Dialect clash

I was startled to hear on Adult Swim an ad for something or other for
women. This whatever was called "Your Hole!" Of course, pushing the
envelope is AS's signature move. But, even in a cartoon sketch, a
product for women called "Your Hole!" seemed to be "taking integration
*too* damned far!"

I looked up and was slightly disappointed to see a legitimate ad for a
legitimate women's-health-scam product called "You're Whole!"


(I.e. for me, _you're_ is "yoor" and not "yore.")

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.
