Spoken by a character in an animated cartoon:

"They're all members of the Venture _clique [klik]_."

I don't think that I've ever heard "clique" pronounced as other than
[klIk] before.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
