'Salty Harrumph'
She was born in 1898 in a barn. She died on the thirty-seventh floor of a skyscraper. She's an astronaut.

I guess. A headache is temporary and reversible, whereas Brexitoma is probably permanent.

A butty is just a sandwich in general tbh, doesn't matter whats in it.

There's a whole other thread here on North/South divides that I think might be lost somewhat on our transatlantic cousins.

Remember if she doesn't shave it's a whisker biscuit!

If a cookie is chewy, a biscuit is crunchy and crumbly

A butty isn't just a northern thing. We have them in Wales too. There's debate over what constitutes a butty. I usually only refer to it as a butty if it contains bacon. If ham/cheese etc it's a roll. Burgers go in a bap or a bun. A sandwich is two or more slices of bread.

Of course in Wales a butty or butt is also your friend "he's my butty" or "oh butt, what's occurring?"

I stand by Theresa May and you should too. That is our prime minister elected or not just like our Queen. The general masses always want more and more democracy. Due to excessive benefits with the underclass/working class people, too much democracy would be dangerous as these people would have opinions that would be dumb - not good for the middle classes like you and me.

Woah now, you call a Cheese & Ham butty a roll? I thought a roll was just something really northern people used to refer to a bap/bun?
