    That's easy . . . . if it was pronounced like quick then when someone wanted one you'd think they talked like Elmer Fudd and send them to the 'bwick' store!

    started a topic Why???

    If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?
