"Wednesday"


For those of you that don't know who Lloyd Robertson is, let me introduce you. As the Chief Anchor of CTV news, he does a pretty good job.... I've always thought he wears a little too much makeup, but that's really neither here nor there.

There is one thing about him, however, that drives me absolutely nuts: he pronounces the 'D' in "Wednesday". Instead of saying "wenz-day" like every other English-speaking person this side of the Atlantic, he says "wed-ens-day".

Lloyd, please stop. You're making my ears bleed.

I've often wished I could pull that "d" out and beat him with it.

Decent news guy, though.
