But That's How We Say It!


We were enjoying live music and a $1.95 pint of Brrr at Caruso's the other evening when this little menu caught my eye. Besides the random capitalization, the cheese choices for the garlic bread put a big smile on my face. :) I completely understand how one could misspell parmesan. Don't our schools teach kids now to sound out words and spell them like they sound? Dictionary.com says it's pronounced pahr-muh-zahn. Some folks though pronounce it par-ma-sean... oh my... that's what the menu says! Parmasean!

I'm seeing a trend with Caruso's. First there was spagetti. Now there's parmasean. What's next??? Bred? Soop?
