Da hab ich doch was schönes in einem amerikanischen Internet-Glossary gefunden:

\"at\" sign, @ r Klammeraffe

Although the German for \"@\" (at) as part of an address should be \"bei\" (BY), as in: \"XYX bei DEUTSCH.DE\" (xyz@deutsch.de), most German-speakers PRONOUNCE \"@\" AS \"ET\" — MIMICKING ENGLISH \"at.\"

...aber *den* Bug (sic!) kriegen wir wohl schon nicht mehr aus unseren Hirnen Hast Du schon mal jemanden \"bei\" sagen hören?

Da müssen wir wohl mit leben...
