An anonymous though highly placed source has informed us of a secret relationship between the manufacturers of a particular brand of waffle iron and the makers of a certain type of instant pancake batter.

It appears that Wafflers Ltd., of Rhode Island, and Pancakers Inc., of Connecticut, are owned by the same multinational corporation. They have made no attempt whatsoever to conceal this collusion, and critics are appalled.

This clandestine arrangement serves merely the ironsmiths who create the raw materials for the Wafflers, the wheat mills who grind for Pancakers, and reporters such as myself who know fuss sells newspapers.
