Good day Purple People, we hope you’re all enjoying some summer sun and using your umbrellas the old fashioned way as we dive, this week, into the weird and wonderfully wordy world of James Joyce!

Whether you’ve read Ulysses, are feeling particularly uxorious or are listening while peloothered, we’re here to ringroundabout you with joy.

Gyles tells Susie how the sausage got made, Susie explains why a hobbledehoy is adorable, while showing our Purple People how impossible it is to not botch-up the pronunciation of Bababadalgharaghtakamminarronnkonnbronntonnerronntuonnthunnt-rovarrhounawnskawntoohoohoordenenthurnuk. Go on- we dare you to try! 

Elsewhere we remember Ireland’s fabulous literary history and discuss the banning of books, before answering your purple post.

Susie's Trio:

Twitterty-snip- State of nervous apprehension

Spumescent- frothy or foamlike

Gallimaufry- hodge-podge, jumble or mess
