BaD Radio – Passive Agressniff

This dog is aggressniff.

A while back, Dan McDowell noticed that a few people were having difficulty with pronouncing the word “aggressive aggressiveness.”  He initially chalked it up to a one-time mistake, but then he noticed that this was a common problem that affected both ebony and ivory speakers alike.  The problem became so rampant that it is now a recurring segment on BaD Radio.  In fact, I think the P1 community widely received my suggestion for Dan’s new twitter name, @PassiveAggressniff.  Unfortunately, it’s slightly too long and Dan hates twitter and the P1.

      A lot of people requested it, but now that I’ve put it up, a lot of people gave it a crappy vote. Idunno…*shrug*….*fart*

    I really hope you have an audio vault ready to get the good UnP1 to get through dry dock.

    AP, as I recall, at least with respect to Magic and Herschel, the word at issue was “aggressiveness.” May be wrong, but that’s my recall.

      You are correct! They’ve done this segment several times, and I think it’s morphed from “Agressiveness” to just plain old “Aggressive”. I know I’m going to screw that word up in the future thanks to this.

    I love this segment so good-strong it makes me want to cry my pants. And the segment from a couple weeks ago if you have it *wink*
