Batmin

" Batmin "
I don't know how to accommodate that. Really any super-being ending with "man" then becomes "min". Should I include all of the superheros because of this, or just make a note of it under my Spider Man entry? It seems too repetitive to all get their own entries.

Add Batmin. Re: Lego Batmin. 
 
Also Megamin.

Sentence enhancer? You mean like this:
 
 

 
 
(Also, "you mean like this" is another SpongeBob reference. Does that make me a hypocrite?)

Posted by ColonelT

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.

Edited by DanielJW
@Video_Game_King: It makes you a man worthy of being the first to point out that reference.  
 
@ColonelT: I too enjoy some good Ryan Davis etymology.

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. I'd credit the contributor, of course. 
 
I think I remember why he says sword the way he does, and I also remember a video where he mentioned the Ohio pronunciation. I should start digging.

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..

@Kevitte: @Phished0ne: Accommodated.

You should totally add "villain - vill-ayne"

PokeMans.

@homewrecker: @Belonpopo: Updated for you folks.
Posted by homewrecker

Found a new one: "arrows - arriz"

Posted by Phished0ne

The Rocket Launcher one is a reference to the announcer in the Metal Slug games. it should also  be "Rawket Lawn-chair" .  
 
for an example of the pronounciation, goto  http://rocketlawnchair.ytmnd.com/  i am pretty sure that is the sfx from Metal Slug.

Aw man, I can't believe I missed that one!
Posted by SuperfluousMoniker

Could Vit-ah-mins be an A Clockwork Orange reference?

Posted by DanielJW
@SuperfluousMoniker: I read the book and saw the movie, but I haven't a clue what you're referring to. 
Posted by SuperfluousMoniker
@DanielJW: It's probably just the British pronunciation of it. I haven't seen the movie recently enough to pinpoint an exact scene it's in, but I distinctly remember it being in there.

Updated. But out of curiosity, where does he say it like that? 
Posted by Xeiphyer

For the Upgrade one, could that be a reference to that Idiocracy movie?

I've seen Idiocracy, but I can't see where you're getting that from. Is there a specific quote in the movie?
Posted by Xeiphyer
@DanielJW: The girls pimp was named 'Upgrayedd' =P Just a guess though
Posted by DanielJW
@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".

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.

Does him pronouncing Ubisoft "oobisoft" count?

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.
