Thread Name: Sound Of Pear-Shaped Tones
Subject: RE: Sound Of Pear-Shaped Tones
The only meaning I know (UK) for pear-shaped is the 'something going awry' one that Don mentions above: "The deal went pear-shaped" meaning that it went wrong, and not to plan.

I suspect it's not the Bible or Shakespeare, Mrrz...
