, "Wooster" is a small college town in OH.*
Massachusetts residents might pronounce their second-largest city "Wooster" (more like "Woostah"), but it is spelled "Worcester". There is so much we don't understand about this state.
When I was a kid, I used to question my Mom constantly on why the condiment wasn't pronounced "wor-chester-shire". Drove that poor woman nuts.
We pronounced it "woor-shish-sure" in the Cleveland area.
David Bowie's son, Duncan Zowie Jones, graduated from The College of Wooster. A friend of our son's graduated from there two years after he did, and did know who he was. Everybody knew, since it's a small college of around 2,000. Em says that Duncan was just one of them, just another student. When David Bowie and his wife Iman visisted campus they were just another set of parents. Like, normal!
