Pancake - to most people, it’s a delicious disc-shaped snack made from fat and flour and old milk.
To considerably fewer people, it’s the art of dropping your lowrider (y’know - those bouncy cars from Snoop Dogg videos) as close to the floor as possible via some hydraulic suspension.

And another lowrider story, right here, for your delectation. We spoil you, y’know?
