You say “potato”, I say “poh-tah-toe”…

We call it baked potatoes here.  In Jolly England it’s “jacket potato”.  I love this one from Sainsbury, its prawn mayo.  However the same thing got me sick at a mall in Manchester.  :)

“May I inquire your name, madam,” said I to my prospective landlady.
“My name is Mrs. ‘awkins, sir.”
“Mrs. ‘enery ‘awkins?” said I, jokingly.
“No sir — not ‘enry, sir — Hedward.”
-George W Hills, “The Noble Landlady”
