By Confused Clipboard - This FML is from back in 2016 but it's good stuff - United States

Who else sat here mouthing; 'cupboard... clipboard... cupboard... clipboard?'


Thanks, now I'm gonna start saying it like that to everyone I know. This is the same way zombie outbreaks occur.

Ever see Pontypool?

Hopefully, you'll absorb math knowledge from this Svengali as well as you take to insane pronunciation.

Well I just did and I'm not the first!

You're not alone

Don't worry, I used to pronounce counter as countner.

I used to pronounce Ambulance like Ambleance. Also there was an old game called Cosmo's Cosmic Adventures, but I would call it Cosmo's Cosmetic Adventures.

And that's why he teaches maths.
