    Question Who do some say 'Fooket'???

    It's usually tourists or first timers who say 'Fooket' instead of 'Phuket'.

    I don't know why they say it this way, all I know is that I want to hit them with considerable force when they do. It's as irksome as people who say 'Cliff Richards' or 'Trivial Persuits'.

    Cunts.

    Not heard the fooket for a while, I think only my mum says it. I think Saffan Thaksin Bridge is a lot more common these days.

    You get a whole range of different pronunciations such as Chao Phaya > Jabhaya, Pahtahya, pahtayah> Pattaya and for example even amongst the Thais.

    I don't like it when people pronnounce the 'th' in Anthony, though I don't mind it during Ray Liotta's narration of Goodfellas but that's the only exception.

    As mentioned 'ph' is pronounced as 'f' in the English language.
    And calling those 'cunts' who pronounce Phuket improperly, what should
    we call you for spelling 'pursuits' improperly???

    So we have Arlo Guthrie to blame for the way brits say Los Angeles. One of his few claims to fame.

    I've got to admit that posting Arlo Guthrie lyrics did make feel kinda ashamed and dirty, like how you feel after you smear with balls with liver sausage so the dog will lick them, except that you can kill the dog afterwards to hide your dirty, dirty shame but Arlo Guthrie is still alive
