I agree. I always cringe a little when I hear them. ha ha Good job.
I'll remember that.
As usual very funny and/or creative. You took your time today and added color. Great illustration.
I love the color and I absolutely agree! Now someone tell the teenagers...:)www.indigeneartforms.blogspot.com
And don't forget JEWELRY!
Guilty as charged.Cheers!Son
The sooner the better I say :)
Willie you are slacking off. Only no. 53 this time? I had to scroll to get to you.Why, are there other ways of pronouncing these words. I hate it when people think the s in Asterisk is silent.
I couldn't agree more! When I was a full-time working mom, I hired a sweet nanny who mispronounced soooo many words. Took a while to "unlearn" my kid!
Irregardless, it bugs me most when people can't say "anonymity" or "juggernaut."I am totally serious. Not about irregardless, but those other two. I see it coming when they are reading aloud and they start to pause and falter and I think, not again, does no one read anymore? And I know that is just a *itchy schoolteacher grousing but some days my inner schoolmarm ventures forth and thinks these things.
That stalk of lone standing flower on the right looks like a sentry over any mispro. Or an old-fashioned principal in her stern bulging bespectacled eyes.
LOL. Now today I will be thinking about all those mispronounced words that bug me.
Hey, thanks for your comment on my blog.I'm not a native english speaker, so I had to look the term up (uncanny) in the dictionary. I'm patting on my own back for doing so. I'm now proudly educated and amused :))
I agree totally but I am very guilty of this. Colourful illustration.
Hey W, very nice piece. I like your work, it's been a while I don't look around but your job is still as conceptual as a time before. Clap.HugsMau
I have a friend who keeps bringing up just how smart she is. She mispronounces more words than anyone I know. "Supposevly" is one of her most used faux pas! And she pronounces Avante Garde as "avante gard-ay!" I have never corrected her. I just sit back and quietly enjoy the irony.
Very hilarious! I'd also add "February".If I hear "febuary" one more time...oh boy! hehe
Nice one Willie!
Great idea and funny as usual.
I confess, I say "fustrate" instead of "frustrate" but always correct people, in my best Homer Simpson voice, when they mispronounce "nuclear".
You say tomAto I say tomatoYou say potAto I say spud:)
Hey, I recognize this drawing. You know I'm with you on this stuff. I frequently yell "nuke lee er" at the television when W mispronounces it. It gets my goat, so to speak.
lol! with the nature of my job i should be wary not to do such mistakes..
awe man, you made me say all those words over n over now! ha, love it, good one!
Thankfully I only stretch out my I's...part of the hillbilly in me...on a related note...did I just read your name in the June edition of HOW magazine??? I'll have to call you the infamous willie from now on...
ahahahahahhahah!!!! perfectly observed. and this feels like it could be a "sassier schollhouse rock" piece. "))i still say "pahsketti." instead of, well, "pasta." sad...so sad.
Crackin' font and speechy bubbles.
great message. like your colours
Don't forget Marge Simpson's famous "Foilage!"
Thanks for stopping by! :-)Willie
