Cobblers

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 29 April 2021 20:58 (one week ago) link

from British American colonies

bobo honkin' slobo babe (sic), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:02 (one week ago) link

yeah it shouldn't be on here really, I just wanted to say cobblers.

jury, please do not vote for the cobbler.

(xp) Ah the good old days before all that unpleasantness.

Authoritarian Steaks (Tom D.), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:03 (one week ago) link

dunno why it's on the Wikipedia page actually, maybe some guff about it being "ethnically English" or sth

Does Manchester have especially friendly tarts?

sharpening the contraindications (Aimless), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:11 (one week ago) link

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:15 (one week ago) link

Are we voting for best name or nicest btw

imago, Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:20 (one week ago) link

Because fuck me potted shrimps are good

imago, Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:20 (one week ago) link

This is probably a can of worms and I'm far from an expert on the subject, but including a word that's arguably an ethnic slur for the Roma is kind of iffy, no?

Tahini Coates (Leee), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:26 (one week ago) link

couldn't decide between a savory and a sweet. voted for the clanger.

sharpening the contraindications (Aimless), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:27 (one week ago) link

xp hm yeah maybe. it's a real thing though

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gypsy_tart

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:28 (one week ago) link

I assumed that it references a real thing, but maybe next time don't include it in a poll that's mostly for the lulz?

(Spotted dick ftw btw.)

Tahini Coates (Leee), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:34 (one week ago) link

yeah soz didn't think about it as I was copying across anything that sounded rude.

lardy cake for me

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:35 (one week ago) link

No bakewell pudding?

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:57 (one week ago) link

wasn't funny enough

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 29 April 2021 21:58 (one week ago) link

You mean you couldn’t imagine a Ronnie talking about giving a Manchester tart a bakewell pudding.

American Fear of Scampos (Ed), Thursday, 29 April 2021 22:03 (one week ago) link

Knickerbocker

flagpost fucking (darraghmac), Thursday, 29 April 2021 22:47 (one week ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

Just some raw onion for the Ploughman's lunch

If you value Vox, we have an axe (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 30 April 2021 02:42 (one week ago) link

Ploughman's lunch is bland, dispiriting and unimaginative compared to just about every food item named in this poll.

sharpening the contraindications (Aimless), Friday, 30 April 2021 02:46 (one week ago) link

the jelly part of the jellied eel seems rough

If you value Vox, we have an axe (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 30 April 2021 03:00 (one week ago) link

I really love faggots

Call of Scampi: Slack Nephrops (Noodle Vague), Friday, 30 April 2021 09:55 (one week ago) link

will rep for cumberland sausage, pork scratchings and toad in the hole as good things to eat

Daniel_Rf, Friday, 30 April 2021 11:01 (one week ago) link

I had a queen of puddings not very long ago and it was delicious, though it doesn't sound particularly appealing on paper and the version on Wikipedia actually looks gross.

I took drugs recently and why doesn't the UK? (ledge), Friday, 30 April 2021 11:39 (one week ago) link

toad in the hole appears to be a "fuck it" sausage roll

If you value Vox, we have an axe (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 30 April 2021 18:48 (one week ago) link

so many of these are permutations of pie ingredients and sausage, where cumberland sausage is a limit -- 'what if the whole pie is sausage'

Local supermarket does a black pudding sausage roll that's quite tasty.
