    Default I own that scone!/That scone is gone!: The Great Debate

    Finally, the question which has dominated culinary discussion in Britain for countless ages will be resolved.

    WHICH IS IT?!

    I actually say both, but I guess I say "own" slightly more often than not.

    I realise that people may sometimes say one, and sometimes the other. I'm like that as well.

    But, if I put a "both" option in the poll, this vital issue would never be resolved!

    I usually say the gone variation. But I've been known to say it the other way if I'm feeling particularly uppity.

    It's looks like this.


    They're generally eaten with clotted cream and/or jam.

    They may have raisins or sultanas in them. They might be sweet, or savoury.

    One should eat scones with cream tea.

    Warm scone with some butter on it is all I need. Leave your nasty fruit mush at home.

    Pick a side! There can be no compromise!

    Indeed, as I mentioned scones can be sweet or savoury.

    Cheese scones can also be eaten with clotted cream and jam, but I would generally have them with butter.

    80% gone, 20% own. That's the best you'll get from me!

    If you don't vote one way or the other in the poll, how will we ever resolve this issue which is tearing Britain apart?!

    HOOOOOW?!

    They look like biscuits. Hot butter and gravy is the way to go!

    AH HAAA!!! A Canadian who knows what biscuits are, and eats them with gravy. I knew they existed.

    I shall inform the girlfriend post haste.

    Also, I've always heard it pronounced "scown" so that's how I've always said it.
