The burping bedpost

I was listening to a podcast yesterday where the host kept pronouncing bassoon “BASS-oon” instead of “buh-SOON” and it really tripped me up. The podcast is about goings-on in the host’s neighborhood, and it’s pretty apparent that everybody in the host’s neighborhood doesn’t like him very much. Well, apparent to everybody except the host.

Anyway, I used to be on the host’s side in terms of many of the petty disputes he was describing, but hearing him pronounce “bassoon” like that is making me rethink everything. This animation doesn’t have anything to do with that podcast, but there is a bassoon playing throughout the entirety of it. God, I wonder if he calls flute players “flautists.” Ugh.
