To view "jam first" types with deep suspicion?

On scones, that is (was a tangent on another thread, inspired by someone objecting to the idea of coffee, not tea, with scones).

I'll take the tea point. But it's cream first on a scone, then jam. Yes, it's harder to construct, but that's part of the beauty of its creation. A healthy bed of rich clotted cream, atop which you delicately and lovingly rest a nestling dollop of rich ruby red jam.

That's a proper scone, surely.

no butter ('tis vile)
a spoonful of jam spread on a plain scone, lightly toasted
then cream. Clotted or whipped, don't care.
(the thought of a huge spoonful of jam on the top...bleurgh)

And coffee.
Milky and strong.
I don't drink tea.

Scone --> jam --> --> cream

Now fuck off with your scone talk. I'm on a diet tomorrow. I am not going to bake scones till next summer.

First spread the jam in a deep and even layer.
Then top it with a big blob of cream.

Jam is always spread, never blobbed or dolloped. You simply can't spread jam on top of a decent dollop of cream - it just smears it all together into a nasty mixture.

I'm sorry but actually its butter, jam, cream.

Thank you, I have spoken.

Which ever way you can't have butter!

the opinion of everyone's stomach:
"I don't care, it's all the same for me!
and why is Mouth talking and not doing its more important job of feeding me? what the heck is goin' on?"
