WTF?

 

Get a hold of a Cocker Spaniel, tie this person down on a chair with a potty on his head, then pop his todger between two floury baps, and shout "Dinnertime, Fido!"

A combination of rolls, buns and baps. If it's a burger I'll call it a bun, if it's got bacon in it I'll call it a bap, if it's just regular other sandwich filler inside I'll call it a roll.

A cob or a roll.  However I go by:

 

Cob = Crusty.

Bap = Soft, maybe floury.

Roll = Finger "hotdog" roll.

 

But generally I will call that ^ a roll, even though I should call it a bap.
