    Of course it's a dressing gown and a cob is a cob
    A house coat surely is something you wear by an open fire with the kids around your feet sipping on a 40 year old malt and smoking a pipe..?

    I'll be honest, it's not an everyday issue for me.

    When I lived in Spalding for a summer (I wasn't always as glamorous as I am now) they called a pint of bitter a pint of "rough". Oddballs.

    - Dressing gown.
    - That's a roll, not a bap (flat and floury). We don't do cobs down here unless they've got corn on.
    - Definitely a bundle rather than a pile on. You can't shout PILE ON! in the same way you can shout BUUUNNDDDDLE!

    My Mrs is Scottish and has the same issue as you. She calls it a fish supper, but has had a few chippy owners stare at her blankly when she's said that down here.

    As for 'housecoat'...

    You can't have roll. These two things are not the same.

    First one is a roll and sausage, second is a sausage roll. Both are a piece.

    What... you can't have a bread roll because sausage rolls exist? I normally have a lot of respect for what you say Dan, but...

    If that's a roll and you stick sausage on it, what are you asking for down the cafe...

    I'm not having a "roll and sausage", only Germans speak backwards language like that.

    Well, if they're a cafe that's doing sausages in a roll, similar to bacon in a roll, I'll ask for a sausage roll. Now it might be that they're fucking idiots and say "sorry, mate, try Greggs, we only do bread rolls with sausages in them" or they might understand what it is that they themselves serve. If, on the off-chance, they do both version of the sausage roll, I'll say, "sausage roll, please, the kind DW thinks doesn't exist" and they'll give me a knowing look and serve me what I require.

    I lived in York once. They call fish and chips "one of each" so if two of you go to the counter in the chippy you have to order "one of each, twice". I kid you not.

    Bread roll is all about proportions, a bap or cob is relatively circular or square with pretty equal width/length only if it is substantially greater in length than width would I use the term roll.
    If you see a Possum, try to kill it, 'kay, it's not a pet.

    Correct. You put hot dogs on a roll.

    Buns are purely a dessert in my book.

    In a leeds 'fish shop' (chippy) a serving of fish and chips is referred to as 'once' if you want two servings it's twice. If you ask for "2 fish and chips", you will get 2 servings of fish and one of chips. Oh and it's a breadcake (teacake around Denby Dale).

    Just got into nth is thread, but a "cob" is a circular bun of bread but it is crusty on the outside, like a "batch" loaf, not like a soft roll for burgers or hot dogs!
