After seeing the disturbing Big Dog in action it seems that we will soon be overrun by robot dogs, cows and other 4 legged mechanical creatures that force us to do there bidding. Fortunately when that day comes there will still be plenty of pancakes – yay!

Still a long way from a true master pancake chef.
