Don't forget the syrup!

Well, it's here once more: Pancake Day, the day we all ask Mum to dust down her cooking utensils, and flip us a pancake or two so that we can all enjoy a treat and remember why it is we all eat pancakes in the first place.

Pancakes were first flipped at the time of Jesus to mark the date when Jesus created one as he tried to bake a 'magic loaf' of bread, big enough to feed a throng of up to 5,000 people. He completely bolloxed it up, but the prototype of the modern-day pancake was born.

Some people refuse to believe this tale, particularly followers of other religions, such as Islam. Muslims believe that the prophet Muhammed created the first pancake when trying to perfect the first Semtex in AD612, though there is absolutely no proof of this whatsoever.

Other Christians believe the festival of pancakery has financial roots, and say it marks the occasion when Judas was lent 30 pancakes to betray Jesus, who was then 'flipped up' onto a crucifix.

With so much confusion surrounding the definitive history of pancakes, it's a wonder that archaeologists haven't tried harder to discover their story, but, so far, none have.

And who can blame them?

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
