Wuss-tuh

Only words that end with an 'a' are pronounced like they end with 'er' like that Bill Joel song about "Brender and Eddie".

I meant "oo" as in book, but you're right, Wuss-tuh gets it across better.

I should have added "all final Rs optional."

Sarge: Oh blue team... Before you go, maybe we should talk about optional equipment on your new robots.

Tucker: What optional equipment!?

Sarge: All you said you wanted was a body, we didn't talk about featuuuures.

Tucker: Like what?

Sarge: You know, undercoating, extended warranty, features, man, come on. Like do you want them to be able to use both arms at once?

Tucker: Of course.

Sarge: Asynchronous arm movement isssssss optional!

Tucker: What? Oh man, I told Church they would try to screw us! What about the feet?

Sarge: Did you want feet?

Tucker: Yeah we want feet!

Sarge: Sorry, feet are optional.

Tucker: What's on the bottom of its legs?

Sarge: Legs are optional.

Tucker: Oh man, what a ripoff.

Sarge: Options are optional.

Tucker: What isn't optional?

Sarge: You look like a nice guy, don't worry, we'll work something out. Have you thought about financing? How's yer credit? I can offer you a free set of high quality mud flaps... and a lube job... You won't be disappointed! I've been told my lube jobs are fantastic!

What's MA?

That modest little place of sheep-fleecing worship is Chester Cathedral, Chester, Cheshire, England, UK, Europe

I was raised in Berkshire, England.

Different time zone and also probably different by pronunciation ... we say Bark-sher; I'm guessing yours is Burke-Shyer?

Smile

I'm an American, I've never heard it pronounced Burke-Shyer; I've always pronounced as you do in the UK. I have a hard time with how Americans pronounce certain words from other countries, for Instance in Connecticut there is a town by name of Norwich which is generally pronounced Nor-Wich if you can believe that.

BTW MA is the abbreviation of Massachusetts, the state that is.

In any case welcome to TTA.

Today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be even better.
