It rhymes with bomb!

Scrummy looking scones

And another reason - Scon rhymes withs with bomb.

What if someone from a terrorist organisation phones you up and says "Hey up mate - there's a bomb in your basement!" and you mishear and say "A Scon! For me? Oh how kind! I am a bit peckish you know..." So you go down to the basement and try eating some Semtex explosive. Won't taste very nice and when it blows it will probably turn the colour of your walls to a nice shade of red.
