CRINGE - MORE FAYETTE COUNTY TALK
My last addition to CRINGE--FAYETTE COUNTY TALK prompted a number of responses:
PROMISSERRY NOTE rather than PROMISSORY NOTE
NOTARRY REEPUBLIC rather than NOTARY PUBLIC
EX CETERA rather than ET CETERA
CUMFTERBUL rather than COMFORTABLE
HAVE WENT rather than HAVE GONE
JEATJET? rather than DID YOU EAT YET?
NO, JU? rather than NO, DID YOU?
NO, SQUEAT rather than NO, LET'S EAT
The following aren't mispronunciations, but we hate them:
WE'RE PREGNANT (Norman said when a man told him that he answered, "You're not even showing!")
IT IS WHAT IT IS (What the hey does that mean?)
I COULD CARE LESS (really?)
