Stool Pigeon English

To relax, Bela swears by the boozing
But the fact is, he's wary of schmoozing
For his underlings laugh
At each blunder and gaffe
As his accent is very amusing.

Bela Lugosi makes a somewhat unlikely gangster in Black Friday (Arthur Lubin; 1940). Title by David Cairns, who hails from Scotland. David and I often find ourselves at odds over pronunciation, with our limericks adrift somewhere mid-Atlantic.
