My bologna (pronounced Baloni- why? No one knows) has a first name.
My bologna has a second name.
I like to eat it every day.
And if you ask me why I’ll saaaay.
That Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A.
*sigh* --A flagrant example of how so few words can make such an impact.
The Bologna song.
Educative (I mean, it teaches kids how to spell Oscar Mayer, and Bologna- a much needed and valued capacity in today’s society)
and, most importantly it has withstood the test of time.
So, as you can imagine, I am outraged, I mean O-U-T-R-A-G-E-D that Daniel Bedingfield, the author of this little priceless piece of history, does not have his own Wikipedia the free encyclopedia page. We should start a petition.
P.S.- I did God or Google why we pronounce it 'baloni' in the U.S. and all I could come up with is that the Americans thought it sounded tastier. The real pronounciation is Balon-y-a. Like the town in Italy.
OH! and yes, in case you were wondering- the above blog post is what you get when Katie runs out of writerly topics to discuss. lol.
Have a great Monday!
