"THE CLARKIES PIE"
Things you do
Things you donít
Clarkies are built to stand on their own and donít need a foil tray to hold
it all together.
A world record for eating the most Clarkies in a given time has yet to be set
to my knowledge. My record for wolfing down a Hot Large Pie was set a number
of years ago just under 2 minutes but the pie was f**king hot.

My First Clarkies
I can remember it like
yesterday. I was mitching from school, which happened a
lot around this time with some friends, it was a hot day close to the summer holidays. We were
lying around the Marl Park in Grangetown about dinnertime someone
said they were hungry and wanted to get some chips. The fish shop was about to
close so we headed off but on our arrival at the fish shop it was shut but one
of my mate
said he knew where to get something to eat.
He knocked on is side door and asked
the man at the door if he could buy a pie, 'how many was his reply,' four. It was
not the first time I had saw the famous Clarkies but I never rated them I
believed a pie had to come with a foil tray. We handed over the money and in my
hand I had a pie with no foil tray. I remember it as hot and I burnt the tip of
my tongue also the pasty was so thick. It was a small pie and I was 14.
This was the first of many but it was not until I was about 16 at the Clarkies
became my official favourite pie.
