Pancake health warning

Home » Latest News » Pancake health warning

Today is, of course, Shrove Tuesday which means the pancake batter is being mixed everywhere and the pans prepared. But everything in life now comes with a health warning. By a wonderful co-incidence, today is also Repetitive Strain Injury Day — so go easy on all that tossing!

It always seems a shame we English limit ourselves to a few pancakes while much of the world has Carnivals and Mardi Gras as their pre-Lent festival. Even the Germans, and the writer of this piece experienced it a few years ago, have a three day and night event called Fasching which involved, it seemed, never leaving the pub for 72 hours! Perhaps Audlem could think of something along the same lines next year — anything that's a little more exciting than a few pancakes with all those risks of Repetitive Strain Injury.
