There... my pointless contribution to commentary on the game and the description.



Yes, forcing a forced meme here.

For those who don't know the story of this (I did post it in a thread or two connected to the game), someone on a forum somewhere said, "Hey, let's come up with a meme!" and that came about, and people ran with it. Now, it pops into my head whenever waffles are mentioned. That picture is cute. Bunny vampire FTW!

As far as I know, the complete story is this:

Stephen Colbert's "Truthiness" rally was wildly popular on Reddit (maybe because the idea originated there? I'm not sure), and a large portion of redditors had gone there. Jealous that they had become "cool" by going to the rally, one of the non-rally-goers made a post on the rally day, saying "Let's make up a meme today and confuse the returning rally-goers tomorrow. Something like, whenever someone says carrots, we'll reply with 'Hahaha! Don't you mean waffles?'. But something better".

That something better never came up, and this carrots-waffles thing became the meme. It (deservedly) died out soon though, and now invoked only for nostalgic effects.

And that's the story of how carrots met waffles.
