They Rhyme With “Stones”

American scones have been much maligned by Brits and by health nuts. Both groups decry them for their high sugar content, their dense texture, and their frequent inclusion of ingredients you might find in a kitchen-sink cookie. “Does anyone actually like American scones?” someone asked not long ago in, of all places, a Web forum devoted to gaming. The ensuing seven-page discussion quickly devolved into a cultural pissing contest between the Atlantic’s opposite shores. But no one bothered to challenge the original poster’s description of American scones as “dry bland ass triangles of nothing.”

Whoever started that discussion has obviously never been to Utah.
