I can always count on brits_americans
for my daily dose of 'let's perpetuate some stereotypes'. Most of it leans toward two theses:
1. Brits are awesome, have more highly developed taste buds and are all around healthier, happier, and smarter people. But everyone drinks tea nonstop.
2. Americans are barely acceptable, have poor taste in everything from flooring to sandwich bread, and are on speaking terms with Bush/personally responsible for all the ills in the US policy. But they have good teeth.
I usually stay out of the fray, viewing the whole thing as a large intarweb spectator sport.
But, they disparaged the biscuit.
American biscuits are tasty and easy to make. If you can't agree with both parts of that statement, you're either celiac or you've never had a real biscuit.
On this point I stand, and I cannot be moved.
As I stated elsewhere, if you don't believe me...come have a biscuit in my kitchen and tell me they aren't good. I dare you.
