My parents can't say it. My in-laws can't say it. The waitress at the restaurant that I get the dry-rub chipotle ribs for lunch can't say it. The bar-tender that tells me how good those ribs are also can't say it.

Can you say it? Why do so many people struggle with this?

I'm really hungover, but wasn't there a thread about this already?

Used to go to Subway on lunch break with a friend from work. He would ask for the "chip-ol-tee" sauce. Every time. :facepalm:

Yes, that's how many people say it. "Chip-ol-tee".

The "t" is clearly before the "l" in the word. Yet, these same people have no problem saying "Brett Favre" even tough those letters are pronounced backwards.

Since this is a pronunciation thread, what about "Cirque Du Soleil'?

Am I the only one who calls it Circus Oh-Lay?

Not saying Chipotle correctly is actually natural selection at work. It prevents the smarter organisms of our species from suggesting it when searching for meals.
