i would have never guessed W)taps was double taps.

and i figured it was "a-life" but my boy told me it was called "a-leef-a"
Nov 30, 2007 @ 05:43
i always thought it was dubayu-taps.

nom de guerre is french, it means "name of war"

1. A-life, long A

wrong, when you call the store they pronounce it anything just like you would use it in a regular sentence.

Com (like Common) da gar-sawn (like how people yell GARCON for a french waiter)

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.

how about Supreme?

is it sup-ream or soo-prem or sup(rhymes w/ cup)-reeemmmmmmmm>smh
Nov 30, 2007 @ 16:35
i kinda knew there would one day be a thread like this .... especially for Dub Taps
Nov 30, 2007 @ 16:39
Visvim?
Nov 30, 2007 @ 16:49
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.
Nov 30, 2007 @ 18:19
crooks & castles= crooks and castles


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.
