Ok...SU and I have a long-standing argument about what a spatula is. Googling doesn't help because it seems to turn up both sides of the argument. So of course, I come to ask those wise ones from JL...what do you call a spatula?

To me, the thing that scrapes a bowl is a spatula...hubby calls it a scraper...this:


Hubby calls a spatula what I call a flipper or lifter...the thing that flips pancakes and such...this:


Which one is right? Or is this some sort of regional dialect...even though we come from the same place? LOL
