More correctly called 'biscuits' in British English. The tangled web of language goes something like this, as I understand it:

- What they call cookies, we call biscuits
- What we call cookies, they call cookies
- What they call biscuits, we call scones
- What they call scones is simply an abomination...
Yeah, I know. Isn't it amazing how the population that speaks English manages not to understand eachother on regular basis? And yet they think it should be the world's common language. ROFL.

You guys rebuilding the Tower of Babel?
