Sue, London

Surely a "letter box" is a slot in your front door. Everyone I know calls those red things either post boxes or pillar boxes.
MJ Simpson, Leicester UK

Re the horsemeat story; When my (English) uncle, who lives in Hamburg, had English friends or rellies over to visit, he used to surprise them by serving a dish that resembled shepherd's pie, which he called jockey pie. Uncle John has always had a wicked sense of humour.
Phil Warne, Nelson, NZ

Fran, Brill, UK

Emma (Thursday's letters) I believe you also have a coffee shop called Bean Around the World. Round my way, I don't think it's an intentional pun but the company that manufactured the lifts at work is called Schindler.
Martin, Luxembourg

Lesson in life: If you find yourself hanging on the phone for a call centre, start eating something. Someone's bound to answer your call as soon as your mouth is full.
Michael Hall, Croydon, UK
