"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?"

    What other ways are there to pronounce them? :S
    "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.

    Quote
    A parrot has been taken into custody in northern Brazil following a police raid targeting crack dealers.

    According to reports in the Brazilian press, the bird had been taught to alert criminals to police operations in Vila Irmã Dulce, a low-income community in the sun-scorched capital of Piauí state, by shouting: “Mum, the police!”

    The parrot, who has not been named, was seized on Monday afternoon when officers swooped on a drug den run by a local couple.

    “He must have been trained for this,” one officer involved in the operation said of the two-winged wrongdoer. “As soon as the police got close he started shouting.”

    A Brazilian journalist who came face to face with the imprisoned parrot on Tuesday described it as a “super obedient” creature – albeit one that had kept its beak firmly shut after being “arrested”.

    “So far it hasn’t made a sound … completely silent,” the reporter said.

    Alexandre Clark, a local vet, confirmed the parrot had not cooperated: “Lots of police officers have come by and he’s said nothing.”
