It's Shrove Tuesday! A wonderful day when we meaninglessly attempt to make pancakes, give up, then pop to Sainsbury's to see if they've got any of the disastrously underwhelming pre-made ones left.
I loathe the commercialisation of Shrove Tuesday. So far removed from our Lord's original pancake party.— Kevin Core (@KevinCore) February 9, 2016

A crepe is just a pancake that spent a year studying abroad and wants everyone to know it. #PancakeDay— Simon Caine (@thismademecool) February 9, 2016
Some of these pancake jokes are really crêpe.— cluedont (@cluedont) February 9, 2016
I always say I should make pancake jokes more often, but then only do them once a year when I realise how much hassle they are.— Barry (@QuantumPirate) February 9, 2016

#PancakeDay commemorates St. Pancake, the patron saint of makeup.— paul bassett davies (@thewritertype) February 9, 2016
Or, if these don't take your fancy, go with the reliable old clichés: calling everyone "tossers", saying "flipping heck" and telling everyone that pancake day "really créped up on you".
