    I wish I could tell you otherwise but yeah, pretty much. A world without tea is one I couldn't bear.
    Fine then, this is the last time I speak to you!

    Enjoy fueling your caffeine addiction. I have cake though, and cake is much better than biscuits.

    Hm, I feel like that's a whole other debate. I love cake. ****ing love it. With tea though, I'm not sure they have the right texture to stand up to it.

    Dunk everything. Digestives? Dunk. Bourbons? Dunk. Maryland cookies? Dunk. Custard creams? Dunk. Tea Biscuits? Now that's an easy one!

    It's a shame you can't have any of my cake then!
    Don't posh people have cake with tea when they have Afternoon Tea though?

    The problem I have is I see how many dunks the biscuit will hold, and it is the last dunk when the biscuit breaks and turns into a soggy mess at the bottom of the tea that puts me off dunking, and for this reason; I dunk no more

    But it should be a sturdy biscuit, like a hobnob - a malted milk just broke and splashed tea all over my maths homework

    Why would you... I just... Don't even... Why?!

    Who wants a soggy biscuit that has potential falling to the bottom of the mug and ruining the tea?!

    I have never understood why people dunk their biscuits.

    They do, but I just don't think an eclair goes that well with a cup of tea. I'd sooner have a can of irn bru.

    Oh okay. I don't like Irn Bru either. Posting on here has made me realise how fussy I actually am.

    I thought you said you considered studying in Scotland? It's actually a pre-requisite. What happens here is when symptoms of extreme hangover are presented, irn bru is prescribed. It's like... it's our culture.

    It would have been a wasted application then, wouldn't it. I can't quite pin-point what is wrong with it, there's just something wrong...
    In Wales, sheep shagging is our culture.

    But you have to be careful not to dunk for too long otherwise you'll lose half the biscuit but for too short and the biscuit will not be softened and moistened enough.
    It's a very fine art if you ask me!

    Indeed it is an art form. If there hasn't already been a PhD thesis on the perfect dunkability then someone needs to do that. As soon as possible.

    Firefox has red underlined 'dunkability' but that's definitely a word.

    It depends on the biscuit. Normally I don't do it, but there are ones which I would dunk into tea.
