National What?

Yes indeedy. Apparently it is National Pancake Day. I am all in favor of an entire day devoted to pancakes. I LOVE pancakes! Maybe we'll make them for dinner or something.

It is also National Spay Your Pet Day. Try as I might, I cannot really reconcile these two things, much less connect them to comics. And I can usually put two completely disparate things side by side and contemplate them with the uptmost complacency.

I suppose you could take your pet out to be neutered and then go for pancakes, while THINKing about comics. That's the best that I can do.

You know who would probably like pancakes?

Oh yeah.

I'll bet Guy loves big, greasy, filling breakfasts. Pancakes with tons of syrup, a whole plate of sausage and bacon, eggs...

And considering the way it behaves, I'd be willing to bet that Power Girl's cat needs to be neutered.

Ditto for Hal.

16th of Feb is pancake day in the UK, or Shrove Tuesday as it's also known. But we had our pancakes a day late this year.

Love pancakes. Never had them with suasuage, bacon and eggs tho... I wonder if american pancakes are different to UK pancakes?

I am eating pancakes as I type this. With REAL maple syrup...the kind that costs more than gold!


Where was I? Oh yes, Power Girl's cat definitely needs to be neutered. Do you remember the story where a group of villains had put a camera on his collar or something in order to spy on the Justice League, and all they got was footage of him licking himself and chasing Blue Jay?

I miss stuff like that.

National Spay Your Pet Day? I dare any vet to attempt that with Krypto...

Oh, Sally, I miss stories like that, too, even though I've never read that particular one. But remember the JLI story where Guy tangles with the alley cat? :D

Saranga, are pancakes for breakfast over in the UK? That might be the difference. :)

@ Liss. Not usually for breakfast. On Pancake day we generally have them for dinner, or pudding.
I have had them with savoury fillings, and really liked them, but my boyfriend thinks pancakes for the main meal is wrong so now I'm just having them for dessert. Bah. Also, in the UK most people only eat them on Pancake day,

I'm thinking Fido deserves the pancakes more so than whoever is dragging him to the vet

My dog feels hurt -- SHE never got pancakes after being spayed. Poor doggy.

I'll bet Hal is a big fan of potato pancakes. With LOTS of sour cream, and a big cup of coffee. When he BOTHERS to eat breakfast, that is.

Based on the few times Hal's been depicted eating in the comics, I've always been under the impression that Hal regards eating as a mere necessity or a way to socialize (or pick up girls), rather than as something to personally enjoy.

Kyle and John, on the other hand, are both probably addicted to watching the Food Network.

A big difference between pancakes in UK and USA is that pancakes in UK are thinner, more like crepes. In USA, they're flapjacks. I offer this comparison on the basis of my life in UK and my sis' life in USA :)

Crepes are for the humble, pancakes are for the bold.

(I think Flaming Carrot stated that...)

what? flapjacks are oaty things held together with honey and suchlike.

At 1:58 PM, Blogger poops said...

Don't you start talkin' flapjacks...I'm still trying to figure out the whole crepes vs. pancakes thing...

At 2:30 PM, Blogger Saranga said...

oh that's easy. crepes are in france and belgium. in the uk they're always pancaks. unless someone's being a prat, or trying to appear more sophisticated by using french words.

What the heck are crumpets, anyway?

I've always wanted to know.

ahhh, dammit. should have remembered to point out the flapjack difference in UK and USA.
As for pancakes (UK), a little like this (not the best photo possible, but it will have to do):
While in USA it would be more like this:
Hope this makes things slightly clearer.

crumpets: http://images.google.co.uk/images?q=crumpets&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi

you toast them and have them with a variety of toppings - jam, butter, honey, cheese and marmite. They are made from flour and yeast so I put them in the bread category of snacks, although the texture and taste is nothing like bread. they are quite solid. and really really good.

crumpet is also slang for ladyfriend, or hot woman. but that's not really in common usage anymore, tbh.

ooh wik, we have the american style pancakes too! I buy them in the supermarket and tend to go for the lemon and raisin ones. I *love* those pancakes, but they are not what we eat on shrove tuesday,

I know. I started off on those American style pancakes. But like you said, the ones on Shrove Tuesday are more the thin style. I like both of them equally, in different ways. There is a nice little pancake place I go to in Bath quite often that serves the thinner style.
