“He gave her a look you could have poured over a waffle.” – Ring Lardner

Comic panel that uses a quote about the look you can pour over a waffle.

They make molasses from sugar cane, and rum from distilled molasses. Molasses is the “brown” in brown sugar and it’s used a lot in baking and cooking. People used to pour it on their pancakes and waffles before maple syrup was created / discovered. Some people still do.

It’s an acquired taste and molasses typically pours really slow because of its high viscosity. Especially, in wintertime!

If there was a look to properly respond to the mouth of babbling and annoyance, it might be the look you could pour over a waffle — in wintertime.

Cheers ~
