Nick, I always think of Kiefer Sutherland, too, when I hear it pronounced that way! Personally, I never cared for him - in sixth grade, I fell head over heels in love with River Phoenix when I saw Stand By Me, and Kiefer Sutherland was the "bad guy" in that movie, so he kind of permanently etched himself into my brain as icky
GoodEats: wiz? eeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww.... that stuff is so scary. That is what is "traditionally" served on a Philly Cheesesteak, which is why, although cheesesteaks are truely the food of the gods, I do *not* get them from the popular restaurants. They are *so* good with real cheese. People seek out places that serve them on good Amoroso's rolls... then pollute them with that crap?
Ok, I think you have all inspired me to start saying "keh-FEAR". I liked that pronounciation, but felt... snobby saying it that way. I have a friend who *insists* on pronouncing every food word "accurately", even though it's not always right. It's, well, kind of embarrassing when she orders at Bucca di Beppo... So, I feel like, if I can't pronounce it correctly, I'd rather mispronounce it the same way everybody else mispronounces it :LOL but, if lots of people say "kef-FEAR", then I can't be too wrong!
