Pee Cans? STFU!!

There are quite a number of things going on in the world, the U.S. and even in my own backyard that are important and worth commenting on. Iranian warships headed toward the Suez. Not a real big deal. We could sink them in minutes. Mohammedans jumping around all over the "Middle East." A real big deal. The protests in Wisconsin. A big deal not so much. Budget cuts in education in Texas. A pretty big deal. One thing that trumps them all is the correct pronunciation of the word "pecan." I was watching a show this evening about desserts and some bimbo was commenting on a pecan dish made in MA. (of all places). She was ranting about the heaven and bliss of this particular dessert when she did it. She called a pecan a "pee can." Holy smokes! Go back to school dummy. It is called a pecan as in puh con goddammit. Just saying.

Probably a sourthern gal, I've heard their pronunciation of the word before. Down here, pecan is pronounced PEE CON. But to each their own.
