Overheard While Beertending...

A Server looking at a foil-wrapped packet of throat lozenges turns to the kitchen to find out how "lozenge" is pronounced.
Sober Cook says" Lah-sench."
Server asks "Lah. Cinch?".
Sober Cook repeats "Lah-sench."
Server says "Oh, Lah, cinch".
Underage Drunk Cook irritably blurts "God, learn to proNOUNciate, alright!".
