There are people who pronounce "voilà" as "viola".
People who think that "diamond dogs" are in some way common.
The second syllable in "Minkowski" goes moo, so they say, and "cache" somehow rhymes with "pay", not "cash".
Give me more hilarious examples of people failing to use the English language.

Don't make me feel like a prick for saying Na-Boh-Kuv you plebeians. If you know anything about him its that correct pronunciation was important to him.

Huh?

>Minkowski
>English language
Plenty of foreign names take on English sounds if they've emigrated to a new country and feel that it's easier for the locals to pronounce. That's not a huge mistake.

Voilà is French, Minkowski is not English, and neither is cache.

I think he meant "diamond dozen".
>>5189355
Cache and Voilà are both English words. They have origins in other languages, but so do most words in the English language.
I guess mispronouncing Minkowski is just funny.

I am sorry to be the baron of bad news, but you seem buttered, so allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies, and are more than just ice king on the cake. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality.

I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go.

Yes, but it does not mean what they mean it to mean.

I was following an online architecture course from an American university. I had to double take when I heard her pronunciation of "niche". Was the most absurd thing I heard until "Haiti".

Vaginas are beautiful and attractive and something to be proud of. Penises are not. Even malegays acknowledge this, for all their cock-craving.
