    There is a channel called Pronunciation Book on YouTube that is full of the correct pronunciations of hard-to-pronounce words like Porsche, Glenfiddich, acai and escargo. Then there is this channel, called Pronunciation Manual, which is a hilarious parody that gives you all of the wrong, and side-splitting ways to say the same words.

    Think of it as an un-self-help guide for cracking your friends up. We’ve posted a few examples here but there are dozens more that you have to hear so be sure to check out the channel. Pwwuuoooooorsssheeeee.
