Americans are putting fruit and jam on Yorkshire puddings and it's making Brits angry
Yorkshire puddings are great, right? On a Sunday, in a nice proper pub, with roast beef, and loads of gravy. Or maybe at your gran's house. They are what makes Britain great.
Now the Americans have discovered them, and are ruining them.
The New York Times tweeted this week about a "large, fluffy pancake" you can serve with jam or fruit. But they aren't fooling anyone. That's a Yorkshire pudding.

Of course, Brits were quick to point this out.
I love Aunt Bessie's Fluffy Pancakes.

That's a Yorkshire pudding.
The recipe is older than America.

You've put icing sugar on your Yorkshire mate, must've run out a gravy.

First the chip butty, now the Yorkshire pub. What are they going to 'discover' next?
