"You could have stolen UPWARDS of one Sega tape."
Sega Genesis controllers are compatible with the Atari 2600, but apparently not with waffle irons.

Sega Tapes, the cartridges used by the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive game system, have appeared in the Homestar Runner universe. While none of the characters has been seen playing any of these games, Homestar Runner once attempted to use a Sega tape and controller with a waffle iron, with delicious results.

"Tape" is a somewhat common misnomer for cartridge, referring to the Sega Genesis cartridges' resemblance to cassette tapes. The cartridges for the Sega Genesis used semiconductor-based ROM chips for data storage, not spools of magnetic tape, so they are not actually tapes.
