Reminiscing about The Beano and regretting its demise I mentioned Dennis the Menace and Walter the Softie. My mate said he liked his dog G'nasher. I said 'what do you mean G'nasher...it's Gnasher...the G is silent as in gnat'. But he insisted it was G'nasher. We argued about it but couldn't agree, so I asked a passing boy the name of Dennis the Menace's dog. He said G'nasher.

I just walked away.

Ha...I'm reminded (and it dates me) of the old Flanders & Swan
song about the Gnu - which they used to sing with the G as in "gum": "I'm a ger-nu" - spelt gnu..."
For the unaware the creature is an oxlike antelope.

This poem is a bit out of date re leader of the Labour party, but does include a mention of Dennis, and Walter the Softy https://algebraofowls.com/2017/05/27/fine-and-dandy-by-greg-freeman/
