Well, sheeeit...I did it again and forgot to post yesterday. As penance, I shall post twice today!
Actually, waffles aren't the analogy today, but the literal issue at a festival in Sweden where the Swedish "young pirates association" was handing out free waffles.
This did not go over well with the established waffle sellers, as it undercut them and cost them business. So they were ejected from the festival.
The ironies and analogies are abundant and obvious, and I'll let you draw your own conclusions. Discuss amongst yourselves....
