    Tips are available all over. Still got one here from 40 years ago.

    That Scottish accent joke reminds me of another.

    An American tourist was in a London pub and he heard 2 obese women at another table speaking in an accent he had not yet heard.

    So he asks them: "Are you ladies from Scotland?"

    One of them responds: "Wales."

    To which the man responds: "Oh, I'm sorry. Are you WHALES from Scotland?" :o

    :s:)

    Nope, that's definitely a Simpson 260.
    Sitting on the shiny black surface makes it appear taller than it is
    Simpson 260 bet the farm on it.

    I'm totes willing to believe it's a Simpson -- there's one in the basement. B)
    I just think of the Simpson as curvier -- you know, more voluptuously streamlined. :)
    It does look like the bits are in the right places -- but the shape seems a bit different.
    Wish I had a better copy of the album cover image. Heck, wish I had the album! ;)

    He sure was an entertainer...no doubt about that! (I think he had a bit of British humor as well)

    I believe it was S.L. Clemens ("Mark Twain") who referred to the UK and the US as two countries divided by a common language.

    Back in my days workin' for a British company (Oxford spin-out/start-up), I experienced this at least twice, in gastronomic context.

    First time was gammon steak. I asked the server what it was, and they told me as best they could -- but it didn't make any sense, so I ordered it.
    ham

    Second time was aubergine. If I spoke French, I'd have saved myself this one.
    eggplant

    Actually, I guess it happened thrice -- but the other time, I figured out what rocket was for myself.
    arugula

    ... and we won't talk about black pudding, 'K? ;)

    Used to have ox tongue with a salad growing up. Very tasty.

    You really only scratched the surface. I have adjusted to U.S. terminology in the main, but still toggle between U.S. and U.K. terms when it comes to foodstuffs. How about bees and ees, wing wang, bubble and squeak or chipolatas?

    Might I suggest to compliment your oolong that you grab a nice handful of wing wang ?

    I might. 🤔

    The first time I realized I liked Indian cuisine occurred the first time I visited London and had a few English dishes, starting with bangers and the English version of scrambled eggs.
