“Pancake jokes are for tossers”

Pancake jokes are popular on Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday). There are many pancake puns about pancake jokes.

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.
Wiktionary: tosser
+‎ -er. In the British slang senses, toss refers specifically to the masturbate meaning.

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”.
Some of these pancake jokes are really crêpe.
