11. God, but this attitude makes me mad.
You should hear some of the pronunciations in Dublin, or the way the French use a silent "h" in hamburger.

America is no more or less stupid than anywhere else. Your post just comes off as bitter.

9. When the speaker has a coke jaw problem
Not to mention the brain damage from years of drug and alcohol abuse. Add to that the emotional baggage of having Babs as a mother.

13. Ever since they started raising chinchillas there!
Remember, if you raise chinchillas, you won't have to buy your wife a coat. Kill, skin and sew the little suckers' pelts! And you can do it in your apartment! And they taste great with garlic sauce!

14. I believe the pronunciation can be found in the same place Bush

finds the pronunciation of "nuclear". Pretty much the same, GD it! It can make a literate person go mad. It just hurts to hear, makes one look upon deafness fondly.
