Dear Jeff, I do applaud your impeccable taste and appreciate the 
colourful description of your objections. And I rightfully accept that 
you where forced to misinterpret 'waffle' so you could keep consistency 
in the classification of being pedantic.

Having said that,  I do like to bring to your attention that her
