    It's the way Palin sings it and the background that makes me laugh as much as the lyrics

    yes, it's even funnier if you live here, and know the 'third world' Yorkshire stereotype. 'I'm a roman catholic, and have being since before I was born' is so funny and so accurate

    Yeah me too, I'm so glad you mentioned it, now I can give you some interesting yorkshire pudding facts:

    Yorkshire pudding is an English food made from batter consisting of eggs, flour, and milk or water. It is often served with beef and gravy and is part of the traditional British Sunday roast.

    • When wheat flour began to come into common use for making cakes and puddings, cooks in the north of England devised a means of making use of the fat that dropped into the dripping pan to cook a batter pudding while the meat roasted.
    • The traditional way to eat Yorkshire Pudding was as a separate course before the meal. Lore says that this was a trick to fill-up the family less meat could be served.
    • The first Yorkshire Pudding recipe dates back to 1866 and was created by a woman called Mrs Beeton.
    • February 3rd is British Yorkshire Pudding Day.
    • October 13th is National Yorkshire Pudding Day.
    • The fat must be extremely hot when the batter goes in. Getting a good sizzle as the batter hits the dripping is the secret to a great Yorkshire Pudding.

    Here is a picture of some yorkshire pudding:

    And here's a smiling parrot:

    I like Yorkshire pudding also. They're a nice thing to have with your Sunday roast.

    Also, there's something decidedly sinister about the way that parrot is smirking. I wouldn't trust that bird.

    Hooray for yorkshire pudding fans everywhere!

    Did you know, it is a versatile food that can be served in numerous ways depending on the choice of ingredients, the size of the pudding(s) and the accompanying components of the dish. As a first course it can be served with onion gravy. For a main course it is often served with beef and gravy and is part of the traditional Sunday roast, but can also be filled with foods such as bangers and mash to make a meal. Jam and sugar can be added instead if served as a dessert. Wow!

    As for that parrot, do you fear it knows your secrets?

    No I didn't know that. Thank you for sharing this valuable Yorkshire pudding-based information.

    Yes, and considering that parrots can talk I fear they won't be secrets for long.

    You're most welcome @Bluey. Here's another interesting yorkshire pudding fact:

    Yorkshireman Christopher Blackburn is from Halifax and loves Yorkshire puds so much that he created a website extolling the virtues

    of this traditional dish. His is also the reigning Yorkshire pudding champion.

    Also, does this parrot by any chance know if you wear specs?

    I wasn't aware that Yorkshire puddings have champions. I'm gaining a lot of knowledge from this thread. Thank you for creating it, @neilold .
    I'm sure the parrot knows whether or not I have glasses. No doubt if you manage to track the parrot down it will let you know.

    My important question is what brand of gravy do you put on it, or do you like it commando?
