Hi

Earlier this week my friends and I (after the influence of some alcahol) where talking about what actually constitutes a round of toast? (ie. How many slices?) Anyway, I am trying to find out (TO prove some of them wrong) I decided it was how many you could fit in the toaster.

Any ideas?

I would say that it's however many you could fit on your plate without stacking them.

That actually makes sense, I think I have not decided that it a round of toast cannot be defined with a number.

I think you should have more to drink before thinking about the question any more...

Wouldn't a "round of..." be one for everyone at that location at that moment??? Such as a round of drinks for [insert variable here]... It could be a table, at the bar, or everyone inside the bar (i.e. the house). In other words, a round of toast for my friends, would be one slice per person... That help any, or do you need a few more drinks??

i think it would be the toster idea, so a common round of toast would be 2 peices. now incorperating alpha's idea a round of toast would be 2 slices for everyone present.
ever notise how a serving of toast is always 2 peices?

Hmm, this sounds like a question for Talkie Toaster!

Talkie Toaster: Howdy doodly-doo!
Hemingray: Hi Talkie. We've got a question for you.
Talkie: Very well, but I have one for you first.
Hemingray: What's that?
Talkie: Would you like some toast?
Hemingray: .....should have seen that one coming...

Perhaps this is why 15 year olds shouldn't drink...

I think the answer is obvious... you can't have a "round" of toast.

Sure, a round of beers.

But not a round of toast.

You have slices of toast.

Only drunk people have rounds of toast. When you're drunk you can't count properly anyway, thus defeating the purpose of trying to define how many slices constitutes a round of toast in the first place.

A Round of Beers, one for each person, makes sense. A Round of Toast is non-definable

Two rounds would also be a "double tap"...

a round of toast - it must be a british thing - because its not something I'm familliar with.

Even with the *answer* - could you use 'a round of toast' in a sentence to put it into context?

How about "The drunken nit's (Brit's) couldn't stop trying to define a round of toast."

actually if you think of the absurdity of the question and its relation to food, I'm thinking the drinking isn't what they were doing........
