    Which, with you and I being the shy introverted type, would be unthinkable.

    True story; an English escapee from Kolditz was approaching the outer perimeter when he was accosted by a guard with a rifle pointed menacingly at him, shouting 'hande hoch!' The English airman threw his hands in the air and screamed 'Nick scheissen posten; Luckily the guard had a sense of humour, the story has it.

    An 'electrifying' man whom Marco and I both know, always called his Troika 'Troeeka', even when my friend and I were discussing this cartridge with him.

    Koetsu is frequently misspelt (Keotsu, e.g.). This is a novel thread topic, but could just as interestingly be applied to cars. Lancia ('LANCHEA or LANCE-ea?), PORSH or PORSHA? ALFA ROMAYO or ALFA ROMIO ? That one survived, although Juliet's boyfriend's name didn't.

    It's a linguistic minefield out there.

    I heard 'Von Gaylord' is pronounced 'Von Straightlord', instantly eliminating any naming controversy.

    Why ??
    Do they ?

    Matsushita I know is Pioneer/Technics, right ?
    But Mitsubishi ??

    Incidentally - off on a tangent - the Mitsubishi pen company, brand name Uniball, is nothing to do with the car manufacturer - it's just a common name.
