  6:05pm stinkbug:

  6:05pm ben drinken:

  6:05pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

It doesn't really matter what the topic is. It is just about talking for an hour.
  6:05pm E Double:

It is pronounced "Aunt", as it is spelled. Not "ant".
  6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank you Dave from Seattle! That's the point!

And that "heavy NJ accent" is similar to a British accent, adding "-er" to "-a" words.
  6:08pm Mariano:

My stepdad, the one who told me that Benny Hill's real name was Val Marsiglia, worked at Charity Hospital in New Orleans back in the 60s. He hear women refer to their hoo-has, instead of vagina, as pajamas (oh doc, my pajamas are on fire!), as well as virgina.

'mung-ster'. Quality Pennsylvania adding of "g"s to words.
  6:09pm jaycjay:

i used to work with an actual registered lobbyist in a backwater state who pronounced "omnibus" as "ominous." The problem was that we were working legislation called the "Omnibus Water Bill" so she'd be testifying in front of the state legislature about that "Ominous Water Bill." I'd hear the theme from JAWS every time.
  6:09pm Listener Schned:

My big sister calls spaghetti "piz-getti" to this day- I worked a security graveyard shift with a seriously old-school retired Irish cop who said "stragety" when he meant strategy-
  6:09pm E Double:

This is an elitist topic that only appeals to you edumacated people
  6:11pm Mariano:

E Double: No, sorry! My stepdad had me convinced that he was a New Orleanian with that name, when I was about 13.
  6:11pm Linguist:

r insertion is called rhotacism (rho is what they call "r" in ancient Greek). it's common in many languages. we pronounce r's in english but brits stopped pronouncing r's in the early 1700s ("rathah" vs. our "rather"). but we just kept the older pronunciation is all. except for elite east coast boarding school types who drop r's to sound more british.
  6:11pm Mike McKenzie:

  6:11pm Staten Island:

  6:13pm and so on and on:

I asked the teacher how to spell "and so on", since my parents would use that a lot.
  6:13pm Mike:

I had a co-worker who mispronounced the word "extraneous". She said "extrenuous". And she said it all the time, far more often than anyone else uses the word.
  6:13pm Hugh:

  6:13pm bannana pajama:

  6:14pm Mike McKenzie:

Did you exchange photos before your date, Frangry?!?
  6:14pm Frangry's Dates:

  6:19pm E Double:

Frangry, what is the stinky guy's first and last name?
  6:20pm Mariano:

Maybe he wasn't celibate by choice...
  6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

"Incebs", as they're known...
  6:20pm Jilliers:

As inventor of this topic.... I insist you stick to it. Incidentally... ~I~ have been celibate for two years as well; purely for seminary purposes.
