The Null Device

A man in Blackpool has a rare form of synaesthesia which causes him to taste words.
"When I recited the Lord's Prayer at school it used to bring all kinds of flavours into my mouth. For instance, the word 'trespass' tastes of bacon. I've chosen and dumped girlfriends because of how their names tasted. The name Tracy tastes of flaky pastry. But the name of my current girlfriend, Jannette, is neutral and doesn't taste of anything."

Mind you the bit about few doctors having heard of synaesthesia strikes me as a bit dubious.
