Alright, so "Bugatti Veyron" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue for those not automotively inclined, but c'mon... "Beuagatty Vuyrohn?" In addition to being laughably old news, journalist Gina Redmond goes one better by butchering the supercar's model and manufacturer name in the course of her NBC-13 Birmingham broadcast. In the words of tipster Speed42, "...sounds like they're now producing the cars in a small Louisiana town by a bunch of highly-skilled Cajun mechanics." 

We shudder to think what Redmond would've uttered when faced with the likes of a Lamborghini Murcielago.

      Sadly, such is the history of the English language. How many words manage to get mangled is quite amazing, actually.

      It's a shame to see a reporter murder such a historic car's name.

      Now we all know why she is reporting the local news and not working for CarTV - I'm still rolling on the floor from BOE GAH TEE.

      Maybe she knows that reporter on did the story on BLACK AN GUS, the cows that got loose on the roads.

      Well, something I learned at journalism school back in the 90s: if you have a pretty face then you can skip the 4 year college education, 'cause is not necessary to get the job. I saw it many many times.

      But then you get "gems" like BOE GAH TEE..... even worst, over 2 years after the car was news.

      Oh dear!

      Almost as bad as a lot of people coming into the place I used to work to listen to those "bossy" (Bose) speakers. Fricken hillarious.

      Journalists aren't all gifted in the same way. For example, Gina Redmond probably wouldn't resort to a word like "automotively" in one of her reports!

      very cool theme; thanks!

      Um... So just how is it supposed to be pronounced, and how did this person pronounce it? People aren't being very clear.
