It's National Cream Tea Day and this time we end the age-old debate once and for all: How do you eat yours?

Did you miss an icon, or are you from an area with pronunciation unfamiliar to me?

shone = Shh-on, stone = St-own

also as mentioned above Scone = Sc-on, unless it's a place of venerated granite and then it's Sc-ooon, as in "Oooo, that's a nice bit of granite you've got there!"

As far as cream teas go, butter, then jam then cream, on a Cornish split. Battered and deep-fried optional, and only if you make it into a sandwich, otherwise the jam and cream try to escape in the heat!
