    Here is an MP3 recording (1.8 MB, 2 minutes) of a conversation between an aggrieved Welsh customer of the major UK supermarket, Asda, who is talking to one of their customer services representatives about a (frozen) pizza which he has just purchased from their store, and which he has found not to have any topping on it...

    It could happen!

    (A pizza with no toping.)
    (Someone who does not know the difference between the bottom of a pizza box and its top side.)
    (A pizza that was put into its box upside down.)
    (A pizza delivery guy with jet lag, just in from down under.)
    and
    (A pizza box box that should have been marked, "THIS SIDE UP".)

    I'm proud of myself! For once, I saw it coming... a few seconds into the recording. Very funny.

    Took you that long ??? I read BATcher's post and knew right away. I've done it myself with frozen pizza.

    This made me so nostalgic for Under Milk Wood that I downloaded the text from
    http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0608221.txt
    Hearing a decent reading of it is bliss, but it takes a bit of homework in advance. That little Welsh fishing village...
