It was #1 on my list to Greg... but unless a few others had it on their list I doubt it makes the top 50.

Agree, this would be a great choice.  Donald Pleasance has always made great riffing fodder.

Not to mention being the only person in the history of cinema to be eaten by a white corpuscle...

I wonder if his inability to pronounce "Puma" would come into play?

Well, because of our "crazy" English accents, that's actually the way we say it.  :)

Is that right? You also say "Jaguar" weird, so perhaps it's a racial inability to pronounce the names of jungle cats...

Yeah, we're making up for the fact that we don't pronounce the silent 'u' in words in "colour."  :)

One thing that would drive me to kill an englishman (Asides from the fact he might be related to simon cowel) is they way they say "Mee-thane" instead of "Meh-thane". ARGH!!!!!!

The "Pew-Ma" pronunciation of puma always bothered me, but then again, whatever, the damn cat has so many names what with cougar and mountain lion and all.

This Englishman doesn't.  Neither do any of the English people I know do.  :)

Oh OK have to say though I've never heard anyone mention the Mountain Lions except to call them Cougars so I've always thought they pronounced it the correct way ;)

the correct way ;)

Lies!

While Webster's lists both pronunciations as correct, the word itself is transplanted from Spanish.  The Spanish pronounce it "poo", not "pyoo."  So I'll stick with the source over you wacky Britons.

(Although, to be technical, Spanish did itself swipe the word from Quechua, the language of the Incas.  And if I'm reading the phonology correctly, a native Quechua speaker would actually pronounce the "u" like the "oo" in "book."  But since the Spanish already somewhat bastardized the word, I have far too much respect for Native American culture to bastardize it further by jamming an Anglo-"pyoo" on there.)
