Funny Mispronunciations

I thought these were funny:

Borimir:
Bear-a-mare
Beer-a-mare

Beleriand:
Beleri-land(Buh-lair-ee-land)

Nan Dungortheb:
Den-gor-theb(Or: Hey! It sounds like a gel insole company!)

Anyone else?

My younger cousin, who has, unbelievably, never heard of Tolkien said this to me one day while I was reading the FotR:

"Carrie, why are you reading a book called To-clean?"

I just looked at him and laughed.

I still like Beleriland the most. I'll always call it that from now on, which reminds me, my friend pronunced it "Berry-land". :D

And then there's: "Ar-gon". My dad calls Inu-Yasha: "Inyu-squatcha". And my friend's dad calls it "Inu-washa-squasha".

But you do have to admit, Beleriland is so much fun to say! :wiggle:

My always and ever favorite remains Tim Benzadrin(o.) The mods may kill this, dunno, but it's late and hopefully a few folks can get some chuckles in the mean time. It can't be that bad; the gub-mint ain't banned it (yet.)

Heh, you should've posted Legolamb's song of "The fair elven maid of Nisselrode".

My always and ever favorite remains Tim Benzadrin(o.) The mods may kill this, dunno, but it's late and hopefully a few folks can get some chuckles in the mean time. It can't be that bad; the gub-mint ain't banned it (yet.)

It was a muddled, drowsy voice that sang words that were not words to Spam's ears:

"Toke-a-lid! Smoke a lid! Pop the mescalino!
Stash the hash! Gonna crash! make mine methedrino!
Hop a hill! Pop a pill! For old Tim Benzedrino!"

Though mad with fear, all strained to the rising melody sung by someone who sounded like he had terminal mumps:

"Snorting! Sporting! Speeding through the arbor,
Pushing till the folk you burn toss you in the harbor!
Screeching like a dying loon, zooming like the thrush!
Follow me and very soon, your mind will turn to mush!
Higher than the nowhere birds, grooving in the air,
We'll open up a sandal shop where everyone will share!
Flower folk are springing up, wearing bead and boot!
And if you down me you can stick a flower up your snoot!
To Love and Peace and Brotherhood we all can snort a toast,
And if the heat is on again, we'll all split to the coast!"

From Bored of the Rings, for anyone who didn't already know that.

Yeah, I should've gone with my gut on that one, sorry all. No more flirting with disaster for me.
