  1. What exactly is Yorkshire pudding?

It’s similar to Hampshire pudding but it’s made in New York. With a side of Worcestershire sauce..

  1. What is treacle, and why do people make tarts out of it?

Treacle is the super sweet sap that leaks out of Treacle trees, which are indigenous to England. People make tarts out of it because they can. Treacle Tarts really gum-up the toaster. Better to stick with good ol’ Pop-Tarts.

  1. What is the key ingredient of haggis?

Gifts that the Scottish Hagi bring. (like the Magi).

  1. How is toffee made?

Toffee is just like coffee, except you make it with T(ea).

  1. How did pound cake get its name?

You have to pound it with a hammer to get the lumps out.

  1. Why is candy corn so named?

It’s for people who are too lazy to pop the corn, so they melt sugar & syrup (perhaps treacle?), add some food coloring and then dip the kernels in it.

  1. What is marzipan?

It is a pancake-like object that is hurled to the earth from beings who live on Mars. This is where Frisbee’s come from.

  1. Why is a baker’s dozen so named?

Most bakers have about 13 kids. Why, you ask? Well, you’ve heard the saying “If you want bread, go f*** a baker,” right? Apparently there are some women who really like bread a lot.

  1. What is meant by the idiom, “Too many cooks spoil the pot”?

If you cram too many cooks into a pot it gets bent out of shape and becomes useless..

  1. What is meant by the idiom, “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander”?

It’s a slogan for equality among geese.

      1. I’ll have to try that. Toasters, oddly enough, are hard to get now (is there some kind of hatred against toasting things in the Time of Covid?) and expensive. I don’t wish to lose another one…
