That's a laugh riot.

I've recently acquired the Japanese version, "takoyaki" pan for little 
doughballs with seafood in them -- traditionally octopus "tako" but 
sometimes shrimp.  Savories, with a sweet sauce and green onions.  The 
pan makes smaller "puffs" and I suppose this group with "invent" those 
next year.

Pass the maple syrple!
