Pancake (Shrove) Tuesday rocks! IHOP used to celebrate it by giving out a free stack on this day before Ash Wednesday but in recent years has moved it back a week and turned it into a charity event. But this frees the holiday from coercion, and allows us again to celebrate it in the traditional way which includes racing with a pan holding a pancake or better, racing with a plate with a stack of pancakes held aloft.
finally the Christians do something right.
You would say that, eldergay / R2 / religioid.
Pancakes go right to the hips. Won't touch them. They are as unhealthy as potato chips.
My mom, who is from Lancaster, PA, made fastnacht for us when we were kids, on Shrove Tuesday. They're like a potato doughnut and we loved them.
One of the polling places in my neighborhood is at a church. When a recent election fell on Shrove Tues, the church staff made pancakes for the volunteer pollworkers.
Begnets and Daiquiris are what make the day before Ash Wednesday memorable, lightweights.
Nobody showed their tits or dick for a pancake.
Not even if they were Pancakes Barbara.
