    when someone says Chanukah always makes me think they have a lot of phlegm in their throat.

    It's not an English word so it doesn't matter which way you spell it.

    Very phlegmmy language.

    I sent an mail to a co-worker wishing her a happy Hanukkah and she seemed offended and corrected me that she called it Chanukah. I was just being nice to her anyway. I wanted to answer back and ask her how she spelled cunt.
