LIKE MANY PEOPLE in Ireland, Leo Varadkar had a pancake yesterday.

In an attempt to relate to the citizens of this country, he made the huge mistake of sharing a photograph of this pancake. This desperately sad, shockingly thin and absurdly transparent pancake. It’s more like a pansliver. There’s no cake element to this, whatsoever.

That’s not much of a treat before the ‘Lenten fast’. It looks like it was shaved off of a normal pancake.

Of course, the jokes began to roll in.

2. This pancake offers no UV protection.

3. The pancake is consistent with Leo’s attitude to public spending.

4. It has been dubbed the ‘austerity pancake’.

5. It’s as bleak as our futures.

6. It’s probably calorie negative.

7. The transparency is not something we’re used to.

8. Even Fine Gael TDs were calling him out on this atrocity.


10. This photo sums it up.

Well, at least he knows that next time the government need to create a distraction, all they’ve got to do is post a food pic to freak everyone out.
