Scones or scones? Mar 31, 2014

The picture labelled "American biscuits" does look very much like British scones (usually pronounced to rhyme with "bones" or "prawns")... Definitive proof of the pudding (for me) would be in the texture. Biscuits should be crisp and/or crunchy, unlike scones.

F-words are rude. Mar 31, 2014

Is swearing in a discussion of the same old topic supposed to be funny? Not to me.
