So I read this:

East Poultney Day this year is a lot of song and dance.

Shaped-note singing is back for a second year at the annual celebration of the town’s history Saturday, and this year organizers have added contra dancing to the list of offerings.

And yes, it’s “Poultney Day” and “contra dancing” but I read these as “Poultry Day” and “conga dancing”.

Is it the double reed? Is it the back pressure? Or is it just me?
