How to pronounce Buddhist

lobsterlobster Veteran Veteran

As far as I am concerned Buddhist is pronounced Bud (as in bud light, a form of pre-shine flower, friend) and heist as in 'stolen friend'. Thereby denoting how our true Buddy Nurture has been grafted away ...

Similar Ms Conceptions exist eg.

Some believe hist is pronounced in parceltongue ... hissed
Bu is pronounced Boo! as in wake up ...

Many mantra have not yet been translated into pigeon inglish. Can you help?

    What accent of English do you have? I am in awe of your ability to pronounce human phonemes at all through your maxillipeds, Lobster.

    I ask, because in the accent I know, Bud-heist would sound the same as "Bud, iced."

    On a good day: Bhu-dissed.
    On a bad day: And this is any of your business, because...?
