Every single pancake day, WITHOUT fail, I declare to family, friends and the people around me that "It's pancake day, yes it's pancake day, yes it's p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-pancake day."

The reason I do this is because of Maid Marian and her Merry Men, one of the greatest children's TV series of all time.

The sad thing is, it dawned on me yesterday that Maid Marian was first shown (and watched by me) in 1989, which means that I've now been singing that song once a year for twenty years. I'm incredibly old.

It's also monstrously sad that whenever I enthusiastically show under-privileged chums who never watched Maid Marian the DVDs of the series, they screw up their faces and refuse to get it.
