A British public school
tradition generally practised by the upper classes, in which a crumpet is super-heated, covered
, and thrust between the buttocks of a chosen schoolboy. Often used as an initiation
ritual. The crumpetee is expected to clench the hot crumpet between their buttocks as the butter
runs down their backside, burning them. Should they allow the crumpet to fall, a greater punishment is often chosen.
This tradition is also practised among young
gentleman's dining clubs
and junior commissioned ranks
of the military.
"I say, old boy! If Jenkins is to join this dining
club, I expect him to tolerate a jolly harsh crumpeting!"
