A MAN pointing out that you can have pancakes whenever you want only eats them on pancake day.
Julian Cook, aged 35, always reminds everyone that pancakes are a delicious and versatile treat all year round, for all the world as if he had them on any other occasion but this.
Cook continued: “The French call them crêpes. The Dutch eat them twice a week. But the benighted British? Once a year.
“As I always remind everyone on the exact day before Shrove Tuesday, pancakes are great. Personally I’d eat them all year round if I could but I’m training for a marathon.
“It’s like only eating bread once a year, or pigs-in-blankets, or bonfire toffee. Why be held a prisoner by the calendar?”
Colleauge Donna Sheridan said: “He was like this with fireworks until he let off an Excalibur multishot barrage firework in February and the council slapped him with an abatement notice.”
