Skunkgal - Too Much Skunk In Your Junk

how do you say ‘chipotle?’

the original.

i was in the chipotle motherland (denver) this week, and took pics of the original. this is http://milagreskallianpur.com/buy-cialis-canada interesting to my friday burrito work peeps, so others, please don’t make fun.

more importantly, while in colorado, i kept running into people pronouncing “chipotle” as “chee-pole-TEE.” at least a half dozen people. in fact, it was always said like this. what the hell?

wikipedia tells me that chipotle, as in the flavor, should be pronounced “chee-POTE-lay.” the “T” is obviously before the “L.” why would you ever think to reverse it when saying it? this has been labeled a colorado pronounciation FAIL. this is particularly bad b/c there is a large mexican/hispanic population in the state. ask for a little help, white people. not that hard.

    It’s not just in Colorado. Minnesotans tend to say chih-pole-tee. At least Colorado gets the “chee” right.

    Minnesota is home of daily viagra other bad pronunciations, though these could just as easily be found elsewhere in the US: Hennepin (should have a nasal n at the end, but is pronounced like hen-uh-pin), Nicollet (should be pronounced nee-koh-lay, but is pronounced nickel-lit). And MANY people use the cheap viagra for sale word “borrow” to mean “lend,” as in “I borrowed my friend $50.”

    Don’t get me started on the abomination known as “duck, duck, GREY DUCK.”

    Wow, the first Chee-pole-TEE that started them on. You have truly been blessed by the burrito gods.

    My brother-in-law pronounces it “chih-POLE-tay”

    At least he gets that last vowel phoneme right… but the fact that the rest of it is a trainwreck makes me cringe.

    He also says, “To each their own.”

    Since “each” is singular, it should be paired with a singular possessive pronoun: “his” or “her”.

    Thus the old saying, “To each his own.”

    Thanks for allowing me to vent!
