This might sound a bit like "get ya head out ya butt me Ansome" but im glad its happend.
Cornish people are very proud of there pasties and get disheartend buy the horrible tasteless stodgey crap others try to pass off being Cornish.
Now just gotta get Guinsters to take the word Cornish off there poor excuses for a pastie.
But gotta admit doing things like this can go a bit far and become a bit stupid in the end.

Nothing beats a traditional proper cornish oggie.
I agree that Ginsters pasties are horrible but where does that leave Ivor Dewdneys cornish pasties which are made in Plymouth.
Cornish saffron cake....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm now there is something I miss! and real cornish clotted cream ice cream......
The crap that is pawned off as being a cornish pasty is outrageous. I think making it protected is going too far, but maybe a particular recipe should be follwed to call in a "cornish pasty" and not just a meat pasty.
I'm Cornish and proud!
But it's ok because the ones sold here are called cornish parrrrrrsties....
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
Well, just be glad that here in Australia, they haven't introduced the pastie tax. Yet. No, it is not an April Fool.
I kid you not. I read it in the AFR today.
"Barely a week after the Chancellor decided to slap VAT on baked goods sold as hot takeaway food, including pies and Cornish pasties, Mr Whelan has sold his Wigan-based Pooles Pies for £5m."

I guess that leaves him the wrong side of the Tamar,he sounds Welsh anyway.
They make pretty good 'parsties' at the Port Elliot bakery (though still not quite as good as the real thing)
