Syrup Can Be Kept In  Fridge For UP To 1 Year

Four or five days ago ESPN first broke the story about LA Kings forward Dustin Penner and his now famous PANCAKE injury.

I had no idea a stack of pancakes could cause such a slick mess, but it has, and on Tuesday the Vancouver Canucks fans let him have it.

Allegedly Penner and his weak back went out while “eating” pancakes.

At least here is his explanation originally given to Rich Hammond of L.A. Kings Insider:

“I woke up fine, sat down to eat and [my back] locked right up. It never happened to me before. I couldn’t stand up. I was probably at the third stage of evolution.”

I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made.”

Well now caught on camera is the mysterious bottle of Aunt Jemima syrup left for Penner during the Kings vs. Canucks game.

He was Aunt Jemimalurked…

Bad taste? Ya probably.

But just think about it. Canadians and Maple Syrup jokes go hand in hand. We coined the joke…

Maple syrup kicks Mrs. Butterworths ass (…don’t know about Aunt Jemima though).

All Dustin should do is just realize how Syrup is made.

In summer months, as maple trees grow, they accumulate starch in their trunks that sticks around during winter’s dormant period.

When warmer spring weather arrives, and the ground begins to thaw, enzymes in the tree gradually change the starch into sugar.

Water gets drawn up by the roots and mixes with that sugar creating a slightly sweet tasting sap that has about a 97 per cent water content.

Maple syrup producers tap the tree to extract the sap.  They then heat and reduce the sap until it is very sweet and syrupy.

It’s a summer thing.

Moral of the story…He needs to stretch more come summer time I think.
