The Gasso, if you prefer

My eldest son was out late partying the other night in Fitzroy and related how he and some mates had fetched up near the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood for some oysters and softshell crab shooters. He reports that his friends had not grown up with such devices on the skyline and so, not knowing what a gasometer was, they were pronouncing it ‘gasometer instead of ga’someter. Oh how we laughed!
