Aren't chips more like what we call steak fries? They are literally big chips of potatoes fried up, not the shoestring cuts we call french fries.

The British still aren't sure what an American southern buttermilk biscuit is. The word "biscuit" confuses them in the first place, and then the very nature of the bread is confounding to them. It's soft, crumbly, buttery, and salty. It doesn't go with tea. It doesn't go with most British cooking (indeed, the southern-style biscuits would be the tastiest part of some meals in this case!) and I'm pretty sure the Brits are entirely unsure what a good biscuit is like when it's submerged in gravy (be it sausage or chicken).

In describing these delicious things to Brits, they almost always say, "Oh, it's like a scone, then?"

NO, it's not like a farking scone! It's BETTER, you heathens! How could you not know what a real biscuit is supposed to taste like? It's not a dinner roll. It's not pizza dough. It's not a scone. It's SUPPOSED to be crumbly and flaky, but soft and preferably warm.

And no, those Pillsbury things in the can are not biscuits. Not really. They're almost like weird layers of filo dough.

What the hell do you guys eat with your Kentucky Fried Chicken?!?!

Yes that is correct. Chips are thicker than fries.

Biscuits in the UK are what are known as cookies in the US.
