Posted:While on holiday i visited a new sports complex in France (cape du couvair (sp?)) and i found i couldnt say "Ski Slope". It ended up sounding like "Ski Skope" or "Sli slope".

I've tried many times and still cant pronounce it. I was wondering if i was alone in the world or if anyone else finds pronouncing certain words impossible.

Posted:Alot of my fuk-ups happen when intoxicated (,,hmm..wonder why>>>..)
The first time I dropped a bean, I was at a house party in Chiswick (English suberb, pronounced chizik).. I'd just turned fifteen... When it was time to leave I rounded all my mates up an walked down the road to a phone box to get a cab...
Twas a lady who answered the call, "Hello, can I have a cow please?" I asked. Now these days somthing like that would make me crease, but being 15, I instantly got paranoid. 'shit!! what if she knows I'm fucked??' I thought...

Of course she just creased up herself...

Posted:That's not too bad. My friend can't pronounce the sound of 'TH' so she always goes ' I sink...'
instead of ' I think'. It is difficult because we don't have that sound in Japanese. V and R are also hard... I sometime say 'bideo' when I want to say 'video'.

oh well...wack to berk...According to this word of the day, it's named after a Rev. Spooner, who kept saying them in his sermons. Must have made church much more interesting


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:I have a lovely friend who cannot pronounce her "V"s. We started working together in the orders centre of a rather famous brewery, one that makes a beer called "Victoria Bitter" or "VB" for short. The publican population was vastly entertained by the idea of "wee bees"...

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

heheee - I have a big problem with Spoonerisms actually.

Was crapping on about "Manthony Undine" (australian boxer = Anthony Mundine) for a while...

Went to the shop and asked for a "Speese and Chinich Roll" - was pretty hilarious.

I've always preferred to Low the Mawn, than do anything else with long grass and mawnlowers.

Anyway, I leed to neave, cos its fime I tinished work. I came out with a killer spoonerism last night. Made myself laugh for a good 187 seconds! I may have even snorted.

I said to my boyfriend as he was biting my arm:

"oooww! You have tarth sheep!"

was trying to say "you have sharp teeth"

double spoonerism. I guess that's the result of working 70 hours this week!

anyway.

Posted:A friend of mine and her husband from Cape Town took her 2 year old son on holiday with them to the french alps. He couldn't speak too well (couldn't say the letter 's' and 'j's came out as 'd's), and the entire trip he went went around screaming 'No No No' at the top of his voice. They thought he was being very disagreeable and told him off a few times, until they realised that he was trying to shout 'snow' (which there happened to be a lot of). They felt pretty bad, poor kid, not his fault that dumb grown ups don't get it.

xx
p.s. I always end up saying Par Cark instead of Car Park, and when I was little I couldn't tell the difference between Melon and Lemon. (I think I was dropped on my head a few too many times as a baby)


....so does it come with a hat?
