Pancakes are the best thing to happen to (a) breakfast and (b) Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Penner.

Ever since he disclosed that he injured himself while eating a stack of "delicious pancakes" — unintentionally hilarious, given his notorious lack of conditioning — Penner has been a tremendously good sport about it. There was his "open letter" response to the story; his hilarious self-deprecating performance while interviewing his teammates; and now, the autograph above.

From reader Andrew Lam:

Just thought you might like to see what a box of Aunt Jemima's 'Just add water' box signed by Dustin Penner might look like. My friend Jenn (@whatsername10) got it signed when he was in Calgary Saturday before the game. He was a good sport about it and gave us a chuckle and a "that's nice" to go with it.

Pancake Power struck on Tuesday night at the Vancouver Canucks: Penner scored just his third of the season in the first period. Wonder what inspired him ...

Indeed, we are all members of the Immense Horde of Penner, as the IHOP members in Vancouver reminded us (via Kyle Levindofske).
