Pancakes for St. Pancake

I had a good laugh the first time I looked at my computer this morning. There staring at me was a post on Little Green Footballs called The Rachel Corrie Pancake Breakfast. For those of you fortunate enough to have forgotten, Rachel Corrie was the American radical affiliated with the terrorist sympathizing International Solidarity Movement, who was accidentally crushed under an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza on March 16, 2003. On the right side of the blogospher, Rachel Corrie is known as St. Pancake.

Early in 2004, Little Green Footballs awarded Corrie its coveted Robert Fisk Award for the Idiotarian of the Year 2003.

But this post did not originate at Little Green Footballs. It originated at the radical leftist Indymedia blog. So this post is Indymedia imitating Little Green Footballs:

The Rachel Corrie Memorial Committee of Victoria Invites you to a pancake breakfast at Denny’s Restaurant Sunday March 12 , 2006 10 am.

The Public is invited to a memorial pancake breakfast at Denny’s Restaurant on Douglas Street near Finlayson, 10 am, Sunday March 12, 2006 to celebrate the life and untimely death of Rachel Corrie, Peace Activist with the International Solidarity Movement.

There will be a reading of selections from Ms. Corrie’s letters and diary, followed by a ceremony at Topaz Park, where a stone cairn will be erected in her honour.

Attendees are encouraged to wear their keffiahs, and to dress in black.

No weapons, drugs, or alcohol please.


I'm sure all my readers will attend.
