Is there a correct way to cut your morning slice of buttered toast?
Diagonally, so you get two triangles? Horizontally, so you get two short rectangles? Or vertically? Have you even thought about it before?
Hallamnation, a student club night in Sheffield which offers the carby goodness at the end of a night out, has put a great deal of thought into this conundrum and sparked a massive debate on Twitter.
Which way would you prefer our staff to do you toast at the end of a night?! pic.twitter.com/QKLUb5uX5x— hallamnation (@hallamnation) December 9, 2017
They asked: ‘Which way would you prefer our staff to do you toast at the end of a night?!’ with a picture of three slices of toast, each cut in a different way.
It seems like the British public are very passionate about their toast, with defence for each option, but it looks like #1 is coming out on top...
I still think if you cut your toast in triangles you get more toast https://t.co/IiLYpm6wpV— Fee (@_aoifegriffin) December 11, 2017
If you cut it any way other than 1 you will be blocked https://t.co/SkSz0BRx92— sandy claus,,., (@stylestaxi) December 12, 2017
There was some outrage about one particular option, though...
Imagine thinking youve falling in love with someone to then later find out that they cut their toast like number 3 https://t.co/yKGiJIkkQj— maddie (@trusmemaddie) December 10, 2017
under no circumstance is number 3 acceptable https://t.co/WzwNyDy5d4— (@dunkirkcurIy) December 12, 2017
#1 is the only way, #2 is just basic, & #3...what r u doing https://t.co/fBivc0HYPX— emilie belisle (@emiliebelislee) December 12, 2017
But then, some may argue - is there any need to cut your toast at all?
Come on, let's settle this! What is the correct way to slice toast? Vote below:
* Sorry/not sorry to anyone who prefers their toast cut into quarters, but there is simply no argument that could justify that sort of behaviour.
