Ough......
From Mr. P. H. Horner, Education Dept., Rolle College, Exmouth, Devon.
HOW DOES THE REVEREND OUGH PRONOUNCE HIS NAME?
It must be rather rough
to be addressed as Reverend Ough.
Or do you politely cough
and say, 'No, I pronounce it Ough'?
Yet if you lived in Slough
you'd be known as Reverend Ough.
While the priest by Irish lough
is addressed as Father Ough.
But I rather think it, though,
that you're simply known as Ough.
Still, I think I've said enough
Mr. Oh, Ow, Ock or Uff.
