Retrospace coined the phase "pancakes" as a euphemism for a prominent for of entertainment on the Internet that also starts with the letter "p." There were so many pop songs about "pancakes" that I needed a second playlist. I also see that I could make "pancake" playlist for The Rolling Stones and Prince alone. If you remember, Prince's popularity lead to the call for warning labels on music.

One of the radio stations here in the Ozarks runs a liner that says "Would you want your grandmother to hear some of the current hits played on other radio stations?" My Grandma Jones (Rest her soul) referred to a woman in a skimpy or short dress as "showing Christmas" and referring to a small amount of something as not being "enough to fill a cat's butt." Emenim and 50 Cent isn't going to upset her too much.

Here is those songs about "pancakes" that would upset the grandmas of Springfield, MO.
