Ah another MAM-ogram.  There was a topic here, of course not addressed in his personal attack on me.  I enjoy collecting these.  What should I call it.  The collective wisdom of contributors to this list.

Of interest here is that no one has heard of the pronunciaton YAH-hoo as the majority form, even though that's the way the pronounces it.  Very very strange.
