For those not familiar with the term a piece is a sandwich, pieces when pluralised.. and usually amply buttered

       No. Pancakes have suffered enough.
Sgt Teacup, Sep 02 2019
  

       Are we talking about a pancake being what people who would call a sandwich a piece would call a pancake or are we talking about some other more southern type of pancake?
calum, Sep 02 2019
  

       I have some spare commas around here, [calum]. Would you like Oxford or regular?
Sgt Teacup, Sep 02 2019
  

       <off topic>The lack of commas is intentional as I am attempting to redress the comma flooding I inflicted on the halfbakery around 2009-2011.</off topic>
calum, Sep 02 2019
  

       But, but, off topic is what HB does best!   

       To avoid comma flooding in future halfbakery use [calum], I have supplied you a link. I'm certain that there are no statutory limits on lifetime comma use, but now you have backup if any 'Baker gives you a hard time, especially if you're properly using your commability.   

       GrammarGirl also has information about using a period (full stop) to end a thought or idea, for example.
Sgt Teacup, Sep 02 2019
  

       That is also good at stopping conversations.

       People seem to have stopped using semi-colons; The resulting surplus of semi-colons means that there are plenty of these to use, if you've run out of commas.
hippo, Sep 03 2019
  

       But what do you do with the top half of the semicolon ? Won't you just end up with a heap of unused dots ?   

       Next thing, the oceans will be filled with billions of dots, like microplastics only worse; shame on you for suggesting it, [hippo].

       So, if I understand correctly, the entire idea here is to have a sandwich and a pancake for breakfast? I mean, the entire idea is just that?
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 03 2019
  

       "Pipe and a crepe? No? Bong and a blintz?... Well, then there ish no pleashing you."   

       //So, if I understand correctly, the entire idea here is to have a sandwich and a pancake for breakfast?//
You do not. The idea is that the sandwich filling is a pancake, rather than a separate comestible. The term "piece and" translates roughly to "sandwich, the filling of which is".

       It's not his fault, he's from scotchland and he doesn't speak the language very well.

       'Hamish, You'll have had your piece.'   

       'Dougal, don't be so impertinent!'

       // Next thing, the oceans will be filled with billions of dots, like microplastics only worse;   

       Naah, you just get a printing press, put it into water, and run it in reverse, get lots of bin bags though.
not_morrison_rm, Sep 04 2019
  

       Wouldn't the important sugar-in-lemon-juice solution get leached into the toast, leaving the pancake disappointingly bland and rubbery?
pertinax, Sep 04 2019
  

       // disappointingly bland and rubbery //   

       That's the mission statement of Mcdonalds New Product Development, yes, and by pure coincidence the rallying cry of the Liberal Democratic party.
8th of 7, Sep 04 2019
  

       So is it interpreted as "piece [of bread] and <filling>", the whole of which comprises a sandwich (if you fold the bread piece around the filling, anyway)?
notexactly, Sep 19 2019
  

       [nessiehunter] I thought “piece” was 11:00 to 11:15
Frankx, Sep 19 2019
  

       Given that it's Talk like a Pirate day...   

       Pieces of eight   

       Arrrrr
