For Suse

This post is for the benefit of Suse, Mrs Pea Soup, who kindly thought of me in her June 15 post (http://peasoupoftheday.blogspot.com/). She was wondering what the word “Gorgonzola” would sound like in an Edinburgh accent. She was having an uneventful day, I imagine.

I thought I should oblige. I had to rope in some technical assistance. Sirius provided the eye candy.

  9. Wonderful! I am shrieking with laughter here too. You all sound perfect. It is the thought of the 3 of you standing there reciting the names which has me in stitches! Maybe we should try some more subjects too!

  16. Beautiful. Somehow the cat goes with the cheeses.

    My Grandma came from Aberfoyle and I reckon she would have rolled the R in Gorgonzola just a bit. 55 years in Australia didn't wreck her lovely Scottish consonants and vowels at all.

  20. ...and if you're thinking of starting a series, I'm sure the two doctors of your house reciting diseases would be most excellent!
