It's not English, it's Persian.
It may have sounded Shuhruhz originally.

Anyway, don't call it names, drink it (or in Pauly's case: make it!).

The confederates were parading through Frederick, Maryland. Barbara Fritchie, an elderly union sympathizer, unfurled a US Flag from her second story window. The rebs took aim. But Stonewall Jackson, who was in command, stopped them, saying (at least according to the poem):

It bugs me that WS advices to pronounce 'Clos' as rhyming on 'go'. No need to find close rhymes - if you prounounce it "Claw" you're as close as you're ever going to get to the correct pronounciation. They've done it before, and I've complained to them before.
