    21 Slightly Fucked-Up Things British People Do To Food

    We're quite weird really.

    1. Chip butties.

    2. Double decker chip butties.

    3. And of course the toast sandwich...

    4. Behold the Holy Trinity: lasagne, chips, and garlic bread.

    5. Putting beans on everything.

    6. Literally everything.

    7. Or having beans with little sausages floating in it.

    8. Eating very thin pancakes which are crispy round the edges and flabby in the middle, with just sugar and lemon.

    9. Eating a meal out of a Yorkshire pudding.

    10. Eating potatoes that have faces.

    11. Covering fish and chips in curry sauce.

    12. Eating a traditional curry and rice with chips on the side.

    13. Iced buns, which are basically hot dog buns covered in white icing.

    14. Scones with jam and a fuckload of clotted cream.

    15. While we're on the subject, "clotted cream" has to be one of the grossest-sounding foods of all time.

    16. Fried bread being an essential component of a fry-up.

    17. Dipping "soldiers" in egg yolk.

    18. And let's not forget the glory which is the crisp sandwich.

    19. Dunking a Rich Tea until it is soggy but doesn't collapse.

    20. Spaghetti, in hoop form, served on toast.

    21. And finally, covering everything – literally everything – in gravy.
