I learned to pronounce it "poin-set-ee-uh" but we're sort of stupid around here...

We tend to add syllables where none exist, and subtract some from their rightful place. We also freely add consonants where we think they should be. Hence, point-set-a. If you said "poin-set-ee-uh" you'd be preemptively gay bashed on sight, even by frilly libs.

Would that I could. A couple of mushmouthed taxi drivers saying things like "boygu." Thank god it's captioned for the non-intellectually impaired.

Without seeing it I'm guessing it is two italian looking guys who are uttering nonsense at each other using an exaggerated Brooklyn accent that most people think is a Philly accent, but isn't even close in reality.

I won't see it since we don't have Carl's Jr. here. Further, no fast food chain would ever promote any kind of "philly cheesesteak anything" in Philly because if they did they would be preemptively gay bashed on sight, even by frilly libs.

I guess it just wasn't that good.  Normally, my jokes hit you square in the forehead. Wink
