It’s P-P-P-P-P-P-P-P-Pancake Day!

Today is Shrove Tuesday. Pancake Day. The day in which households should use up their eggs, butter and flour ahead of Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. No Valentine’s Day chocolates for you!

But it is also the day in which we remember the post-Blackadder kids TV series Maid Marion And Her Merry Men created by, written by and co-starring, Tony Robinson. These days, it would be condemned as some SJW-activist indoctrination of kids reworking of Robin Hood and an attempt to destroy society by depriving them of a strong and classical male role model thief/terrorist as well also suggesting there might have been a black fellow in the Sherwood Forest. But back in 1989, it was just a kids show on ITV.

Anyway, their Pancake Day opening is what seems to have stuck most in the collective British context. Especially since we keep playing it every Pancake Day…

And we are not the only ones who remember. He remembers too.

I’d like to wish all inhabitants of twitter Bon Appetit because today is pancake day, yes it’s pancake day, yes it’s p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p pancake day!

Since he got on Twitter, at least. So that’s two years. But others remember and have gone back longer, such as the performer of said-song, Danny John Jules.

I’m going to send a DVD to the person that gets the most RT’s of MAID MARIAN’s Barrington ‘PANCAKE DAY’. I can’t wait to piss off Twitter.

Barrington should be performing at ‘The S**ts’ tonight but he pulled out because they wanted him to mime ‘Pancake Day’, Yes it’s pancake day

Which means next year… will be the 30th Anniversary!

Seriously, this is what we do in this country. For my own preference, sieved plain flour in a boll, broken egg on top, mixed well, milk added and mixed, slowly, whisked, pinch of salt, proper butter melted in pan, added to mix, whisked again, pain then heated till smoking and pancake mix added by ladle. Whizz it around, flip it harder than you think you need to, serve with a couple of squeezes of lemon juice and sugar. Jobs a good ‘un.
