With a Brit as a global moderator, and an Aussie leading the spam wars, it looks like the Commonwealth is trying to take over. We need to make sure there is not a Canadian mod as well or they might invade us.

Without question, an excellent choice.

I have a question.

 

Will there be crumpets with the inevitable tea brought by our new colonial governor?

 

—Alorael, who has actually eaten his first crumpet sometime in the last year. He wasn't quite sure what they were, but the real thing didn't disappoint.

Too late, we've got you surrounded. Bwahahahaha.

 

Congrats, Nikki!

Out of the night that covers we

Black as the pit from pole to pole,

We thank whatever gods may be

For his unconquerable soul.

 

In the fell clutch of circumstance

He has not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

His head is bloody, but unbowed.

 

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds and shall find him unafraid.

 

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

He is the master of our fate:

He is the captain of our souls.

Are they hard to get in the US? Whenever I've spoken to people in America about crumpets, nobody seems to have a clue.

 

Anyway, thanks everybody. First order of business: There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the "Millennium Falcon". You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegrations.

You can get crumpets in Canada, so you Americans just come on over. Note that the speed limits are in kph.

 

Canada: Come for the crumpets, stay for the poutine.

In America, they're usually called English muffins. Everyone in America knows what an English muffin in, even if they don't realize it's also a crumpet.

Upon further investigation it seems that I also need to acquire Scottish crumpets in order to fully understand the delicacy.

 

—Alorael, who was a bit surprised by English muffins being muffins there. Perhaps cookies should be renamed English biscuits for clarity. Savory English biscuits can be called American biscuits for parity.

How about Scottish pies and French and Ozzie Wine to boot? :)
