Thread inspired by a conversation between me and ctb about the cheese roll that he had.

I was confused as to what it was, and I assumed it was what I call a muffin.

This confused him even more.

We eventually came to the conclusion that we were talking about the same thing [through diagrams over msn ]


The question is: what other items have different words for them in different countries of regions?


I'm sure people in the US call muffins biscuits but our biscuits are the US's cookies >__>

Simple thing:

The Cheesy Bread Roll
A bread bun with melted cheese on it
My God, they are orgasmic.

Just mentioning buns and bread makes me think of the Cheesy Bread Roll and my mouth waters like a small African child with rabies.

Reva, you watch my film yet?

Americans call people clever while the rest of the world uses the word stupid.



hahahaha

I can laugh at that because we Americans recognized the inferiority complex most of the world has. Everybody hates on the man in charge.

Go USA
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!

I'm not sure about an inferiority complex but the rest of the world does have more than one brain cell each.

i think americans call rolls biscuits. Also we call pants underwear were as yanks call would think of them as trousers. Also what we call is what they call precious oil field to save our economy.

I call them rolls.

My family call them either barms or baps, due to them being from Liverpool/Manchester.

A roll is the oblong thing

A bap is a soft round thing

A cob is a crusty round thing.

That's my logic anyway.

Those things are just horrible. The "cheese" tastes nothing like cheese for a start...

Yeah I call the oblong ones finger rolls, but soft or crusty; a muffin is a muffin to me

You call those muffins?

I thought muffins are those things that have a kind of spongy consistency to them, often with flour atop them - Á la McDonalds Sausage + Hegg McMuffin


Edit:

I'd like to give you a definitive guide to bread products, but google image isn't very useful - It seems it's a purely regional thing. When I searched muffin it kept coming up with cake muffins and, unsurprisingly, a search of 'cob' produced pictures of Alexi Laiho and Co.


Meh.

The top one is a cob, although I tend to call them crusty cobs.

The second is a bap, however roll is acceptable. I tend to think of a roll as a finger roll though.
