I pronounce Orisue exactly how it's spelled. "oh-rice-ooo"

I don't know why, but I thought W)Taps was "with Taps" haha, I don't know why.

Soo-preme or Suh-preme are both correct, trahy-uhm-ver, Come day garson, O-ri-sue, Stew-see. Visvim = Vis, like "this" only with a "v" and vim, or possibly ViZ-vim.

aha that made me laugh

and I don't know if the person who asked how to pronounce Supreme was being serious, but you say it how you normally would say it, people have different voices and say things differently. Ex: Boston Accent, lol.

Except that's not how you pronounce it. It's Stew-see. Unless you pronounce pussy like pew-see. Then maybe you got problems.
