Pet Peeve

The Animal Planet narrator guy on "The Most Extreme Animal Pirates" just pronounced "mischievous" wrong. He pronounced it "mis-chee-vee-ous." Man, I'm so utterly disappointed.

At least it's listed in the dictionary... as a "nonstandard" pronunciation. :)

I can't BELIEVE it's in the dictionary. That is totally the market talking b/c we all know it was NEVER a "real" pronunciation.

And Law Fairy and K, what about when people can't spell "DEFINITELY"...????

I once dated a guy who said "mis-chee-vee-ous." But there was so MUCH about him that was disappointing, it was hard to focus on any one misdeed.

Our Great Leader says "nucular" all the time. In his case, though, it's one of his better qualities. (Although it does still set my teeth on edge.)
