"nucular" instead of nuclear, that was for you president bush hahaha
Lunatics on pogo sticks
Another southern fried freak on a crucifix

Well...the city I live in, Terre Haute. People butcher it all the time. pronounced terra hote. Also the whole crick thing instead of creek. People think that because we live out in the boonies that that's how we say it.

But that's kinda like the whole culture thing where we call soft drinks pop here and in other places it's soda or cola. It's pop! lol.

"Geetar instead of guitar" That's kinda like how people insist on calling wrestling "rassling". That pisses me off, it's a real sport, not that WWE crap on t.v.

how about when people pronouce Z as "zee" instead of "zed" ..can't stand that. Where did this "zee" come from?..who started teaching that?

Although "zee" is the supposedly American pronounciation of Z..I don't see why there should be a different pronounciation or then again a separate English between American and UK English

Kill your friend, kill your friend's girlfriend, then kill the person she's cheating on him with. Then rape all three of them, then kill yourself, then rape yourself.

Fehgit instead of faggot, Speanesh instead of Spanish, lawker instead of locker, nub instead of n00b, furment instead of ferment, Carbawn instead of Carbon, eanimawl or aminal instead of animal, hawt chick from Opeth instead of babe from Opeth, etc.
I really dislike using 'the British', I'd rather use 'Britannic chaps' but that's not pronounciation so meh.

This drives me nuts.

When people mispronounce Oregon, and say "or-ree-GAWN". It's f*cking "OR-eh-gen"! It annoys me when people try to argue with me on this. I'm from here, I know how to pronounce it.

For some reason, it also bugs me when people say, "Cally" instead of California.

Quote by Mr. B


and pop instead of soda.



It is pop! P-O-P!

The people were so confused when I went to florida one summer. We were just like, what kind of pop do you have here? They thought we were talking about drugs or something. Strange how that's such a difference.

When people say aluminum instead of aluminium it really annoys me. Especially when they insist that its the 'right' way.

Also, mispronounciation of Japanese words doesn't bother me but it is great for a laugh.

Febury rather than February. Also I hate it when people say 'Faggit' rather than 'Faggot'. I haven't got the sharpest of accents but inferior language like that just pisses me off.

when people say aks instead of ask, like in futurama (usually it's people with insanely huge mouth organs who can't pronounce the word ask)
If you have something clever to say, don't bother, most people won't get it.
