Modern Observational Comedy - Are we not men?
Modern Observational Comedy
What's that dance that stars who can't dance do, where they put their arms above their head, with hands positioned so as to snap the fingers but without actually snapping, the shaking of the hips, and a pouty facial expression aimed to the left and down sometimes alternating with the beats? What is that? And why?

Imagine if we spelled everything that has a c-pronounced-k with a q instead. Like, qool. Qan. Qoqoa. Things would look real stupid then.

There's this one song I like, but I can't ever remember it when I want to explain it to someone who might know the title and artist. Maybe I'll sing it real loud in the shower and ask my neighbors if they know what it is.

I guess I should let the kittys type.

Is that dance followed by someone saying "Moon Prism Power, make up!"?

That reminds me, there's this new restaurant opening up called Qdoba. And no one can figure out how to pronounce the name of the damn place. So I think it will bomb because of that. No one wants to sound dumb and say it wrong.

That reminds me of a stupid person I knew. He would try and sound all cool by pronouncing the name of the sandwich shop Quizno's "keez-nohz". He thought he knew it all. Boy was he embarrassed when the radio and television ads confirmed that it's pronounced "kwiz-nohs".

Maybe he made up Qdoba to get revenge... I guess the other pronunciation isn't too unbelievable, but if I see "quiz" I think it's pronounced like "quiz" so... *shrug*

It's not an unbelievable pronunciation, but the way this guy said it was so pretentious - like how people pronounce french words with the actual french vocal accents. He really thought he was something because he KNEW how to pronounce it. I wish you could have heard it, it was so funny. I knew another guy who would pronounce Pachelbel like this "Pash-ell-belly" and he had all these foreign vocals on it like he was from that country and fluent. Man, he was so stupid, too.

I guess the point is, it's OK to mispronounce something, as long as you aren't pretentious about it.
