Overheard: at an Austin nail salon

Large Texas woman talking to a Vietnamese nail tech: "Oh, this classical music y'all are playin' is Patchy Bell's Canon. It's from my weddin'."

Editor's Note: My brother lived in a Binghamton, NY neighborhood where all the streets were named for composers. One of them was called Bee- (rhymes with see) thoven Street. The h was not silent, either. (Details!)
