No, you had me second guessing myself, but it’s Bounty. Maybe they are a west coast thing?

No American I have ever met, including the people who make and market the product, call it bounTy... I have no idea why the letter T is in the name of the product (this has been the subject of a thing that annoys me in the past).

I'm now saying Bouny with my best American accent...

Maybe I should just say Almond Joy... or is that Armond Joy?

And they have the cheek to change some of our spellings to make the spelling more phonetic. I'll give 'em plow. Damn uppety colonists.

They get a bonus point for saying Greenwich Village in New York correctly.... which always strikes me as odd.

It’s nice when we can all agree on something and get annoyed together, as a whole. One big unhappy family :D

I (and New Yorkers) say Gren-itch Village... but everywhere else you get Green-wich and Nor-wich.

Not quite phonetically correct I'm sure, but you get the gist...

Not sure where I came up with that... apparently I was thinking of Orinoco!

Just ignore me and my senile ramblings!
