It’s P-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-Pancake Day! In the U.S., at least. Other parts of the world celebrated Pancake Day last week on Shrove Tuesday, which I initially read as “Shroom Tuesday.” Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday. But last Tuesday was also Fat Tuesday, and We the People of Fat Ammy’s need to maximize our fat-related holidays whenever we can. We’re all just trying to get by, on a sled composed of butter. Sing it, Maid Marian and her Merry Men!

PopWatch PSA: You can go to IHOP and eat free pancakes until 10 p.m. They’re free, but charitable donations are encouraged. An infographic on the website uses the visual of 15 stacked pancakes to illustrate the concept “$5 million in five years.” No one really needs to understand this in order to appreciate it.)
