eddie izzard is a hilarious, occasionally cross dressing comedian, who once did a sketch about the differences between british and american word pronunciation. “You say aluminum, we say aluminium. you say BAY-zil, we say BAH-zil.” and then the beautiful conclusion: “you say ‘erbs’ and we say ‘herbs’ . . . because there’s a fucking ‘H” in it.” i laugh every time. thank you eddie for your weird, inimitable, askew perspective on the world.
