Crumpet Strumpet book.

Debbie Lawrence - Just experienced Strumpets with Crumpets at Arcadia Festival in London on 0. 5.

A crumpet /ˈkrʌmpɪt/ (listen) is a small griddle cake made from an unsweetened batter of water or milk, flour and yeast, eaten in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, and some areas of the Commonwealth. Crumpets are regionally known as pikelets, a name also applied to a thinner, more pancake-like griddle cake: a type of the latter is referred to as a crumpet in Scotland.

A 1960s recording of comedian Frank Cardoe performing his song 'Someone Stuffed a Crumpet Up Me Trumpet'. This was later reworked, with different lyrics, by Cardew Robinson as 'Involuntary Trumpet'. This followed the theft of the sheet music, by an unknown party, from Frank Cardoe's dressing room.

As nouns the difference between strumpet and crumpet. is that strumpet is a female prostitute; a woman who is very sexually active while crumpet is a type of savoury cake, typically flat and round, made from batter and yeast, containing many small holes and served toasted, usually with butter.

"Pure magic! Frank has an original way with language. His sideways, off kilter look at everyday occurrences energizes his stories." -FRANK RUTLEDGE Frank Sobo's short stories resonate with adults everywhere who have lived life tongue in cheek. His career New York to Pittsburgh, Boston, London and Chicago as an award winning art director, director/cameraman, and author brings the snappy language of advertising into his tales. He colors outside the box to bring his readers the painfully humorous glimpses at youth, maturity and aging with the wit and wisdom of a man who has lived --- really lived his life.

It was either Frank Sobo(cienski) and/or Frenchy Fuqua, former running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who wore platform shoes with clear, hollow, plastic heels, which were filled with water and agitated goldfish. Although I can believe that Frank was the owner of such a pair of dandy shoes, it seems that he may have been simply admiring Frenchy's flamboyant wardrobe and wistfully waxing on about the benefits and joys of walking around while goldfish regurgitate incessantly in the miniature but violent tsunami that was created in the heels of those mid-1970's platform "disco" shoes. Neither of Frank's books of anecdotal chapters has covered this event, but it seems like a story that will appear at some point or another.

Lucky for us, Frank is an accomplished and critical observer of the human condition -- good and bad, sublime and ridiculous, absurd and practical. And, if you are one of the unlucky ones who have not heard Frank tell a story, which he is prone to do at the drop of the proverbial hat, reading "DNA Stew" and/or "Crumpet Strumpet" will give you a glimpse into the mind of a man who approaches life with a twisted sense of humor and an eye towards "screwing with you" as much as possible. Thankfully, political correctness does not have a place in Frank's world unless he is about to harpoon it in some humorous or sacrilegious manner.

A friend once told me that he was not equipped to write a good book or script because he was too young and that he had not experienced enough of what life has to offer, especially the bad or unfortunate events that are supposed to build character. Frank was born to report his experiences and observations, even if they are often figments of his distorted and rampant imagination. One thing is for sure: Frank certainly has a knack for telling a story and we are all lucky for that.

Crumpet Strumpet will make the feathers on a dove blush, and cause book-banners to faint before they can take aim. If you cannot take a joke, or laugh at yourself, or if you pretend you've never heard or said the seven things you cannot say on radio or T.V., then pass on this book and go buy "Little Women" (not that there's anything wrong with "Little Women"). However, if you enjoy the human condition, understand that even centerfold movie-starlets have to use the bathroom now and again, then this is the book for you. A collection of short stories and essays that defies pigeon-holing, Crumpet Strumpet, for all its in-your-face writing, presents a mature level of writing, story-telling, and insight into real life. It's the sort of book you read in short spurts, before bed, the train ride in, the work break. And it will cause you to poke an elbow into your buddy's rib and say, "I've got to tell you about this one." The piece "Umberto" lands in the center of pure brilliance. Last, the cover alone is worth the price of admission. My word, what people can make out of snow.
