hi there its russell here from across the pond.As someone once put it we are two nations devided by a common language. the other day i was thinking about all the words for food that mean one thing here and something else over there(america).
the ones i came up with were;
what we call jam you call jelly and what we call jelly you call jello.
what we call biscuits you call cookies and what you call biscuits we call scones.
can anybody think of anymore? and can somebody tell me what a twinky is?
thanks
russ
