skipvia commented on the word crudite
That sounds even more crude. You can't win with this word. If you pronounced it incorrectly, it sounds like "crud." If you pronounce it properly, it sounds like "crude." Either way...Still, I suppose it's better than horse's ovaries. (Which horse is she talking about--or did she mean "horses' ovaries?")

I call them crudities. Does that make them more appetizing, skipvia?;)

Ironically, crudite is not a very appetizing word.

That's what my Mom says too! In fact, I was just about to say that.Creepy. ;-)
Yarb, I know someone who pronounces it that way and really doesn't know it's supposed to be pronounced differently. The first time, I thought she was kidding. The second time, I stopped giggling.
My mom always used to say "horse's ovaries."

Try pronouncing this to rhyme with luddite if you want to embarrass a posh party host. E.g. "Hey Lucretia, have you got any vino to wash these crudites down with?"
The great part is, it isn't even declaring itself to be a cookbook or anything like it--it's the outlook for crudites... WTF?
