I always see it as ms pms
I pronounce it like: M.P. SIMS myself…
Empy Simms. Basically the same as Satan’s pronunciation, but treating the first two letters as a single word.
I just call it Mundane Pointless.
You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.
I always and up pronouncing it IMP-ISIMS. It rolls off of the tongue that way.
Or Mip Sims. How many of you actually pronounce this word? Who are you talking to?
I pronounce it like this http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum4/HTML/000557.html
Well actually more like Mipsmms. And I pronouce it in my head mainly. “Oh I have to read Mipsmms”

I usually pronounce it “mippisms”, due to my inherently dyslexic nature. I guess that makes me a “mippist”.
Modest? You bet I’m modest! I am the queen of modesty!
I don’t pronounce it, but I often think the acronym means something else. Instead of “Mundane Pointless Stuff I Must Share”, I think “More Pointless S**t I Must See”.
“I’m just too much for human existence – I should be animated.”
This may be the first time I’ve ever said this in print, but I agree with Satan.
If man was meant to fly faster than the speed of sound
he would have been born with 50,000 pounds of thrust.
I call it “mundane pointless” also. And yes, I do say it out loud, to my husband, who also posts here (UndeadDude)
