Huh? Whatchew mean?
Dub-ya dub-ya dub-ya: 6 syllables.
Whirr-uld why-ud way-ub: 6 syllables.
I picked up dub-dub-dub from watching Richard Metzger's interview show
back in the day. As a neologism, it sounded unnatural at the time, but
it grew on me. Of course, if the site's set up right, you can leave it
I still wince when I hear someone on the radio say, "Aitch-tee-tee-pee
colon, or is that a semicolon, backslash backslash, double-you
double-you double-you, period..."
