I'm not Jewish, and I never heard of Purim until I watched the hilarious, "For Your Consideration."

Home for Purim...

Adam, you took the words right out of my mouth. I was about to post the same thing. I thought that film was very funny! 'Home For Purim."

And the way they were pronouncing it-"Perrum"

Oh, that's not the actual pronunciation? I honestly thought it was.

Someone needs to educate this gentile...

That's one of the things that made it film so funny. They didn't know how to pronounce it (it's "poor-em") plus the fact that they had the most non-Jewish looking and acting actors playing the roles. Especially C. Ohara! Brilliant!

Wrong.

It's "Pu-Reem."

Um, no, I am not wrong. There is more than one pronunciation. Look it up.

There is nothing to look up, Jane dear.

It's Hebrew.

There may be more than one English phonetic spelling that misleads the uneducated to believe that it is pronounced incorrectly, but there is only one pronunciation of this Hebrew word.

While you're contemplating, think of how important your messages on the main board are. For instance, ,telling someone to eat a Dick. You know, stuff like that hon...
