Fibbing Friday 18th September, my response

Here are Frank’s questions and my responses.

  1. What exactly is Yorkshire pudding?
    It’s a dessert made in the shape of white rose petals
  2. What is treacle, and why do people make tarts out of it?
    It refers to the brandy hidden in the The Queen of Hearts pocket which Alice used as the secret ingredient in her tarts which kept her Highness happy …… and high.
  3. What is the key ingredient of haggis?
    Old women
  4. How is toffee made?
    By making all the Toffs from university pay for their own entrance fees.
  5. How did pound cake get its name?
    Kennels maids referred to clean up duty as removing the pound ‘cakes’.
  6. Why is candy corn so named?
    It was to confuse trick or treaters when they were given grain instead of sweets at Halloween.
  7. What is marzipan?
    It’s a red star constellation in our galaxy 
  8. Why is a baker’s dozen so named?
    Because Old Man Baker couldn’t count. 
  9. What is meant by the idiom, “Too many cooks spoil the pot”?
    This dates back to medieval times of witches and dark magic. One was making a love potion which was destroyed when the other members of the cauldron tried to improve it to suit their own tastes.
  10. What is meant by the idiom, “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander”?
    It was a cost cutting exercise by management rather than have two different dressings determined by whether the meat was from a male or female bird. The argument was that the punters would never know anyway.

Don’t you love the new logo? Thanks Frank!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
