For anyone coming in from /r/All who might be confused about this one, the correct name of the station is London St Pancras. Today is "Shrove Tuesday" in the UK meaning it is mandatory for all British citizens to eat pancakes, or receive a hefty fine from Her Majesty the Queen, hence the reminder from National Rail. Continuous refusal to eat pancakes can occasionally land you a night in the Tower of London.
Oh fuck, yeah, today's pancake day!
Today's the day to sell your Jif shares if you have them!
I can totally imagine someone saying ‘i’ll have one ticket to London St Pancras please’ and the person on the counter saying ‘no. say it properly’ or ‘i’m sorry no trains are going there today’
And its still late. Never change Railway systems of England, never change.
I'm not saying that pancake day is over commercialized but eggs flour and milk have been in the shops for months now!
The one next to it looks like it says Sandwich. Someone is totally having a laugh. That’s not a real place.
Bet the station had to be syruptitious when putting this one up.
I've always called St Pancras St Pancakes... (because I had trouble pronouncing it right when I was younger so it stuck) I have a bunch of nicknames for places I can't be bothered to pronounce right. :)
Good luck to any tourists trying to figure out which train they need to catch!
