Years ago, I was in Macy’s Herald Square shopping for mattresses. The saleslady, who had a thick Brooklyn accent, was most helpful as she escorted us about. The highlight of this shopping adventure was when she showed me the three top-of-the-line models from one particular manufacturer:

Apparently, she and Shia LaBeouf went to the same school.
I am also happy to report that I have never, ever mispronounced a word… Ahem.
