"How do you pronounce the words food and good?"

What other ways are there to pronounce them? :S

    Best description of trousers ever:
    "the outer garment for the lower half of the body, with individual leg parts reaching to the ankle"
    :lol

    I did the quiz myself, and as a non-native speaker was "Way off. Your answers didnt fit here at all" - which makes sense. Most overlap with the south, Cambridge and Bath as the closest fits.

    "How do you pronounce the words food and good?"

    "Food" has a long vowel [fu:d], "good" has a short vowel [gud]. ;)

    Dutch civil servants have been warned off dancing in their staff restaurant for fear that the floors of their renovated building (Rijnstraat 8) might not take the strain.

    The foreign ministry has circulated a memo saying safety concerns mean they should also avoid over-stacking photocopier paper and placing a second row of chairs around conference room tables

    Please tell me today is the equivalent of April Fool's Day in the Netherlands.
