Pancakes - You have until Saturday, May 19, to make an ugly one.

I've always felt this void in my life, like something was missing yet I could never pinpoint what it was. I've now realized it's because I've never experienced the joy of eating pancakes that look like dinosaurs!

My pancakes look like dark matter.

But they're beautiful.

Those pancakes are something, but they are not ugly. I have been making ugly pancakes since way before the deadline, but they were ugly so ate them instead of posting them on the internet.

This website is great

I'm confused. These pancakes look delicious and creative. They don't look ugly whatsoever.

I thought the most ugly pancake would be someone's failed attempt to have a perfect circle pancake. No, I'm not talking about the band.

But, what I am talking about is a group of people that could have united over consistently failing to make nice, round, simple pancakes.

I can do other things in the kitchen, but ask me to make a pancake and you'll get a blob with a side of maple syrup instead (maple syrup because well, I'm canadian and you know what they say).

I believe the request is for you to make ugly pancakes, to fill out the gallery for Ugly Week and have your own pancake credit on saipancakes. The other posts are from other, not-Ugly, Weeks.

Saipancake was the linchpin of Japancake's inner defensive perimiter during the war... this line of puns isn't going anywhere good.

Yeah, after reading it and not just looking at the delicious pictures that seems to be the case. I think my ugly pancakes would qualify for this pancake competition. I swear, I'm not a bad cook but when it comes to making pancakes, well, I fail miserably.

Why aren't any of these perfect pancakes being placed upon the heads of rabbits?

Hah! One of the ways Mrs. Graygorey teases her eldest sister is by calling her the "first pancake."

A chicken is a dinosaur.

That makes my day.

"Ugly" seems to be the only way I can manage to make pancakes.

I just realized I have a picture on my phone of a pancake that looks like a ... NSFW.


You could pretend it's Mickey Mouse with a really long nose, I guess.

My dream as of right now is to make a pancake that is a portrait of Oolong with a pancake on his head.

Time to make some kinako (toasted soy flour) pancakes!

I can make picture-perfect buttermilk pancakes but my kinako pancakes are always ... blobs.

You silly people. There are no ugly pancakes.

Growing up my mom used to make giraffe, mickey mouse, and smiley face pancakes for me. Years later as a teenager she taught me how to do it (back when I thought I would have kids, I thought then could be a "cool" dad)...

These folks have taken it to the next level. Fuckin' sweet!

I cannot tell you how much joy that hellboy story gives me

Those are awesome. The organ ones grossed me out though...but I think I could still eat them once drenched in syrup. :)

Much more impressive than my breakfast. I usually just have a bowl of Guamnola and a cup of Tahitea.

Organ pancakes! Did anyone else have to watch a sex ed video in elementary school, where the girl gets her first period while at a sleepover, and the mom makes uterus and fallopian tube pancakes the next morning to explain things to the girls? And then dad comes home with the orange juice he was sent for, saying "What are you ladies talking about?" and then everyone giggles like they're in on a secret he doesn't know about?

I didn't see that one, but I'm sure wishing I had!
