This I Believe #3

...that the word gorgonzola should no longer be pronounced gorgonZOla, because that sounds like the name of a cheese—how pedestrian!  Instead, it should be pronounced gorGONzola, which sounds like either the name of a monster from a Japanese movie, as in Godzilla vs. GorGONzola, or a synonym for gigantic, as in, "My God, that mole on her cheek is gorGONzola!"

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.
