    Why are you eating pancakes now?
    Because, unlike the americans, we schedule only a few special days of the year to eat like pigs.

    Not sure that applies to mowgli :)

    Not just that, they eat them with sausage and smother that shit in syrup, sausage and all. And scrambled eggs. And cereal with marshmallows in it.

    For all of the talk about how fat Americans are and how badly we eat, I figured Brits would be one of the fittest of countries.

    Nope - turns out you're almost as fat as we are! This was done last year, but I can't believe the #s have changed much.

    http://www.expatify.com/news/the-worlds-top-10-fattest-countries.html

    US = #3 (67%)
    UK = #10 (61%)

    This one puts you at #5 - http://www.healthrelatedinfos.com/most-overweight-countries-obesity-rates-by-country-1609/

    So, yeah, whatever you're doing isn't exactly working either. And it somewhat justified my belief in the first place, given that one of the fattest actors I've ever seen (Potter's Uncle) is a Brit! Well, I don't really know where he's from, but he's got the accent and I'm going to make a general stereotype based on that. :p

    Those people are in the north. We farm and force feed them and use their secretions to grease our godlike Adonis pecs.

    Basically we're beautiful, intelligent gods. Deal with it.

    Alternatively, that headcount included a few coachloads of american tourists, brainlessly bumbling around Buckingham Palace saying things like "we got those in Mississippi like that, but nothing like that".

    Obviously I'm kidding, I love Americans. But that meat+syrup thing. Got to go.

    I know you're joking, but a lot of people around here aren't!

    I'll admit that I'm probably gross for dipping stuff in my syrup. I'm a dipper, though... I can't help it. It's like how George can parallel park: it's ingrained.

    Can I just say that the insertion of pancakes into my mouth-hole has cheered me up somewhat after the football tonight. Proof of their magical properties I think you'll find.

    Plus nutella on pancakes is ace, why'd I never try that before, eh?

    And so the snooty real lemon arguments begin again :)

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Please don't tell me there were arguments over whether real lemon juice is better than the stuff thats comes in a bottle ? Because i bet you none of those who expressed a preference could tell the difference in a blind taste test.

    I'm looking forward to a massive pancake blow out tomorrow night.

    I have a bad cold and can't plan to run it off just now as my lungs are clogged with all sorts of icky gunge, but that's not going to stop me trying to eat my own body weight in pancake-y goodness!

    Most bottled lemon juice doesn't have the same acidity as real lemon juice. The from-concentrate stuff is usually watered down and has a slightly musty aftertaste.

    So ner :)

    I can tell the difference between Jif lemon and real lemon, but when we're talking on pancakes with sugar or whatever I just don't give enough of a fuck.

    Just don't put Cif on your pancakes people. It's not lemon juice.

    Nah, you probably won't tell the difference there. But when has that ever stopped us bickering? :)

    I think that calling the day before pancake day, 'Panic Day' is an excellent idea...

    For too long people have lacked a solid single day on which to panic, prefering to spread it over the whole year with easily forgetable birthdays, anniversaries and sundry social occassions.
    Now on the Monday before Pancake day, people can realise that they lack all the vital ingredients to make Pancakes...

    Or we could just buy some ready made...
