    If I got the word "Little Pig Boy" I'll probably say "I'd like to solve the puzzle" and I would perhaps think that the moderator would say "This is not Wheel of Fortune"

    Its fun when a random SNL video on youtube cause me to realize that i grew up pronouncing the chagrin as chargin.
    So much to my chagrin i will continue to pronounce it as chargin, but in my heart know I'm a simple person pronouncing the word wrongly ^-^
