Meditating Piskie

Even Cornish piskies need to find time for a bit of meditation.

People often ask what is the difference between a Cornish Piskie and a Devon Pixie.

Well..... back at the dawn of time, a few brave Cornish Piskies decided to venture over the River Tamar, into the badlands of Devon to see if it was worth colonising. Sadly they found that it was an awful heathen place. They were horrified to find that Devon Pasties were just rubbish...... (full of cheap mince brown sludge and carrots... shocking) and that Devon cream teas were an abomination, with their perverted habits of putting the jam on top of the cream. I am told that this unsavory habit is due to the fact that Devon Clotted cream is a shameful inferior imitation of proper Cornish Clotted Cream, so they they try to hide it under the jam.

They very quickly returned home to resume working in their beloved Cornish fudge quarries, Pasty Orchards and to tend the Cornish Scrumpy lakes.

The people of Devon these days just dress up very small children to look like diminutive garden gnomes and try to con tourists into believing that they are "Pixies"..... but they aren't fooling anybody. :)
Ohhhhhhh........think I may take cover !!!!!
