What do you call this?

Funny feed on Twitter yesterday (no pun  intended) - but what would you call one of these. Huh

Lots of funny answers, but my favorite was 'Veggie Burger' and 'The last meal I would have before I died'

Me? It's a chip roll, innit.

Re: What do you call this?

@Shep41  It`s definitely a cob...... but ... I have to go with @nozzer   I would call it a chip butty...

 

Although the liverpudlians may dispute that cos it`s not chips between two slices of buttered bread...

That would be a chip sandwich @shutter but when somebody suggested that, the reply they got was "where are you from, Surrey?"

Funny

@Shep41 

I would hazard a guess that you were brought up in the Nottingham/Derby/Leicester areas? I'm from Nottingham and it was always a cob when I was a lad, but nowadays it's a butty. None of the young ones know what a cob is!

A chip butty for me would be one slice of buttered bread folded over the chips to hold them in better.  Wink

@shutter 

Who are you calling a posh Welshman? 

I'm English and damn proud to be one... but then I guess living in Wales that would make me posh! Wink

As for butty of course it's a sandwich (jam butty anyone?) I was just referring to what it might be called in Surrey.

 

PS. What do you call a posh wedding in Wales? - Getting married, and not ever pregnant! Funny

What! You have cake and you're not eating it. But that's the norm I suppose. Smiley

Re: What do you call this?

I'd call it a chip butty too, and if I had a narrowboat, I'd have an un-powered companion boat I'd name Chip too... Grin

 

 

 

 

("Butty" is also a term for a boat that is towed or tied up to the side of a powered boat, and thus butted-up against it)
