    What?! You pronounce the H in herb? Man, I was sure you didn't!
    ... Wasn't it "hour, heir, honest and herb"?

    I'm totally confused now.
    You don't pronounce the "H" in "herb." The Highway doesn't type in perfect English, so he may cause confusion.
  • Ah, yes, that's a possible explanation too. Thanks!

    What about pickles? They are cucumbers, and commonly cut lengthwise.
    Sammeth and Maximus thought so too. Kept blabbing their mouths in front of the mole men. You know what happened to them right? Sources report it as an "accident". Yeah. Uh huh...

    I am actually a grammar nazi, but I say the "H" because that's just how we do it down under.
  • So you complaining because somone is not pronouncing something they typed thats typed. Would it be better to type 'erb, 'onest and 'alf.
  • Who are you talking to exactly, Gibbon?
    I was just overreacting to the fact he wrote "a herb" and not "an herb", because I found it funny that it shocked me more than the fact he said bananas were herbs.
    And he just pronounces it the Aussie way because that's where he's from.
    I don't think either of us is complaining.

    I can second this.

    Also, how does everyone pronounce 'historic'? Because I've always wondered why it's written 'an historic day'.
  • I'm pretty sure the h in historic is pronounced. At least I pronounce it.

    saying "a historic" is a bit jerky, just then when i quietly whispered it, so pronouncing the h in "an historic" is actually better.

    Actually, yes. After reading your comment, I did the same, and "an historic" does come off the tongue a lot easier.
