Pronunciation Is Fowl

| Related | February 3, 2012

(My brother is 7 years old. We are arguing about how to spell ‘chicken’, which he insists is pronounced ‘ticken’.)

Brother: *runs up to dad* “Daddy, what does ‘ticken’ start with?”

Dad: *serious face* “An egg.”

Brother: “But it’s ‘ticken’!”

(Sending a golden opportunity, my boyfriend chimes in.)

Boyfriend: “It’s not ‘ticken’! It’s not a bomb!”
