Naming Names

Hey, isn't that the asshole who wrote It Sticks in My Craw?
But one of the areas where conformity is appropriate is how your new countrymen say your name, since that's not something the rest of us can just ignore, unlike what church you go to or what you eat for lunch. And there are basically two options — the newcomer adapts to us, or we adapt to him. And multiculturalism means there's a lot more of the latter going on than there should be.
Golly I guess it's stuck there in his craw. May he choke on it.

My pet craw just died. I don't know how that multiculturalism got stuck in its pharynx.

If all the dirty foreigners assimilated properly, McCarthy wouldn't be able to make fun of their accents.

Not much on the wonder of word verif., but: "rashess."

I think I'd like to meet one. Patience & decision-making ability doesn't help my cause one bit.
