The first new word for the day is “hedgehog.” Adding syllables, the first respondent tries “Hedge A Hug.” Working through several volunteers, we hear, “hen-guho,” “Edgehog,” and “Heguh hog” before finally getting one person to say the word correctly.
As you watch, it just keeps getting more hilarious. The second word is “Squirrel.” Some of the volunteers show visible disdain about the word choices. “Square friend” is our favorite mispronunciation.
