to be a successful and happy environment, I figured it was time for the unofficial spokesman to be, well, a spokesman.

    Here at Fred's House of Pancakes, we accept all, regardless of age, race, gender, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, party affiliation, height, or elven characteristics. Of course, you know, that means there will be plenty of people not like yourself, and you're expected to get along with them, or else you'll have to get along with the bouncers.

    Oh yes, the bouncers. Let me introduce them all, as they help keep order around here. First, a well known figure, TonyPSchaefer. Tony is known around here, as he was a very active customer even before he became a bouncer. It is a little known fact that the "P" stands for "Piss him off and there will be all hell to pay." A citizen of the Chicagoland area, he has a penchant for high efficiency and aversion of long drives.

    Another well known figure is efusco. The doc, as some know him, is also responsible for keeping order. He is a significant contributor to the various conversations that occur in FHOP and elsewhere, and is valued for his input. He brings a little bit of Missouri good ol' home cooking to FHOP.

    That brings me to Tag. You can never accuse him of doggin' it, he's also very valued around here. Like Tony, he is also from Chicagoland, and chips in often with his helpful knowledge and insight. We here at FHOP respect him, and hope others can get along with his friendly demeanor.

    Unfortunately, Wolfman just retired as a bouncer. It is a shame, because if you want a bouncer, Wolfman is a perfect name for him. We wish him luck in his future endeavors, and hold out hope that one day, he'll be back.

    Of course now, I can't leave out the owner, Danny. Peculiarly enough, he started up this joint, yet no one's even seen him eat a pancake, although he says he likes them, and he will eat one in the future. I know we'll all cheer that one day he gets his Prius.... I mean pancake.

    Some may wonder who Fred is. Fred, a shy fellow, is a reluctant figurehead for the joint. Someone may have to coax him out in the future.

    Going back to getting along: indeed, it may be difficult, but for the bouncers' sake and your own sanity, it would be much appreciated. Here at FHOP, we know that if we see a flaming pancake, you're not going to put it out by blowing hot air at it; instead, break out the Aunt Jemima's and smother it with maple sugary goodness.

    I hope everyone enjoys the pancakes we have to offer, and that we can all get along to continue FHOP's rich tradition.

    I'm just glad that I have the ip lookup feature to find out who the "unofficial" FHOP spokesman really is.

    Nice intro to FHOP - might have to pin this one.

    NOOOOO! Tell me it's not so! :angry:

    Please tell me you aren't serving Aunt Jemima's in your FHOP franchise.

    Up there in New Brunswick you have access to all that wonderfully delicious, 100% pure, New Brunswick maple syrup and you are serving Aunt Jemima's??? :rolleyes:

    Don't worry SPE, it's just a figure of speech, due to a well known corporation's identity. We wouldn't use Aunt Jemima's just like we wouldn't drive a GM vehicle.

    I'm betting a a whole bag of irony that Fred is Mystery Squid, and if it is not squid, the mere attribution of this to him will surely pucker Fred's sphincter and coax out the author...

    I didn't think anything I posted was sarcastic. Just humourous.

    The fact that people think it is MS scares me. Do you really think he'd be clever enough to pull this off? Plus, I'm not baiting anyone.

    How about you start a poll and we vote on who we think you really are? Make sure you include yourself.

    My guess would be TonyPSchaefer, based mostly on the descriptions of the "bouncers" in the first message and on Danny's response in this thread.

    Not Tony, I think you're reading too much into stuff. Nice try though.

    I'm not making a poll, just because I think I'm under the radar on this one. If anyone wants to throw out twenty names (I think they only allow 20 answers on a poll) and I'm on there, I'll put it as a poll.

    Could this be a "dare"?

    :D

    Now, what if I were to *suggest*, there actually aren't any regulars on FHOP except for galaxee and salsawonder?

    Dare? No. Playing to the crowd, so to speak. And no on your list. Although I think there are many more that can be considered regulars, non?
