For me, it's supposed German car enthusiasts who pronounce
"Porsche" as "Porsh".  Although the most fun mispronunciation
I've ever encountered was the bartender who suggested that a
friend and I try their new beer - a "Heef Weezen".  Ever
since, whenever I order a Hefeweizen, I make a point of
pronouncing it "Heef Weezen" just to gauge the bartender's
reaction.  Those who wince get a bigger tip. :-)
