  1. Here in the UK "English Muffins" are called "Crumpets".

    1. Or rather mistaken for it seems. Scottish Crumpets (a sort of pancake/flapjack) are different from english crumpets and I found a mess I didn't expect at all.

    3. Fixed! I like the word "crumpet" better anyway

  2. Also, flapjacks aren't round or bready.

  4. Aww, I was hoping there'd be something from India, seeing as there are a variety of them that can be rendered "photo-realistically" just like this, haha. (I'm not Indian; I just like their round bready things.) Anyway, even if the lady was right about your comicking motivation this week, this would do nicely. Thanks for the weekly gag; I look forward to it every week.

    1. Naan is Indian, although I'm sure it's not specific to just India.

    2. Maybe I'll do one whole strip of JUST different Indian circle-bready foods. I certainly found enough of them when I "researched" this comic

  6. Huh, isn't a crêpe the exact same thing as a pancake?

    1. Crepes are very very thin and much more eggy than pancakes. They are thin enough that they generally are wrapped around some kind of filling.

  7. Crêpes are much thinner than (American) pancakes, and they are unleavened, but baking powder is used to leaven pancakes. The taste is quite different too.

    Then there are also blinis!

  8. Eierkuchen! Palatschinken! Pfannkuchen! - all missing, all German for pancake (well there might be more, also depending on the region they describe something else...)
