My examples are:
[li]Ponster – for some reason, I keep reading that as “Porn Star” ;)[/li]
[li]Mangetout – I know how it’s supposed to read, but it always comes across as “mangy trout” and I have no idea why[/li]
[li]Rubystreak – for the longest, I thought this said Rubysteak, which makes me always think of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse[/li]
[li]TubaDiva – I still want to call her “TubaDivER”, like intertubing, which makes it sound like lots of fun[/li]
[li]pulykamell – I’m not really sure how to pronounce it anyway, but it always, for me, comes out as pukeymale and I swear that’s not an insult![/li][/ul]
I know, I know. Hopefully, I’m not the only one. Right? RIGHT??
