Northern slang in general. :dread: Calling your evening meal "tea" instead of dinner. Makes it sound like your dinner is purely a cup of tea.


According to this, I am northern. :lol: I only use butty for chips between bread or a roll/bap though.

What would you call a chip butty? I always assumed it was a nationwide thing, do some areas call them something else?


I wouldn't have ever heard the phrase chip Butty if not for the Internet. I don't know anyone in real life who has ever tried one. I imagine chip sandwich would be the only alternative name, although chip Butty is probably a nationwide name that spread from the north, I just intensely dislike the word. I agree with Rightey, chips inside sliced bread is carbohydrate overkill. Carbicide. Also sounds like a helluva dry lunch.

I find that unbelievable. Chip butty is such a well known term, I have even seen them advertised in bars in America.

If you have never tried one, then you absolutely should. A good chip butty is amazing.

I wonder what Nintendo's policy is on bread in the fridge.

He is wrong, also sushi is a sandwich. (maki rolls only).

When you grow up with it, you learn to instinctively tell the two apart.


Because no one Northern would ever off you a cup of tea. It will either be a brew or a cuppa.

Apparently my parents were the exception.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.
