    you’re so dumb you cant even identify a comedy video when you see one. its obvious you got this idea from a comedy video made solely for fun and not to state or clarify their phonetics. im a ghanian who lived in nigeria before, which comprises of different tribes, and every one has got their own ways of pronouncing words of which the wrong pronunciations are mainly used by the less educated ones especially the Ibos or sometimes Yorubas and Hausas.. and we ghanaians, we eventually do thesame wrong pronunciations badly.. Pastor-Pasteh, Mother-Motheh, Brother-Brotheh so on and so forth. its obvious you are out of news. and so foolishly enslaved in clear jealousy over your higher competitors. i feel nothing but sorry for you who posted this stupidity.
