pancakes that look like people... or mushroom men

Oh my goodness... look at this pancake I made this morning: photo 1-2

Look familiar?

I didn't set out to make a mushroom man pancake. Perhaps, it's because the batter was a Fiber One pancake mix.

As for how they turned out, they were pretty good but had some sorta unidentifiable taste. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it was along the lines of something paint-like... or like crafts people glue (the glue that crafts people use, of course). I also decided to throw in a few blueberries... which failed to mix in properly and tasted like fruit covered in crafts people glue.

But, still, the pancakes were looking pretty good in the pan, and then I went in for the flip...
