How do YOU say it? Let us know.

Thank you (& credit) to @AdamCSharp@twitter.com for inspiring these fun conversations!

I didn’t think they could successfully reintroduce large, semiaquatic rodents of the genus Castor into a north London river. But someone sent me Mike Nesmith from the Monkees’ blurry photo of a female near Tottenham Hale. Then I saw her face, now I’m a Lea beaver.
