Do you know the poem about

Doctor Foster?

I thought we'd end up talking about English place names, like Bicester, Gloucester, Cirencester, Leicester, Alcester, Worcester, Towcester and Rocester *, so I said "Yes :

Doctor Foster went to Gloucester
In a shower of rain..." and so on.

There came a perplexed look.

"He sold his soul to the devil."


* pronounced, of course: Bister, Gloster, Sister, Lester, Aster, Wooster, Toaster and Roaster.
