if this is true

The people of Scotland are said to be having an identity crisis after it turns out the haggis was in fact invented in Lancashire, England.
This was further confounded by the fact that the bagpipes originated in the middle east and the kilt was just something gay Gordon fancied wearing.

No ! NO Richard !

you bleddy plimuff boys trying to nick our invention (well I'm half Cornish on me mutha's side)

do you know how the pasty got its name ?

Well I'll enlighten you all, are you sittin comfertabul like ? then aye will begin see.

The old Cornish wives used to bake the pasties in the morning after the men had gone off to the mines, they would traipse up to the mine like, the men wouldn't climb out of the old mines but they wud wait see, wait at a level where the wives could see them then drop the pasties to em see

They would wait a few moments then shout

"past ee did it me ansum ?

Get it ? ---- past ee ?

but is it true......

that original pasties had meat n veg in one end and a sweet in the other? like a complete meal in one pie....

also i am led to believe that they were made with the large folded crust to be used as a handle, so the tin miners could hold the crust and eat without the need to wash hands etc and then would throw the crust away rather than eat 'contaminated' food... this may be true, or it may just be rumour and old wives stories... not sure..
