i can only picture a British geographer saying that. "right, just gonna pop down to the ol' bergy bit"

yes! i will try to ascertain the etymology of "bergy bit." but in the meantime, i'm totally confident asserting that the term originated with the brits. for sure.

New from Procter and Gamble the makers of Bacon Bits, Burgy Bits. P&G like to call them big ol ice cubes but geographers frowned on that.
