      You’re right, stupid Americans! They also don’t use great words like: Cockwomble Snog Higgledy-piggledy Rumpy pumpy

      Bri-ish English is the pinnacle of language if you’re a muppet.

          Worcestershire is made of two words …Worchester and Shire …I know how to say both of those words… put them together and it’s War-chester-Shire… four syllables.

            a) it’s Worcester not Worchester

            b) the root is is wo + ceaster (the fort at Wo)

            c) wo is ellided to woo, ceaster to ster

            d) woo+ster = wooster, spelled Worcester

            e) +shire

            mate I am telling you it’s /wʊstəʃə/ I am english I can guarantee by how you’re saying it’s pronounced you are not why are you so confident when you couldn’t even point to it on the map there is no ch in there it’s just a c and cester is pronounced /stə/ if you really don’t believe me just go look at the wikipedia page it puts some r’s in there for rhotacisation but otherwise it’s the same as how I wrote it how can you be so confident while being so wrong

      1. It is difficult to apologize
      2. Try pronouncing worcestershire sauce
      3. Probably relates to the video this was commented on

        Ah okay, then i just didnt get the joke XD (propably because i find Worcestershire sauce quite easy to pronounce and couldnt find no connection of the second two with the first one) thanks for explaining though

          The third point is related to this video which the comment is in response to

          It could also be seen as poking fun at having to admit one’s inadequacy in some regard (as some people have a really hard time admitting to their shortcomings)

      I’m confused by your comment, was it meant to be a reply to someone else?
