I eat jalapano chedder crackers with my tea, and I have as many as I damn well please. A normal pack comes with six, an I always finish a pack, minus whatever my dog gets, sometimes one, maybe two.

They're British so that means they're wrong by default. I mean, the bastards don't even drive on the proper side of the road. IKR?

3-4 biscuits with tea

I hate when I dip my biscuit in my tea and half the biscuit falls in my tea, which then results in me not being able to drink the last few mouth fulls. If anyone cares.

If I do, just a couple... but that's usually at someone's house, when offered. At home I'm not the kind of guy to limit myself to a set amount. I keep eating biscuits until I decide that another would be a bad idea.

We let you borrow our language on the sole provision you'd use it sensibly, however as it seems you can't even do that properly we'll be confiscating it for a 2 week period.

To give you a better understanding of the true concept of the biscuit, please find below the taxonomy of the biscuit and where it lies in the competitive world of afternoon tea compliments:

To pick a number ideally suited for accompanying tea, well there are numerous factors to consider such as density, girth, flavour, quality and dunkability. Some perhaps less dense biscuit such as the Rich Tea can be consumed in volume without affecting overall appetite, however it's hampered by it's overall blandness. The aforementioned dense hob nob however (arguably the most sturdy of biscuits) is hard to resist when fused with tea, however after consuming half a packet and upwards the sense of satisfaction can turn into an acute sense of guilt - something it's rare to acquire when consuming rich tea biscuits - and an affected appetite when it comes to dinner time.

Overall, it's an extremely complex and delicate issue.

You think the English currently spoken in England is proper, what with the loss of the /r/ and other hard consonant sounds?

Actually, English didn't begin in England, it's a Germanic language. Celtic is an English-native language, so maybe you should be using that?

Of course its an amalgamation of languages. The English aren't even English. It's origins are irrelevant as we own the copyrights.

Then you've got some problems as current American English is closer to the British English spoken at the time of the colonies than current British English. In fact, many British visitors of note commented on the purity of the English language as spoken by the colonists.

How can you say that when you go around making up words, spelling things differently, coming up with concepts such as 'scones with gravy', misunderstanding the term 'Biscuit' and even though we asked you politely you drove on the opposite side of the road.

As a point of interest though, is that actually correct, that Americans speak a language that closer resembles that of old than us?

Yes, it's true. Current British English is heavily influenced by French (thus 'centre' instead of 'center') and consonants became softer and vowels became longer and less stressed ("bah" as a pronunciation for 'bar' for instance). Many pronunciations in English 'froze' in American English but have continued to mutate in England.

As different as American regional accents can be, they're still more closely related to each other than regional British accents.

Well bugger me senseless.

I would have thought French influence would stem from much further back when it was the official language of England.

It's that whole 'Lingua Franca' bit that's to blame; when the upper British class spoke French and the lower classes English.
