[color=#000000ost_uid0]It's Canadian too, I had a friend who used to do it all the time from Canada, but he kept getting teased about it, so he tried to stop using it. But, yeah, it's a common thing in Canada - I think, kind of like Americans and "like."[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]And then there's "GAH!" I picked up "GAH!" from the members of this forum. (or rather, a certain member of this forum...) It's stuck with me now...

I can empaphise - when I first moved to Lewis everyone picked up on the fact that I pronounced 'h' like 'aich', rather than 'haich'. Drove me nuts, especially as there's one in my name, and of course I had to spell it out to every teacher in the school what felt like three times over.[/colorost_uid0]

My dad found a limerick about them in a stall at a rest stop near the BC-ALTA border.

It was crass and involved digestive function.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]It's not just Lewis, though. I know I've run across it in Dickens at least once ([iost_uid0]David Copperfield[/iost_uid0], I think, but don't hold me to that) and I'm pretty sure elsewhere.[/colorost_uid0]
