Nah man everyone just says jello, was just explaining why we say it. Kind of how Brits say Hoover instead of vacuum.

Okay so...
The guy that started Adidas was called Adolf Dasler, his nickname was Adi (rhymes with baddy)
He called his company Adi-Das.

My little brother came home from school a couple years ago, and said (at the table), "May I please have some of that *gelatinous substance* (Jello) ?" (which I guess they learned in science).
Everyone hooted, and it stuck. He will never live it down.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

RE: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
In the USA we make distinctions between fruit flavored goo in the following varieties, though I can't say I know exactly how each is defined:
1. Jello, or "gelatin dessert" if it's off-brand, as others have pointed out.
2. Jelly
3. Jam
4. Preserves

I don't know exactly where the dividing line is between what is considered one type or another but I think it has something to do with how much intact fruit matter is present in the solution. To my understanding jelly is a smooth uniform translucent consistency with no seeds or fruit pulp or tissue of any kind. It's highly processed and also easily spreadable. This is what's used in your traditional PB&J sandwich. Jam I believe may have seeds and small chunks of fruit pulp or flesh and a lumpier consistency and preserves may even have whole intact fruits in it. At least that's my perception whether that has any bearing on the actual classification system and etymology used by the Fruit-Flavored Goo Association of America or not is beyond me.

Y'all can call Jello Jelly if you want. Just like you can call anything that's for dessert a "pudding." Did you know that Jell-O makes pudding, too?

We call your jam, variously, jelly, jam, or preserves; different names for different preparation methods. Also we call some similar fruit-based products butter (apple butter, for example).

No, we don't call scones biscuits. Biscuits are lovely, flaky, light creations that accompany meals, and while you can have them with jam, you can also have them with honey or butter or gravy. They're served warm. They can be sweet or savory but are always yummy.

Scones are a specific type of pastry, dry, usually vaguely triangular, that people order and then don't finish (because there's not enough jam in the universe to make a scone delicious).

Interesting to know how Adidas was intended to be pronounced--blame whoever marketed it to the US for saying it in the other way in the ads--now I will get a bit of a thrill from saying it the wrong way.

RE: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
If I had to choose between a biscuit and a scone, I would probably choose the scone. Scones are yummy. Yes, they are dry, but that's why you usually have them with a warm beverage (coffee, tea, hot cocoa, etc.). Same goes for the Italian biscotti, which are also very dry -- and yummy.

Can I give this comment multiple thumbs up?

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

That's an awesome sandwich! Drooling Except leave out the Worcestershire sauce, that stuff is poison to my body- I'm allergic to some ingredient(s) in it.
