the other dayin calss, I got bored so I wrote all the foods with different names (British to American). Here they are. No doubt there are mistakes or maybe some of it is regional, but here you go:

gherkin - pickle
sprouts - brussell sprouts
jelly - jello
chips - fries
crisps - chips
red sauce - ketchup
squash - concentrate ‘tang’ thing
courgette - zucchini
aubergine - eggplant
regular chocolate - dark chocolate (not always used, but would be about 45-50% dark, example being mcvitties digestives with 'regular' chocolate)
beetroot - beet
swede - rutabaga
fizzy drinks - carbonated drink
butty - sandwich
biscuit - cookie
scone - biscuit (think biscuit from KFC)
spag bol - spaghetti bolognese
lemonade - fizzy lemonade
bramble (often in bramble jam) - rasberries, blackberries
with juicy bits - with pulp
no juicy bits - without pulp
pasta - non-spaghetti shaped noodles
squirty cream - pressurised whip cream container
wax - hersey’s chocolate (hahahahahhahahhahahhahja but i’ts true)
chicken dippers - chicken nuggets
garden peas - peas
pancake - crepe (basically)
mash - mashed potatoes
cheese toastie - grilled cheese sandwish





that's what I got. hopefully there's some more and stuff

To be fair, an American pancake is very similar to a Scottish pancake.

If you ever have the misfortune to find yourself in Dundee, Elgin or Dunfermline, go here, and it will make your time there less awful.

Maybe "what 'merifags think brits call things" would be more accurate

I think we can all agree the world would be a happier place if we used whimsical names for things.

A butty is a sandwich but a sandwich isn't necessarily a butty.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

Juicy bits and squirty cream surely can't be real.

Yeah, I feel like Babby is just trying to get Americans to ask for squirty cream if they ever visit the UK

Polo is legit, Pimp C liked it. But nah, only the gays buy those fruity little shirts (I mean gay as in the happy definition, don't get triggered there bro)

In what world do British people not say brusel sprouts, ketchup, sandwich, spaghetti bolognaise, chicken nuggets or mashed potatoes?

I've also never heard someone say "red sauce" either.

Come to Glasgow.

Sauce is either "rid" or "broon".

If you go to Edinburgh, though, 'sauce' is just watered down brown sauce, because they're all fur coat and nae knickers.

Ah, never been to Glasgow. Although, brown sauce is still brown sauce...

Ew. Gherkin is the grossest word I've ever heard in all my days.

And I love pickles.

Ive never heard someone use the phrase fizzy lemonade so idk where you got that from. And also americans call pancakes pancakes because crepes are completely different. Also we do use gherkin, cause that's what small pickles are called.

Depends tho because over here these are pancakes:



As well as the American kind or whatever that you guys eat with bacon.

Crisps. I'll take a bag of crisps. Just munching on some crisps. I like dip with my crisps. These crisps are too salty. These crisps are too crispy.

This word pisses my ******ed American brain off quite severely. I beg of you all to never again repeat it and to remain sympathetic of my condition.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.
