    Stern this week was talking about coffee or something and when he said "carafe" he pronounced it "caraf-eee"

    Is he that out of touch that he doesn't even know how to pronounce simple kitchen items?

    Wanna hear something terrible.....?

    One of my son's friends in high school was from Hong Kong. He lived with us for senior year (kind of like an unofficial exchange student) My son told him the container on my counter was called a "coffee giraffe." To this day, that's what he thinks it's called. :facepalm:

    Howard's a Long Island rube. There is nothing gracious or cultured about him. Yes he writes beautiful notes, but he was sixty when he figured that out.

    Doug Heffernan says it's a fruity word and should never be uttered at all.

    That's what passes for humor on that show now, pronouncing words funny on purpose.

    It's too bad that Bob Levy is banned from the show.
    The 45 minute bit with him trying to spell carafe would have been comedy gold too.
