“Pancake Day really crêped up on us”

Pancake Day is SHrove Tuesday. “Pancake Day really crêped up on us” is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on GIFs.

“Pancake Day already? That’s Creped up on us this year!” was posted on Twitter on March 8, 2011.


Wikipedia: Shrove Tuesday
Shrove Tuesday (also known in Commonwealth countries as Pancake Tuesday or Pancake day) is the day in February or March immediately preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes. In others, especially those where it is called Mardi Gras or some translation thereof, this is a carnival day, and also the last day of “fat eating” or “gorging” before the fasting period of Lent.

Or, if these don’t take your fancy, go with the reliable old clichés: calling everyone “tossers”, saying “flipping heck” and telling everyone that pancake day “really créped up on you”.

CHARLIE KAY Ipswich, Suffolk IT’S Pancake Day at the end of this month - it’s creped up on us again.
