Coinages

Fuzzle


Mawnmower


MneeƱer


Poppy


Tea cuddle


Dinohorse!

  1. I see nothing wrong with those pronunciations!

    I always forget the tilde on Mneener...

    How about place names -- there's Ick and Donalds (McDonalds), Chick-alay, and many more...

  2. Oh, I think you mean McNonald's.

    For a long time Thing Two called an elephant a selephutn. I was kinda sad when he started pronouncing it correctly.

    Told recently, by the young'n's best friend, that what I was doing with the basketball was "nibbling."
