How we saved the world from Thrash Cakes, part 1

It went something like this:
Ryan: This Wikipedia article on pancakes "may contain original research"
Me: I like pancakes, what's their pancake research?
Ryan: Well, that depends on which type of pancake you want.
Me: What are my choices?
Ryan: Well, there's American, Canadian, Vermont, Hotcakes, griddlecakes, flapjacks, drop scones, Scotch pancakes, pikelets, ...
Me: Wait, go back one!
Ryan: Also, it says that "[i]n Santa Rosa or anywhere near the San Fransisco Bay Area they are known as "Thrash Cakes" named after the musical genre, which is popular in the region.[citation needed]"
Me: That can't be right.
