The piece was written by an American poster on alt.usage.english, where the differences between merry/marry/Mary, cot/caught, and other vowel sounds are often discussed. I provide both versions because I used to use both equally; the first is nearer how I sound in polite company. :)

If I had been talking to the mums at the school gates beforehand, the second version and PGTW would be even broader...
