    Howard. It was his passive/aggressive way of saying it, as to not offend said blaeks.

    For some reason I think I recall Grandpa Al Lewis saying it.

    Or maybe it was Billy West pretending to be Grandpa and saying it that way.

    *facepalm* It's from the first season of "Survivor" and some hillbilly who pronounced "BLACK" as "BLAEK".

    +1 on Jimmy The Greek when he was explaining why "The Blaeck is a better athlete".

    Jimmy the Greek. It's an exaggeration of his accent.

    And if I remember correctly it was "the bleak atha-leet, was bred that way" "they have an extra bone in their leg"

    I'm going with Rudy from Survivor.
    He might not have been the first but he sure as hell pronounced "bleak" exactly like it's spelled.
