CHILDREN across Britain have been informed that absolutely nobody turns pancakes over by flipping them up in the air and catching them perfectly in the pan.
Parents have gently relieved their offspring of the notion that, in addition to eating unlimited amounts of syrup and cream and calling it a meal, they are going to watch mummy doing kitchen circus tricks for free.
Sue Traherne of Oxford said: “Firstly, the pan’s heavy as a bastard. Second, it’s full of hot fat, so the risk factor is extremely high.
“Third, I’m expected to flip a floppy disc into the air so expertly that it does a single 180-degree rotation while remaining flat and land it back on an area exactly its size? The fuck?
“You don’t ask me to juggle the bread rolls while I’m making sandwiches and rightly so, even though it’d be far easier than this pancake crap.
“Yeah they did it on Peppa Pig. Peppa Pig’s not real, kids. That’s why they didn’t show Daddy Pig losing his shit when charged £118 for a family pass for Potato City.”
Son Charlie Traherne said: “But tossing the pancake’s the only good bit. They don’t taste like anything.”
