Okay, while I do have tons of work today, I’d like to remind everyone that today is NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY.
Pancakes are the best. And according to Steven Corfe, it’s because of Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday, when all the wee Brits throw the remaining food from their larders into a giant pancake to eat before they starve themselves for Lent. Whatever. They said it’s for Jesus Christ but I think they’re just trying to lose the extra weight. Plus, why would you ever really want to do that? Don’t British people eat things like fish & chips and mincemeat pies and puddings and treacle tarts and salted mackerel and scones? Why would you ever want to put that in a huge pancake? That sounds so gross. (And I clearly read too many Harry Potter books.)
But everyone should all go their local IHOP for FREE PANCAKES!!!!* (Don’t forget to read the small print.)

*FREE PANCAKES entitles one guest a free short stack of pancakes until 3:00pm, with a suggested donation to their literacy charity or some BS like that. Reading is so overrated.
