I remember some years ago, newsreaders' creative attempts at different ways of pronouncing the word whilst attempting to stifle giggles when a probe was sent there.

I debated a flat earther once. He got so mad he stormed off saying he would walk to the edge of the earth and prove me wrong. He'll come around eventually.
