It's Pronounced Oooookooooolaylay.

I haven't bitched, I mean "blogged" in a while, so I've been holding a lot inside. But "DearOldNutjob" made a comment on Russell's last blog which brought up something that's been bugging me for a long time. That is the "....it's pronounced ____" thing. As in her name is Sade but "it's pronounced" Sharrday. Or his name is Favre, but it's pronounced Farv. WTF? Here is a good one...Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski....Mike What? Well duh, its pronounced Sha-chef-ski. Well I'm not playing that game anymore. To me, Sade will always rhyme with "made."


BTW....My name is Kevin, but it's pronounced "Bite me".

An ookoolalay sounds like something an orangutan would play.

Ook.

I have a similar beef with words like "indictment" and "victuals." I rarely use them, for fear of saying them wrong. Btw, my name DearOldNutjob is actually pronounced Donut.

And "often" is pronounced "offen" not "Off-ten"
Time to go soften my hands..
