Life in Penistone: Not as hard as you’d think

The International Herald Tribune has an article about "titillating" place-names in the UK. Of all the names mentioned, my favorite, I must confess, is Penistone in Yorkshire. From the article:
"It's pronounced 'PENNIS-tun,' " Fiona Moran, manager of the Old Vicarage Hotel in Penistone, said over the telephone, rather sharply. When forced to spell her address for outsiders, she uses misdirection, separating the tricky section into two blameless parts: "p-e-n" — pause — "i-s-t-o-n-e."

I've spent the past twenty minutes trying to come up with a great name for this post:

* Life in Penistone: Not as hard as you'd think ?

I'm sure that you guys can do much better.

Post your ideas in comments and I'll choose my favorite and rename the post accordingly.
