I just thought you should know.

I love the internet. Without it, who knows if I would ever have discovered this Very Important Fact:

"The combination “ough” can be pronounced in nine different
ways.The following sentence contains them all “A rough-coated,
dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough;
after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed."

Taken from this website, which I found linked on Dooce.
