Today is Thursday, and on Thursdays in Sweden it is a tradition to eat pancakes. I ate 6 pancakes today. But this made me think about how many pancakes other people eat. So I googled, and this is what I came up with.
Here we can see that eating just a few pancakes is the normal thing to do, and that eating two pancakes is the most popular thing to do. Then there seem to be some who use 10 as a big number if they have eaten a lot.
However, I thought I had to examine this further. So I continued checking number of google hits. As I expected, 20 was the next big number for those who wanted to brag about how many pancakes they ate. But then nothing happened until 33.
Why is eating 33 pancakes almost as popular as eating a few? The answer is that a lot of websites writes that Olivia Wilde (known from House and Cowboys and Aliens.) once ate 33 pancakes in 20 minutes.
