Disgusterous!
More of a portmanteau word than a deliberate mispronunciation, but whatever.

Re: Oral Sex: Greater risk for throat cancer than smoking

People who smoke are more likely to give BJ's, since they can't taste as well, and besides they're used to sucking on some disgusting thing in their mouth already. ;-)

Challenge!!!

Try to find the greatest ratio for ϕ/ϕ

Author found "annoying" with a ratio of : 249000/155000 = 1.60645161 *

"Sure" gives a ratio of: 2440000/28300 = 86.2190813 *

Can anyone do better?
