Wrong wording

My friend works on an online bingo site as a room moderator and was just chatting to her roomies.  They were talking about food, Manchester Tarts to be precise.  She wasnt too sure what they were so asked the following:

'DO MANCHESTER TARTS HAVE BANANAS IN THE BOTTOMS'

oooooooops!! Maybe word it a bit differently next time.

No was my answer!!!!!!

Ah a custard tart with bananas in the bottom is in fact a banana custard tart (AKA 'banana custard' in Yorkshire, where we like a little pastry with most things.)

(Just in case they don't delete her post.)
