Fuck, Ryan Davis. RIP, big guy, your verbal flourishes are just one of the many reasons you'll never be forgotten.

Posted by hazyship

Pirates, guerrilla and hurricane all seem like Ryan using the Spanish equivalents of those words, with varying degrees of success.

Nier Quick Look. 23 minutes and 30 seconds. "Path is blocked" is pronounced by Ryan in a flourishy manner.

Posted by BisonHero

Ryan consistently pronounces Ubisoft as "Ooh-bee-soft". He very occasionally seems to remember that it is actually pronounced "Yoo-bee-soft", like in this week's podcast (7/19/2011).

Posted by Conny

He probably says "piratas" on account of it's the Spanish word for pirates. 

Posted by koca_koala@shaw.ca

In the Garshasp Quick Look he says "camera" as "calm-ah-rah". It's at around 6:10

Number 16. It's a reference from Kindergarten Cop.  Arnold- I have a headache. kid- maybe it's a tumor.  Arnold-AAAGH IT IS NOT A TOO-MAH. IT'S NOT A TOO-MAH

I don't know if it's been mentioned but I think the "Min" prefix is a call-back to when carrie gouskous said "Ray-min" once on a podcast instead of 'Rayman', without a hint of irony, and was subsequently mocked thenceforth for doing so.

#41 might be a reference to 1943's Warner Bros. short Falling Hare starring Bugs Bunny.  

  ...at the 1:30ish mark, Bugs pronounces 'Diabolical Sabotage' and I've long adapted that pronunciation, as such whenever Ryan uses sabotage all I can think of is this old cartoon.

Pretty interesting unique list.

This is awesome on so many levels.

Best list!

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Such win. And true, too.

Posted by theditor

The entomology for "Oh-Hi-ooo" might be a reference to the Neil Young "Four Dead in Ohio" song. 
 
Also, I might be mistaken but I think his pronunciation of nintendo might be more related to Mario than Iwata.

Sonic Colours?

I've been known to commonly use robit, Batmin, and zambie, ever since I started listening to the wonderful words of Ryan T. Davis.

Woops! Thank you sir! Fixed it! 
 
@Brackynews: I've been wrestling with whether or not I should add this one. I will now, since you have created demand! Haha.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Dude, I love this list.

Edited by Brackynews

Saying "Neen-ten-doe" like Iwata is enough of a flourish in my book.
edit: Also Kah-Nah-Dah is historically accurate.

Posted by Rmack

Just a quick note - "robit" is also from Homestar Runner.

This is suggestive.

" now, start updating the list with possible reasons why he pronounces things that way...obviously "Frah-gee-lay" is a reference to A Christmas Story..right? "
I would love to if I had the slightest idea. I could post in user ideas, like yours and ColnelT's.   
This is obviously a fair bit after A Christmas Story but I'm pretty sure I remember Homer Simpson saying "frah-gee-lay" at some point (although that itself could be a reference to ACS). "
yeah well that point it just turns into a chain, Homer saying Frah-Gee-Lay would be a reference to ACS, so even if Ryan was referencing the simspons, in the end he would be referencing ACS......my head is going to explode.. "
To make this worse, both ACS and The Simpsons could be referencing an older use of this joke. Groucho Marx in  "Animal Crackers" from the 1930's. Mr. Davis is either an old soul, or he is the undead Groucho Marx

I wouldn't say so, because isn't that just how it's pronounced by the people in the studio? "
Yeah, that's the correct punctuation of the name.  "
I refuse to believe that. "
That's how it's pronounced. Look it up.

" The origin of the "-min" must come from Superman: The Movie, and Marlon Brando's pronunciation of "Krypton" as "Kryp-TIN." Legend has it that Brando became fatigued during the delivery of a line and couldn't form the "-ton" without passing out, resulting in a "-tin" instead.  Ryan appears to have adopted it for other words, and I support him fully. "
i always assumed it was saying it like you would a last name. like the name Bateman, you don't say it bate-man, you say it bate-min. so like saying "oh this is my good friend Ron Spiderman", at least that's how it's always sounded to me.

@Xeiphyer: Ah! I remember that fellow. But I still don't think that's it. In the movie they seem to put more emphasis on the "AY" in his name, whereas Ryan drops it to an "ah".

@DanielJW: The girls pimp was named 'Upgrayedd' =P Just a guess though

I've seen Idiocracy, but I can't see where you're getting that from. Is there a specific quote in the movie?
