I'm saying that the ******* sell a @#%^ton* of pancakes, so they're a sizable enough portion to say that a good percentage of pancakes sold in restaurants come on separate plates from the eggs and meats.
By that logic, we can say most hamburgers taste like sh*t since Mcdonald's sells the most. Technically correct, but pretty much irrelevant.
If the whole argument was that the majority of fast food hamburgers sold taste like ****, then it's not irrelevant at all.
And since the IHOP comment:
IHOP here always serves pancakes on a separate plate. So does Waffle House.
I think they both try to make the meal look bigger by serving everything on 3-4 small plates, actually.
Was made in response to a small discussion following:
If you consider that he's referring to going out to eat, many places serve their pancakes on completely separate plates from everything else. That being the case, getting syrup on your bacon(as per your earlier issue with pairing the two in the first place) would be much less of a surety.
It follows that IHOP's pancake sales volume is kinda relevant to that argument. Sure, said argument is tangential at best, but in the context of that argument, that point is kinda valid.
