It's pronounced Boot-Edge-Edge ?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the General Discussion forum).

So this is the proper pronunciation for Mayor Pete ? I've heard several different (mis)pronunciations, but I think calling him just Mayor Pete is easier ! This guy is a rising star so I think it would behoove us all to pronounce it right, right?!

1. "Mayor Pete" isn't going to work if he's our nominee for President.

We need a proper pronunciation guide, or President Asshole will make "jokes" about it.

Well, realistically, he's going to do that anyway.

4. After a review by forum hosts...locking.

Per the decisions and instructions of the DU Admins, all OP's regarding Democratic candidates for the Party's nomination for President are to be posted in the Democratic Primaries Forum. Please post your OP there. Thanks

5. Yes, Pete's own suggestion works pretty well

He said to say "budda judge" -- That makes it basically two syllables, the other suggestion is more difficult and for me created three syllables - boot edge edge -- if you practice and say it quickly, it gets easier - and I noticed the difference in udge vs edge.

It's nice that people are trying to pronounce it
