    Factoid:

    The Cornish Pasty is crimped around its edge and has an extra large crimped knoggin on one end. This was so that the tin miners, who were often in areas laced with poisons in the rocks, could hold the pasty and eat it down to the crusty noggin which was then discarded.

    Is this about the jam first/cream first argument, in which case it's jam first with cream on top; it's the only civilized way.

    Correct. It’s almost impossible to spread jam onto a blob of clotted cream, the whole lot can slide off.

    As for how the word SCONE is pronounced? That’s a whole other argument.

    It's Brits
    and these are our concerns;
    1. The weather (it's either too cold, too hot, too wet, too dry, too windy or too unseasonal)
    2. Civil War
    3. Johnny Foreigner
    4. The World Cup
    5. Food shortages. (Marmite or biscuits)

    This disturbs me greatly sir.

    Civility actually demands that the jam goes on top of the cream, and that the calibre of a gentleman is determined by how dextrously he accomplishes this.

    Don't even get me started on rice pudding...

    YES!
    How is it that hash browns are now considered to be a part of a traditional English fried breakfast?
    It's a disgrace.No wonder the country has gone to the dogs.

    We also have an innate and inherited ability to take the p**s out of ourselves, and actually quite enjoy doing it.
