Paranormal pancakes

Since we’ve been scaring ourselves witless today, (Editor’s note: Whoops, yesterday. Sorry!) wouldn’t it be nice to add some topical terror to proceedings? (Yes it would) Because in Bedfordshire, England, there is a small village called Toddington. And Toddington has a witch. A witch that likes PANCAKES.

In a somewhat confusing report, the BBC tells us:

“When the Toddington parish church bell rings just before midday, about 60 school children will leave their classes and run up Conger Hill… After running up the hill, the children will press their ears to the ground and listen for the sizzling sound of a witch frying her pancakes underneath.”

That’s the kids listening a few years ago. There’s some dumb explanation about it being bells vibrating? Whatever. I think we all know it’s paranormal activity. Plus of course, we all know witches love pancakes.

I do wonder though, about toppings. If a witch could choose, which topping would a witch go for? Lemon but no sugar, I reckon.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to compare my craving for certain foods to Sabrina’s pancake addiction only to receive blank stares, so thank you for proving that I’m not the only one who knows that the answer to the riddle is cakes on the griddle.

        I one time saw a tweet that said: “Hashtags make me hungry. They look like tiny little waffles.” Well said mystery twitter person, I now am hungry for #waffles too.

  3. Living alone (well, probably with a few ghost cats) in an underground cave, eating pancakes? That witch has it made.

    Real Ghost news: Mr Truck likes to joke that there’s a ghost doing whatever weird thing is happening. Normally I’m on board with this because it leads to lots of fun spooky jokes, but last night it got actually spooky. We all know that animals are specially tuned to ghosts. Well! Last night my cat was sitting on the arm of a chair and staring up at the corner of the room, meowing. I thought it was probably a bug, and maybe it was, but then! Our dog was staring out the back window at something spooky and then i opened the door because if it’s something he’ll want to chase it, but he was scared and he wouldn’t go out there but he was hunched over and pointing and staring at. This happened several times and he wouldn’t go investigate, but there was almost definitely a ghost under the grill.

    I was about to write that I would eat any pancakes regardless of where they came from, but then I realized that I probably wouldn’t eat dumpster pancakes. Sorry guys I have my limits.

      Then you would have been hungry in my house last night! (Only the first one, the first one was rubbish and the first one is always rubbish, right? Right?)
