Long time no oupsed for you.
Here is a joke I found on a site which I am not sure I should cite :

Two tourists were driving through Wisconsin. As they were approaching Oconomowoc, they started arguing about the pronunciation of the town'sname. They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch. As they stood at the counter, one tourist asked the blonde employee. "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us ? Would you please pronounce where we are very slowly?
The blonde girl leaned over the counter and said : Burrrr gerrrr kiiiiing."

I advise you all to practice if you want to tell this joke to your friends.
And by the way, in a few centuries (decades ?), when blonde will be used to mean stupid even in dictionaries, students in etymology better be smart !
