          In the south it's one syllable, pronounced "SURP".

            I grew up using Aunt Jemima, so I still prefer the fake stuff to real maple syrup.  Not something I normally admit publicly, since I live in Maine.  Driving down the roads in our town in the spring, you see lots of maple trees with buckets hanging from them.

              ... so I still prefer the fake stuff to real maple syrup. 

               

              Ugh! Someone served me some of that stuff the other day - truly 'orrid!

                Ha, this thread led me to get one right ahead of the contestants on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me Saturday.  The answer is maple syrup.

                Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                  Nice going Canada.

                   

                  It helps the entertainment value if you read all the comments from the French Canadians in a certain accent...

                   

                   

                   

                  "it’s very difficult to trace and track maple syrup"

                   

                  or this...

                   

                  "Obviously those people stole the maple syrup to sell it somewhere"

                    You mean the fake stuff is 'orrid, right?!  'Cause the real stuff is amazing...I am so glad my DH and DS won't eat the real stuff--more for me!  They can have their nasty sweet brown slime!  I put that stuff with margarine and non-dairy whipped-topping.  *retch*

                     

                    $300-mil of syrup...wow.

                      Is it SIR-rup or SEER-rup or SEAR-rup?

                       

                      What is the difference, pronunciation-wise, between SEER-rup or SEAR-rup?  And I tend to go back and forth, sometimes it is Sirrup, sometimes See-rup.

                          Hmm.  It is subtle, but you'd hear the difference if I said it.  Probably is really like SEE-rup versus SEAR-up (sear like you do to meat).

                           

                            Around here I'd go with Sir Rup.  I did a search for Sir Rup and all I got was this... which was entertaining if off topic of this off topic topic...

                             

                             

                            Sir O of K: Surrender, varlet. Thou art the prisoner of me lance.
                            Bugs Bunny: I art? And whomsoever art thou, in thy cast-iron tuxedo?
                            Sir O of K: I, knave, am Sir O of K, Earl of Watercress, Sir Osis of the Liver, Knight of the Garter, and Baron of Wooster-cester-shister-shyster-schuster-shuster-shister-shire... shire.
                            Bugs Bunny: My, he's a big one! Hey, look, pressure cooker. I bet you know a lot of my friends. Ooh! Like, uh, Duke of Ellington, Count of Basie, Earl of Hines, Cab of Calloway, Satchmo of Armstrong.
                            Sir O of K: Upstarts and rogues. Never heard of them.
                            Bugs Bunny: Rogues, eh? Upstarts, eh? Look, Sir Rup of Figs, don't go around insulting my friends, or I shall get me a can opener and open thee up like a can of solid pack tomatoes.
                            Sir O of K: What? Wouldst tilt with me?
                            Bugs Bunny: Tilt with thee I will, and I won't wilt. Just lend me a weapon, that's all. That's all.
                            Sir O of K: Very well, thou stupid scoundrel. Prepare to meet thy fate.

                            I fly.

                              Quite the sticky situation.  

                               

                               

                               

                               

                               

                               

                              Someone had to say it.

                              Bring it on.

                                Ha ha, the Bugs Bunny dialog is the highlighf of my day (since I didn't run this morning).
