So there’s this guy…..

And he started making up pronunciations for words, and I have laughed very much due to this guy. It is a satirical play on the actual Pronunciation Book, a series of Youtube videos to help people pronounce different English words appropriately.

I am a fan! It is just a bunch of ridiculous pronunciations; so stupid it’s funny. My favorite so far is Guiness (he uses it in a sentence). Second up is hors d'oeuvres. Go ahead, watch 20 of them like I did the first time I found it....milk, Skyrim, Aeropostale, cappuccino....it never ends.

Watching them got me thinking…..people never seem to pronounce kubb right:


 



No, that isn't my coworker saying "I have not played that game" in Icelandic. It's the real pronunciation of kubb, and we have been saying it wrong for thousands of years!

Enjoy!
