I read about George Bernard Shaw's "Ghoti" pronunciation in a crummy detective novel ( more detail ). So, if "ghoti" sounds like fish, then guess what "eighpptiopt" sounds like. (how about: apeshit). Yes, this kept me up last night. For a couple of hours, I think.
Having a hard time?
- "gh" from tough, "o" from women, "ti" from instruction. Put it together for fish.
- "eigh" from eight, "pp" from apple, "ti" from action, "pt" from receipt. And you've got apeshit!
Can we have more fun? Probably, but seems like the only time my brain is spinning on inane deep thought is when I should be getting some sleep. You can have more fun now, I'll wait until 3am, thanks.
