What actually constitutes as a croissant?
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

if I was asked to describe the halfbakery logo in as few words as possible, I would say half a croissant. As I'm sure a majority of you would.

However, a croissant is derived from crecent, which is traditionally defined as a quater-moon shaped object. so half a croissant would be what exactly? I suppose an 1/8 moon.

what would it look like?

[1] a regular croissant but twice as thin?

[2] or half a croissant like the one in the upper-left corner of this page?

I think we need to define, and name the half-croissant to evade ambiguety.

       You are asking for the specific weight of a croessant. This factor is undeterminable. A whole croissant is one that is in complete form. A thin croissant is still a whole croissant regardless of weight. Is is not until the shape of the croissant is altered (via cutting in half, or eating in half) can it be a half croissant.
