When ex-doctor Harry Hill was asked, "What's the funniest part of the human body?" he replied, "It's undoubtedly the arse".
It's on that basis that I justify bringing up the topic of this well-known medication for the treatment of piles and my only reason for introducing the topic is that, a few moments ago, I saw an advert on TV for this product.
I was amazed that the voice-over pronounced it "AN-yoo-sol" because, ever since I first became aware of its existence many decades ago, I'd assumed the pronunciation was "AY-nuss-ol".
In fact, nothing and nobody in the world is ever going to convince me that when this product was first created, it wasn't pronounced "AY-nuss-ol". It had to be pronounced like that, didn't it? I mean, it just had to be.
I'm sure many BCG readers will have bought this product at some point in their lives or, at least, discussed it with someone else.
How do you pronounce it?
