Another Word I Like...

Gorgonzola

Although I'm torn because
I'm not sure if,
rather than pronouncing it
gor-gun-ZOH-lah,
it wouldn't sound
better as
gor-GAHN-zoh-luh.

YES! I love that word too!

I freaking love gorgonzola. I may name my first kid that, in fact. I guess I better get busy knocking up Gwyneth Paltrow since she's the only one who would let me saddle my kid with some ridiculous food-associated handle.

I think it sounds like a Godzilla monster villain and it's of my opinion it tastes like one too. ICK! Cheese should never be blue, that's my opinion.

Love the blue stuff. Used to be I would never eat it, then one day, BOINNNGG , I start thinking, Hmmmm, I'd like me some gorgonzola. Don't know why, maybe a hormone shift.

Well, to paraphrase Grandpa Fred from "Sixteen Candles", "You don't prounounce it son, you eat it."

I like to say, "conspicuious", "obfusticates", and "padiddle" but none of these are a cheese.

It's actually pronounced Balucci's, but the 'a' is silent.

LOL at MCGone!

Good times.
I think the pronunciation is directly relative to which side of the trscks you reside.

Gorgonzola by any other name would still smell like feet.

Cormac Brown said...

In Italian, it would be "gor-gon." As in the creature that turns things to stone, as the cheese can do when it becomes overripe.

you ain't had gorg until you've had the gorg dressing from The Castle in Olean, New York.
