Something Went Down At The Rockford IHOP And We Can’t Figure It Out
Just when you thought our fair city had enough weirdness for days, something like this happens.
This picture taken today just outside of the IHOP at 6960 Argus Road, shows a car covered in pancakes.
When I explained the photo to Midday Michelle, she thought I was talking about a special IHOP car littered with pancake sticker details. Not sure if that's a real thing but IHOP, get on it.
Someone plastering pancakes all over a car's windshield is all sorts of awesome. Unless you plan to drive with said pancakes all over your windshield. That's not awesome, but actually kind of dangerous.
Anyway, as I spent far more time than I needed to staring at the picture in question, my brain started to formulate theories to explain the reason for the pancakes on the windshield.
- A disgruntled employee quit, then proceeded to throw pancakes on the manager's car before they left.
- A disgruntled waitstaff member threw pancakes on a customers car because they had to keep going back to get new ones because those weren't "cooked right."
- A couple broke up at IHOP and the breaker upper got their car dowsed in pancakes because of it.
- Somebody ran out of bologna and decided to use pancakes to cover someone's window.
- It's a prank.
I sure hope it's not the last one, the prank. Fingers crossed it's the break-up couple. There may be no better revenge than tossing a bunch of pancakes on the windshield of your exes windshield.
