ear-itable

Where's that city where they're hosting the winter Olympics?

Too-Rin?
Too-Rin?
Chew-rin?
Churrin?

In my imagination I am going to call it Kalankanobia. Nobody can mess that up. When I hear some announcer bumble through calling it something horrible-sounding, I will substitute my city name just like a beep covers over a swear word...KALANKANOBIA. Maybe I will just shout it out and let people wonder what I'm on about. Every time an announcer mis-pronounces Turin, I will shout KALANKANOBIA!!!

There. I feel much better now.

question: what bugs you for no good reason?

KALANKOBIA!

What bugs me is somewhat related to your pet peeve. It really bugs me when news anchorpeople flub up the text of a newscast-several times. Is it not their job to be able to read fluently?

When people call Massachusetts Massa-two-sets. They really do down here in the south.
