Being American and watching The Great British Baking Show
  • Them: Today you will bake a traditional *alien language*
  • Me: What is that?
  • Them: I made a traditional fruit version from Germany.
  • Them: I made a traditional meat version from "the south."
  • Me: But what is that???

so watching the great british baking show as an american is super interesting. because to me, this is pudding

like in america our pudding is in plastic cups ^^^

not like this lovely thing you call a pudding. this is goddamn beautiful

or to me, a muffin is like these delicious misshapen lumps

not these perfect fluffy pillows

another thing. im so confused about biscuits

this is an american biscuit

but a british biscuit is like a nice cookie? or a cracker? look at these dainty lil things. so. different.

okay lastly theres a big ol’ jelly mixup 

this is jelly in america:

but this is jelly in the uk

bruh id call that JELL-O

it BAFFLES me that these things are so different but have the same exact name
