Knuckleheads like us

My co-worker is trying to order some software over the telephone. It's quite clear the person he is talking to is not of this country. My co-worker, in attempting to spell something for the guy (what, I'm not quite sure), just said, "K as in knuckles." The guy promptly put him on hold. That was more than five minutes ago. He hasn't come back yet. I'm afraid "K as in knuckles" must be some kind of major insult in the guy's home language.

REally funny way to pronounce K ( from alien's point of view), he could have said "knot" "knight" "knee" ... as well but what's the point - there's no "K" sound when you spell it !!

The best way is always stick to personal names .
