    1. That’s the way I say it. When I’m sober. LOL Why am I not surprised there are YouTube videos on it?! Too funny.

  1. I don’t think it really matters how you pronounce it – everyone knows what you mean so you still get handed the right sauce. I use the same ploy as Easy – I refer to it as the Lea and Perrins. Just as easy to say that than anything else. :o)

    1. I’ve never been very good at saying that properly. It’s one of those words that makes everyone sound silly.

  2. Mom was born in western Massachusetts and lived there for 37 years. She is a bit of a linguist and always struggled with the “preferred” pronunciation of the city of Worcester, but based on how she says that city’s name, we think we know how she pronounces Worcestershire, and it makes no sense:)

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  3. I’m sure I have confidently pronounced it wrong my entire life. I was raised in West Texas where the twang makes us mispronounce everything. I feel bad for those who have no such excuse! I’m just glad that I found the 303 29 years ago.

    1. And the 303’s great gain! I don’t think anyone can pronounce it right which puts us all in the same boat.

  4. I beg to disagree. Where would we be without these strange pronunciations?! 😉 Can you imagine what would happen if everyone were able to pronounce it correctly?! 😀
    Btw, try this place name: Cirencester. The locals pronounce it as “sissitte”.

        1. Ha…they’re gonna need it. The have a long history of looking particularly bad on Monday night. Especially against the Raiders.
