Off the top of my head, I can come up with at least a dozen things I find wrong with both Sarah Palin and W. But one thing that I refuse to hold against them is their pronunciation of the word “nuclear.” I’m actually going to cut them some slack on that one, because while it does make them sound pretty damn stupid, I can’t claim perfect English pronunciation, either. (Additionally, I just realized that I can’t spell the word “pronunciation” without help from Mr. Spell Check.)
But that is neither here nor there. According to credible news sources (BestWeekEver.TV) the mangled variation of the word is now becoming acceptable. If you have a moment, link to the fairly humorous sketch, it was fairly humorous.
This brings me to the one word that for the life of me, I just cannot say. And I don’t mean that it’s a swear word that I refuse to say, or even a racial epithet. Working on Chappelle’s Show and having to speak names of certain sketches out loud cured me of that taboo. What I mean is that there’s one English word that, when I try to say it, my brain will not send the proper messages to my tongue, and I make a mess of it. But rather than explain this with writing, I’ve created a podcast for you all, with a little help from Lucy.
So how ’bout you? Any words fall trippingly on your tounge?
