Yorkshire pudding... and jam?

My northern Auntie's would be turning in their graves.

As one outraged tweeter tweeted in response to an article in the New York Times that called them fluffy pancakes, "It’s called a YORKSHIRE PUDDING you heathens, the recipe is older than America!"

Whatever next, rice pudding and chips?

Re: Yorkshire pudding... and jam?

And yet, use the same batter mix as yorkie pud in a frying pan, and you have pancakes... Crazy

 

Dutch Babies are indeed basically a sweet Yorkshire pudding, I've seen a few recipes on youtube for them and the comments are hilarious with people getting up in arms about the Dutch Baby being a Yorkshire pudding and should be called as such, etc....

 

But, at the end of the day, it all turns into poo, regardless of the name... Funny

Turns to poo?

Ah yes, but it's the taste not the waste.

Add to that onion gravy and a pudding as big as a pan..... Thumbs Up

Re: Yorkshire pudding... and jam?

I'm of the belief that if food tastes good going down, I don't care what it's called, just so long as I can have it again at a later date... Grin

Were your aunties hot on the correct use of apostrophes and capital letters then?

Such a sad person  Crazy3

I believe using the word 'Troll' (with a capital 'T') has been frowned upon recently on here, so perhaps a more apt name would be 'Stalker' with a capital 'S'.

There are plenty of grammatical and spelling errors throughout the forum which you choose not to pick on, therefore I would suggest that it's evident to most readers that you seem to have a perverted fascination with picking on any slight error or imperfection by a particular poster.

To take a leaf out of your own book, you'll probably recall it wasn't long ago you were bleating on about bullying, and provided many links of your choosing to definitions of that subject, ah diddums.

However, ISTM that as I alluded to at the time after reading the first headers at a couple of your links, it was in fact you that was the bully.  You didn't seem to agree that was the case, but then, who'd expect you to?

After considering your behaviour I'm of the opinion that you fit perfectly the categorisation of 'Intellectual Bully'.

Maybe you'd like to read some of these definitions of yourself;

 

Google search for 'Intellectual Bully' plenty of results there for you.

e.g. What/who is an intellectual bully? etc. etc.

A bit rich from the person who posted this: https://community.plus.net/t5/General-Chat/Wrong-Charge/m-p/1536886#M244459

The strange thing is, I tried posting exactly the same thing in response to @Minivanman. My post was deleted by the mods. Your post remains. One might be tempted to think @Mav@Strat and @dvorak are not being impartial in carrying out their duties.

Are you still here whingeing, you old Intellectual Bully, you.  Roll eyes

Perhaps the mods (rightly in my opinion) thought your intentions were not the same as mine.

Where did I say anything about not posting light hearted humorous content?

Or have you had a sense of humour failure like @RobPN seems to have had?

@Anonymous

Are we supposed to laugh at that?

I've heard it said that to have a heart attack, you must have a heart in the first place.

Similarly, I doubt you ever had a sense of humour, so there's no danger of you losing yours.

Sorry, my friend, but I've been around a long time, and can spot an eternal stirrer from quite a distance.

You may think your comments are 'light-hearted' but your continued baiting of certain posters on here doesn't come across that way - to me,  at least.

No, I still have my sense of humour, but reserve it for things that are funny.

No need to apologise, but let’s be clear about one thing: I am not your friend.
