Gotta Talk more Gooder English

The only one that I know I got wrong was ague, which I thought rhymed with plague, rather than plague you.

Pardon me, I'm in quite an advanced state of refreshment; to paraphrase our dear Carruthers.

I'm told that Looga-Barooga, sorry Loughborough, is the one visitors from across the Atlantic struggle with most.

As for 'ague' - you should keep up with your Shakespeare and 'Twelfth Night' (season appropriate) featuring the pale and blond Sir Andrew Aguecheek.

We have a Worcester Township in Pennsylvania, and it's pronounced incorrectly. But in Worcester, Massachusetts, it's pronounced properly.

Ah, you know, I only mentioned it because I'm always annoyed that the people of Worcester Township are somehow saying it wrong.

It makes them sound like county bumpkins, and they live in $5,000,000 homes.

When you live in a half million dollar home you're entitled to say it any way you want. Just ask them.
