Does anybody know, is there any truth behind the 'Eccles Cakes' entry in Roger's Profanisaurus? Any witnesses? It certainly has an air of plausability about it.

It certainly is true. Once in the Brewers, once in the Gardeners.
I'm sure Huw from the Elly will be able to confirm the details...

Can confirm the Gardiner's. Cider drinking and shorts. Not a good combination!

I am probably being a bit slow here, but which edition of the Profanisaurus are you using? I have the 1998 "new expanded edition" in hard copy format, this gives me "Eccles Snake", but not "Eccles Cake". I also checked the latest bi-monthly update on the top shelf of WH Smith, but to no avail. Is it on-line maybe?

So for those of us who can't be bothered to go and buy a copy, what is an Eccles Cake in the Profanisaurus?

Thanks for the reference expat two. I don't have that edition, but I met someone at the Gardeners last night who was able to fill me in on the details! Now all the comments above make sense. "Typer", to save webbo being sued for defamation of character, it is probably best that we don't provide the exact defintion of "Eccles Cake" on this forum. But you could always stroll down to WH Smith tomorrow and look it up yourself!

I donít claim anything

I merely posted what a friend of mine wrote to his mp.

I made no indication that I disbelieve or... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
