    I fucking mispronounced Quinoa as "QUEEN-AH" for an entire non-profit event in front of 50 or so people, because my wife says it that way. I am an ass, and so is she. It's pronounced "KEEN-WA".

    I have no idea what Quinoa even is, but I would probably pronounce it "keen-o-wah" if I had to guess.

    It bugs the shit out of me when I read a word that I've never heard spoken, and the word could possibly be pronounced different ways. It happens often with street names, surnames, and of course food names. What's worse than wanting to try something on the menu but you are afraid to order it for fear the waiter will laugh out loud when you try to pronounce it?

    My guess was that it was one of Stellar's distant cousins at his family reunion.

    It's very tasty made the right way and is a heavy protein. It will fill you up and give you powerful shits afterwards.

    Someone should make a list of food names mispronounced by ethnics

    like scrimps, fil-et mig-non, rizzuto flaful

    btw, those are phonetic examples of things I've heard in kitchens I have worked in.


    The best though is when you hear a customer talk about something they think they are an expert on but they can't pronounce it right.
