Good morning, Mr. Luxury Yacht

There’s a whole bunch of videos on the You Tube that instruct one on the correct pronunciation of odd words – often times foreign words or names that one might encounter regardless of one’s native language. I think I first saw a bunch of these for people too stupid to know how to correctly refer to design labels such as Lanvin or Burberry.

Here, for example, is bruschetta. It’s a personal pet peeve of mine, since it is often pronounced by English-speakers as “broo-shetta” – which is completely incorrect, since we all know that a ch followed by an e or an i in Italian is pronounced as a hard c. DUH.

What I did not know was that there is a whole series of parodies, which are hy-larious. Here are a few of my favorites.
