I still enjoy hearing how much people like their Vol-Keys! :
Hey mister, do you sell them thar Dine-A-Stars? No, what about die-nam-icks?
edited to add an afterthought</font>[/quote]The correct pronounciation for Dynastar is "DEEN-a-star," same as Dynamic are pronounced the same way ("DEEN-a-meek"), even though they're an Austrian or Italian company (I think Atomic bought them out - great race skis and nowadays great carving skis). Blizzard is pronounced as "blee-ZARD," another Austrian ski company.
Whereas the Germans think Sweitzerdeutsch is a disease of the throat and tongue, and what they think about Osterreichdeutsch (Austrian) is the way we treat most Polacks or Aggies, country bumpkins with fresh manure on their boots and some in their hair.
