Sonia is the name of the rather morose-sounding device that announces the stations on the London Underground (tube). According to one Jubilee line driver, "We call her Sonia, because she gets sonia nerves."

- "please mind the gap, between the train and the platform" (Ohhh! THAT gap!)

Actually, I loathe Sonia. Her miserable robotic voice manages to ensure that I feel like a crushed bug at the beginning and end of every day. I'm sure London could transform into a orgiastic city of joy, if Sonia would just cheer up!

- "This is a .."
".. Circle Line .."
".. train, for .."
".. High Steet Kensington .."
".. and .."
".. Victoria."

Well, at least she speaks clearly.
