Frank’s Fibbing Friday 19th February: my responses

Here are my responses to Frank’s Fibbing Friday questions earlier.

  1. How did tartar sauce get its name?
    A failed dieter said ta-ta to calorie counting and smothered her dinner in sauce.
  2. Why is Mardis Gras (aka Shrove Tuesday) also known as Pancake Day?
    It was a typo and should have read Shove Tuesday as everyone shoved as many calories into their gobs as possible, hence also giving rise to FAT Tuesday.
  3. Why do so many people eat fish during Lent?
    Probably because they see flat fish as low calorie and can show willing after Shove Tuesday.
  4. What is the difference between sushi and sashimi?
    The size of the dish it’s on, and whether or not you have chips.
  5. What is noodling?
    The stuff you can’t do when canoodling.
  6. How do you clean a fish?
    Put it in the washing machine.
  7. What are Swedish fish?
    A pair of flip flops.
  8. What is a Bishop’s Mitre?
    They say it’s mightier than the sword, so I guess it’s a sharp knife.
  9. What was the movie, The Shoes of the Fisherman about?
    Cinderella’s cobbler trying a new sideline.
  10. What is the first day after Lent known as?
    Chocolate Day!!

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

  6. #1 and #6 made me LOL, but I don’t get #7

    • I had no idea what they were, and thought of Joanna Lumley making shoes out of her bra when on a desert island for a TV reality show. She called them ‘fish feet’. Just the way my mind worked today and totally unrelated!.
