Catch the pancake...

"Shrive thee pancake! Do not smile at me oh sinner made from egg and flour!" said the little boy in a righteous fury.

Are you ready to shrive?
Next week is Shrove Tuesday, a day in which you must make confession and be rid of your past sins in the same way you will get rid of all your leftovers in a pancake.

@Dr Bob Nicholson 'The Runaway Pancake' (The Child's Companion, 1879). RUN LITTLE PANCAKE! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!  @Dr Bob Nicholson Spolier Alert: the pancake escaped, but its "adventures were ended forever" by a seemingly-polite pig who tricked and ate it.:
This  pancake did not confess.
They will catch it... it will shrive... and then it shall be eaten as all sinners are...
Do not make the same mistake...
