ENGLISH IS NOT MY NATIVE LANGUAGE SO AFTER SEEING THIS POST A MILLION TIMES I FINALLY GOOGLED THE PRONUNCIATION AND NOW I AM SO ANGRY
It is based off of an Italian word that meant commander or something like that. English is a language of mutts, a language that got it’s roots form Germanic tribes (Angels and Saxons) and then fucking added Gaelic and Welsh and a German and the Norman dialect of French and like a million other languages to finally become modern English, and It is still ever changing, because British English is different than American English, and Australian English, and American English has so many different colloquialisms based on region that it’s fucking amazing that we all can understand each other. I once heard that English is one of the hardest languages to learn, and I understand why, we have more words that break the rules than actually follow the rules, we have words that came from other languages are still spelled the same, and we pronounce bologna (Ba-lon-ey) We have a fucked up language, but when used correctly it can sound ever so eloquent.

Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
