I mean, "Degrossi"? There's not even a f'ing letter O in it, Jeff! Why would you say it that way?

And he said it multiple times and the rest of the Bomb squad started saying it that way too. I'm way angrier about this than I really should be!

You should write them a strongly worded letter.

I'm offended by teen pregnancy and drug use and Drake.

@nitrocore: "Dear Bombcast,

I love all the content you guys put out, but every time you said "Degrossi", my hands reached ever so closer to my own throat because your mishandling of my country's great franchise made me want to die. Please take more care in the future.

Keep circulating the tapes,

Sor Eddie"

@dallas_raines: I'm offended by Drake as well. As the admin of the Degrassi cloudtag on another popular forum website, I have a very strict "fuck drake" rule.

As a Canadian I will officially apologize for Justin Bieber but not Drake

I'm guessing you're French-Canadian, but please do correct me if I'm wrong.

Never heard this word before. It's a surname? People always mispronounce surnames.

Degrassi is the best Drake ever got

I really like the old Degrassi. Some good stuff covered there.

Don't much care for the new one, but that could just be me get off my lawn-ing.

#16 Edited by GreggD (4487 posts) -

He pronounces it right, doesn't he? Every time I've seen any kind of ad for it, or anyone talking about it, they pronounce it like he does.

I think the way he had it was intentional/perfect actually. That deceptive smile in the still, followed by Jeff's response. Awesome.

I'm a Canadian, and's that's the way I thought it was pronounced on the Citadel.

Nah, Toronto. Incidentally, I've been to the actual De Grassi street. It's just a boring little dead end culdesac, sadly. I think there's a sign about how it's the birthplace of the franchise but that's it.

Probably just the latter... Season 12 just ended a little while ago and it was pretty much the best the show had been. Honestly ranked side by side with the classic S3 of TNG.

Really? I've never heard it pronounced any other way than "De-Grahssy"...Is this some weird American thing?

How about Celine Dion and Avril Lavigne? I have yet to see an Canadian apologize for those crimes against music.

Ya, but we did give them Ryan Gosling, y'all are very welcome.

You think that's bad listen to Brad and the other guy say "courier" in the DOTA videos, they pronounce it core-ee-er, it is infuriating!

#27 Posted by Sor_Eddie (90 posts) -

Look guys, we gave you literally every funny comedian in the 80s and 90s, I think we're entitled to export some bad music every now and then.

You know what all this reminds me of? The racial draft skit from the Dave Chappelle show.

@rollingzeppelin: I know! A lot of the time when Americans pronounce vaguely french-y words it freaks my Canadian ears out. D:

#31 Posted by falserelic (5412 posts) -

Well just send Jeff the message and let him know, but he probably doesn't give a fuck.

#32 Edited by Digiwth (151 posts) -

I actually wrote to my Member of Parliament about this. Canada is clearly not exporting its rich culture hard enough if people from nocal don't know how to properly pronounce degrassi.

@rollingzeppelin: I can't even pronounce it the way they do out loud! I am like incapable of saying ee-er like that!

I'm very sorry for not embedding this right, but it was too important to wait for my phone to work. And yes, Degrassi is better than ever and is consistently very funny and I hope Clare doesn't die and also where is Darcy?

@themanwithnoplan: I approve of your insert gif vs. drag and drop gif use. Clicking adds the necessary official dramatic effect.

Jay and Silent Bob were once on some sort of Degrassi. I pronounce it Degrahssi. That is the extent of my knowledge here. Have a nice day!

#39 Edited by Sor_Eddie (90 posts) -

@nuclear_chiron: Darcy is still doing humanitarian aid work in Africa. They've referenced her offhandedly a few times in the last few seasons, so she still exists.

#40 Edited by Animasta (14671 posts) -

I mean if you want to talk about proper TV exports from Canada, Orphan Black is the best (I just watched it all it's so goddamn good UNF)

(besides, skins is better than degrassi)

fuck Degrassi

#42 Edited by jsnyder82 (730 posts) -

I mean, what happened with Manny and Emma? They just kind of dissolved into nothingness I guess. The last time I ever saw an episode was in 2008, because my roommate was a girl.

#43 Posted by NUCLEAR_CHIRON (19 posts) -

@sor_eddie: Well yeah, but Clare is going to die! It just seems strange she isn't there. At least it is better than when Spinner had cancer and his sister had just stopped existing.

@jsnyder82: They got phased out over time after they graduated. The show is actually really good about not being about a bunch of 25-year-olds that hang around a high school.

Woo Degrassi!

I don't really have much of a comment after that. I un-apologetically love that stupid, stupid show.

To be fair, it's pretty gross and the cast is pretty gross (not personally, but in that 1980s way that only a show like Degrassi was able to capture). Honestly, I'm surprised how many people under 30 or 35 have even heard of Degrassi. When I saw it a few times on TV in the late 80s / early 90s, I was pretty sure even *I* was probably a late-comer to it.
