Well you're still wrong about teacakes! You got the size about right (though I reckon 6in is closer than 8 in). But if they've got currants in them, they're currant teacakes. The clue's in the name!!! Normal brown or white teacakes are just bread. I believe they originated in Yorkshire and only the currant variety was "exported" out of the county, so all you people who had the misfortune to be born outside [insert deity of choice or atheistic epithet]'s own county dropped the fructoid identifier and are just wrong, wrong, wrong :-P
