You say tomato

It is mottos or mottoes,
Ghettos or ghettoes,
Can be cargos or cargoes
And mangos or mangoes.

Even banjos or banjoes
Or halos and haloes,
Tornados, tornadoes,
Volcanos, volcanoes.

Not heros, just heroes,
Nor potatos, but potatoes,
Never vetos, it's vetoes,
And tomatoes, who knows!

  1. I check English translations here in Finland. One woman refused to change tomatos to tomatoes because she thought the ending toes was off putting 🤣
