Today 28th February, is Global Scouse Day.

Scouse is a type of lamb or beef stew. The word comes from lobscouse, a stew commonly eaten by sailors throughout Northern Europe, which became popular in seaports such as Liverpool.  In fact it was so popular in Liverpool that Liverpudlians (people who live there) became known as Scousers.

To celebrate the Liverpool Echo has an online Scouse test.
