18. Will most likely start Civil War XXXVIII, but hearing someone say
catsup is as bad as hearing someone say often and pronouncing the "t." It is an icepick through the ear for me, and I immediately think the person is 1) willfully trying to be idiosyncratically whimsical and coming off as eye-scrapingly irritating or 2) been huffing far too long. :)
