Commercial: On pasties

So. Pasties then. Lovely. Haven't had any in a while. But I might have to now, since soon the Cornish variety could be geographically protected.

And woe betide any of our Yankee friends who think that such a delicacy is a pastry. Like Stephen Dubner. Who, in making that error, also made the error of trying to correct the subeditors at The Economist.

Uh oh.

And a new law to note as well, in Dubner's post of repentance:

Muphry’s law states that “if you write anything criticizing editing or proofreading, there will be a fault of some kind in what you have written.”
