Caz, don't start us on the cob one.....

If you go as far north as Doncaster they don't know what a cob is, to the m it is a bread cake, go to Derby and it is a bap but in Nottingham it is none of them and they don't have a clue what you are talking about unless you ask for a roll. This all came to light one morning when I popped to the sandwich shop just down the road from the office for a sausage cob.... they said you mean a sausage roll, it got very confusing after that and I decided from that day on i would have bacon!

:lol: :lol: And they wonder why us Brits don't bother to learn foreign languages!

So, how do they distinguish a sausage roll (with pastry) from a sausage roll (with bread) ?
