The 'Burnt Toast' Scale Is Sparking a Heated Debate on Twitter
Ever wondered what made Britain so great? From Stone Henge to Buckingham Palace to The Gherkin - the United Kingdom was built on and remains to be powered by toast.
What is the correct way to have your toast? pic.twitter.com/oRahjSDV0t- Imzy (@Imzy1991) February 25, 2019
Early start? Jam on toast. Broken heart? Cheese on the very same. Recovering from a tummy bug? It's the only thing you'll be able to keep down. But the nation's starchy sweetheart is currently causing controversy as a fierce debate has blown up on Twitter about just how toasted your toast should be (only in the UK, amirite?).
Twitter user, Imzy, kicked off the discussion and subsequently incurred the nation's wrath by posting a picture of nine slices of toast, ranging from barely tickled by the toaster to practically incinerated.
Imzy then asked their followers how they liked theirs - and with 1.3K likes and over 1.2K comments (at the time of writing) - some crazy strong responses ensued.
Twitter users responded to the tweet with their own preference.
Some have said five or six, others three or four. One woman even said nine, to which someone responded: "I've alerted the authorities."

One very passionate toast eater said: "Six and I will go to war about this."
Another user had a brilliant idea: "This could be a Dating Site Test. At least you would have that in common."
One person argued the case for each type of toast: "1 if you're in a hurry, 2 if you have to rush, 3 if you don't really mind, 4 if you do mind, 5 if you are serious about your toast, 6 if you like it cracky, 7 if you are lazy, 8 if you don't care, 9 you might as well stop having breakfast." You've thought about this way too much.
Some said it depends on the type of bread i.e sourdough or a toastie loaf.
One woman wrote how different meals have different requirements: "I use three when making a chicken sandwich but four or five for butter or soft cheese, and six for grilled cheese sandwiches."
To which someone replied: "She said toast not your life story!"
