Actually theres some difference in how you pronounce it, I asked my English teacher and he said that when you say juice the "u" sound is longer... Sounds the same to me, so whatever. At least we got a great quote from Patman:


I hate Jews...


HAHAHA!!! Now you are doomed!! We shall get you!!

Doesn't sound anything like Jews. Different U, different S. Didn't fool me! No, sir. :P

S is Jews sounds like a Z. Ce in Juice sounds like a hissing S.

*runs away and puts towel on head*

I can't seem them, they can't see me, I can't seem them, they can't see me, I can't seem them, they can't see me....


Seriously though, Jews is like, Jooz, and juice is like joose. Like saying boose and booze....

<_<
>_>

Boose is a word! It's....the plural form of...well...something. Possibly the plural of Bearmanpig.

It still sounds funny, and we have a nice wuote from Patman. If he ever gets irritating you just have to quote that and down he goes!!

You wish.

Many a poor soul has tried that on me and I am forced to whip out the 'context' card.

i love the "I hate Juice" joke, i used it on a muslim friend of mine who insists he is Zionist.

Me: i know this may be stupid but just answer me anyway,  whats that stuff you get from oranges *mimes juicing an orange*

Jenaid: Juice?

Me: yeah, now say that you hate it.

Jenaid: I hate jews.

*akward pause*

Apparently I'm screwing this up. You don't put a U in every word that ends in -or?

I've found out that words that end in -tor don't turn into -tour in UK English.

So it's just these?

Colour
Favour
Behaviour
Flavour
Honour
Saviour
Savour
Neighbour
Harbour
Arbour
Labour

Can I also use an x for words like afflixion?

That I can think of, yes.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Since we're talking about language... I think I need to do another lesson on how to speak American good.
