I don’t have a good way of explaining what makes Pronunciation Manual, a YouTube-based parody of the sexless and robotic pronunciation guides that afflict our online dictionaries, funny or useful in the slightest—other than to say “ty-wy-woo-ley-guh-hoodey.” According to the manual, that’s how you pronounce “twilight.” “Arianna Huffington” is “Nardo Fa-fa-fa-fa-fafa-fa.” “Schadenfreude” is “skooden frooty,” naturally. And the manual isn’t ashamed to tell you when it’s not sure about the correct way to say something, like “armoire.” (“You serious? Of course I know what it is. It’s a wood box for French people’s clothes—a mwah-mwah.”) Nor is it shy about expressing “conch” as a series of phlegmy sounds, bleating out “fax piss” for “faux pax,” or pronouncing “Gangnam Style” as “goozen doozen” only after a long, resigned sigh.
