Hey. Do you know what's hard to say?

"Irish wristwatch"

Well, *I* find it hard to say. Maybe it's my Canadian accent. eh?

I'm finding it hard to say, too! How did I never know this? (Though, I also have a Canadian accent...)

Do you use the expression "shit disturber"?

I don't think I can do it either (educatedish Brit accent)

Ooh. "Educatedish". That doesn't sound like something the Educatedish English say. ha!


My West Australian tongue finds it hard too. I keep wanting to miss out the 'r' in wristwatch.

Yes, I've got the same problem, at worst it comes out as Irish wishwash!

I have a Florida cracker accent, and mine comes out as Iwish rishrosh.

My history teacher at school a few eons ago could never say "El Alamein". Our class asked so many questions about the Western front in 1942, just to see him try and get his tongue around it - it was the only section of the exam we all aced.

When I was in U, we had a math TA with a thick Chinese accent. He pronounced calculate "COCK-u-late". And a room of men seemed to really enjoy getting him to say it ever chance they had.

Irish wristratch. Over and over again.
Brain is angry at lips.

The solution to this problem is to not allow those Irish to own wristwatches.

They probably use pocket watches, anyway.

I can't even get through Irish, and I'm largely Irish (honestly!). Goddamnitall.
