Drunk as a perraner…

Happy Saint Piran’s day to all my Cornish friends. Being the inquisitive sort, I decided to find out a little about this day…

Saint Piran is the patron saint of tin miners, who would sack off work on this day and get hammered. The term ‘drunk as a perraner’ was coined.

To be honest, I’d be pretty miffed if I was Saint Piran, having pancake tuesday the day before, everyone is going to be a bit partied out, but I’m not a saint after all… Not yet…

For any friends who are celebrating today, please drink responsibly, IE, not when running up the stairs or holding scissors. The same goes for scoffing pasties, those things can be deadly in the wrong hands.

It kinda got me thinking… What is the strangest pasty you’ve ever had? I know I’m probably going to be killed for saying this, but I’m not a huge pasty fan and, if encouraged, will probably go for the rather simple cheese and onion pasty. What is your choice? Leave me a comment below.
