& # 39; If you call potato shells "potato cookies", you're just a loser, & # 39; according to a special Facebook page.

The card is posted on reddit and some users were convinced that they were right.

& # 39; Anyone who says anything other than potato cake IS A GOD PUNISHED CRAZY PERSON YOU STOP IT YOU DO NOT STOP NOW **! THIS IS VERY SERIOUS, & # 39; wrote a Reddit user.

& # 39; Cutting and frying something doesn't make it a cake! For cakes, you should crush the potato and mix it with something else and then mold it back into shape before cooking, & another user answered.

& # 39; Fritter and scallop shell describe both cutting things to pieces, and are more accurate and descriptive terms. & # 39;

& # 39; I am willing to admit that fritter is more accurate because it describes the whole process of cutting and frying things – it is literally the dictionary definition – while scallop is just a method of cutting. & # 39;

& # 39; Look … I'm fine with calling it a potato pie (although it's the stupidest thing I've ever heard), but calling it a potato fritter is a crime against Australia and you best believe ASIO is in close contact is and will be notified immediately if potato fritter is ever used to describe a potato shell, & another user joked.
