PENATESAlso known as DI-PENATES
Kitchen Store Cupboard Gods
There are lots of them. In fact you have your own PENATES which looks after your food and drink.
Ancient lore tells that the Penates live in the kitchen, hidden inside the dusty Christmas pudding which lurks mysteriously at the back of the larder. Never throw it away!
We expect they've branched out into fridges and freezers now. If you nip downstairs for a midnight snack they will know.
