Fuckin Funny!

As a former employee of Leo Burnett, I find this incredibly funny:

Leo Burnett Employees Still Trying To Figure Out How To Pronounce �Publicis.�

CHICAGO� Reeling from their recent purchase by French conglomerate Publicis, employees at Chicago-based Leo Burnett are struggling to learn the correct pronunciation of their new owner. Said sr. account director Scott Meldhenson. �For the love of Christ, why couldn�t we have just sold out to Omnicom or Interpublic or some other faceless holding company with a name you can say without sounding like a snail-eating twit. Instead, I�m getting corrected by everyone from the receptionist to the caterer every time I try to say 'Pub-LY-sis.' Or is it 'Pub-lee-SEE.' Whatever. Let�s just choose a pronunciation and go with it.� Added copywriter Matt Adelson, �So long as my raise goes through and they don�t mess with my 401k, I'll call them whatever they damn well please. Fucking Frenchies.�

Hilarious.
