    Of all the ones I have actually heard of, I have been doing it correctly.

    Never heard of pide. Looks delicious.

    Nothing is douchier than when people throw around "proper ethnic pronunciations" like it makes them sophisticated and worldly... no... it just makes you sound like a douche.

    "I'll be traveling to South America and visiting 'Watemala' next year."

    Or the absolute worse is the Eye-talian American gindaloons with their "mootzarel" and "gabagool"... ugh... stop it, you're about as Italian as Chef Boy-Ar-Dee. Stop your foolishness.

    I'm just the opposite. I hate it when people pronounce shit wrong...or allow me to continue doing so.

    It's Year-ro, not Jye-ro, you fucking savages.

    And for God's sake, it's "RAYSH", not "Ras"!

    You are one of those people that I love to torment.

    In Norway I pronounced it 'fuh-jord' until everyone wanted to kill me, and my wife wants to slash my throat with a steak knife when I insist on ordering the 'fill-it mig-non' and a side of 'Ass-pear-ah-gus' in every fancy steak joint we go to.

    I live to annoy.

    Wait, how do you think you pronounce asparagus? I grew up literally blocks from asparagus fields. The proper pronunciation is Ass-pair-uh-gus.

    No, no. That's pronounced "Jale-Bate"

    Yes... that's the proper annoying douche pronunciation.

    It's all about the annoyance.

    Again, how else would you pronounce it? I've heard people jokingly say "ass-per-grass," but that's it.

    No, you pronounce it with the regular r and t... unless you want to sound like you're from a country that thought a fence would keep out the Germans.

    How does living near something equate to being an expert on its pronunciation? Did you ask the asparagus how they pronounce it?

    Well, if you grew up next to a french bakery, I'm pretty sure you'd know how to pronounce "croissant."

    I grew up in Baltimore, where the people can't even pronounce the name of their own fucking city. Doesn't exactly support your case. :action-sm

    None of you east coast folks can pronounce shit. It's like you do it on purpose.

    I'm just happy to see you post in typed form. I was worried you had went a little looney tunes.

    I guess I don't pronounce most these things right. I'm pretty shaken up about it.

    Shitty Aussie article, which explains the suh-she, snitzel, and hoe-mus. American's sure say things fucked-up, but not that fucked-up.
