silly BBC…

today’s episode of the Scotland’s Funny Bits podcast featured an interview with “Smokin’ Joe” Frazier, who lives in Beaufort.

that’s “Byew-furt,” not “BO-furt.” “BO-furt” being the pronunciation the trained BBC professional used.

and they make fun of us for not pronouncing things correctly. at least Geoff does. and he’s former BBC!

i think this gives me the upper hand in the “PYOOzho” vs. “PERzho” argument, actually.

quote of the day:

“To correct an Englishman’s pronunciation is to imply that he is not quite a gentleman.” – George Bernard Shaw
