Horton Hears a Pretty Queer-Looking Pancake
In honor of the Dr. SeussHorton Hears a Who! film, which opens nationwide today, that beloved American road trip accessory and hangover-helper, The International House of Pancakes, is opening up to the possibility of imaginary, rainbow food.
The Green Eggs and Ham, thankfully, are not a food-color dye-job, but the artful scrambling of spinach, eggs, and ham. I was sold at the rainbow stack of buttermilk Who-Cakes, dripping with boysenberry, blueberry, rainbow chocolate chips, and topped with a pink lollipop.
But while this may be a fun pit stop for the big kids, who would want to baby-sit the sugar-mad toddler who consumes all this?
Check out this little bonus of rainbow flavor with your classic Americana cuisine anytime from now until April 20th.
Horton Hears a Who!, incidentally, stars Steve Carell, who played the Proust-saturated, gay uncle in the campy road trip movie, Little Miss Sunshine (2006), which did not include any IHOPs.
