Fat Eddie and the Pasty Dance

Check this out for a bit of urban eating action. The Marylebone Station Cornish Pasty free-for-all. Fat Eddie hangs out there all the time.

“Mostly it’s just bits of pastry,” he said, “but sometimes you’re talking mince, cheese, warm veg. Once I got the whole lot. Bloody marvelous.”

Then he showed me how it’s done.

“See, all I do is slip in under here… Like this…”

Nicely done Eddie.

“Result!” He said, coming out with a slice of carrot topped with runny cheese.

But then he showed me how he celebrates. Oh dear. It’s called ‘The Pasty Dance’.

This is it. The Pasty Dance:


He wanted me to join in. Needless to say I politely declined.

    Fat Eddie knows how to party! Just needs a puddle of spilt cider to wash it down.

    “who of sound mind would fancy a pigeon, with their little gnarled, misshapen feet and tiny, unsympathetic eyes?”

      Richard: Cheers for the article. Shocking stuff indeed, although I do wish someone would come up with another name for keeping a load of pigeons. ‘Fancying’ always sounds a bit wrong to me.
      Your pal

    […] Time and time again I’ve read about the exploits of Daring Dave, chuckled at the striking resemblance of pigeons that look like Susan Boyle, and marvelled at Fat Eddie’s pasty dance. […]
