Church Tour Guide:Â “I hope you’re having a wonderful time at our 39th annual Greek Festival here at the Greek Orthodox Shrine Church of St. Nicholas in Flushing, Queens.Â I’m so glad that you have taken the time from the festivities outside to come take a tour of our beautiful church.Â I will be your guide.Â Feel free to interrupt me at any time to ask a question about the church icons, church practices, or anything else you might want to know about Greek Orthodox culture.”
Neil:Â “I have a question.”
Church Tour Guide “Yes?”
Neil:Â “Last week on Twitter a couple of us were arguing over whether gyro is pronounced “gear-o” or “year-o.”Â Which one IS the correct pronunciation?”
It’s Year-O.Â Case Closed.
