First, please greet your co-worker, Eric,
Who hails from the city of Berwick.
His friends call him ‘Anne’,
His enemies ‘Stan’,
But he answers to nothing but ‘Derek’.

First day of a new assignment, being shown the ropes via Internet link-up. Of course it’s ungracious to be pedantic, but Berwick is not, and never has been, a ‘city’ – and this blunder shakes my confidence in the other particulars imparted by my morning’s informant.
