We get Nichard Rixon
One time I was 9%.
May the Lord be with you as He is with me.
Know of anyone in that 8% who pronounces it “Wiffy”? (Who were Nixon’s go-to NFL and NCAA teams anyway?)

@Gweedo it’s legal here Murray
It’s good to see you post! I couldn’t resist adding my “premium” like, lol.
Good to see you too. ;-)
That must have been as unpleasant as hell with Nixon attending games, you know how nervous the Secret Service is
Boomers had practice in Philadelphia. We once had a rock radio station with the call letters WIFI. It was pronounced “why-fye” just like the wireless internet today. Unfortunately, WIFI-92 is now a country & western station called 92.5-WXTU.
I think 8% is a gross underestimate.
2010 I needed a new laptop, and as I was visiting my daughters in the UK, I popped into Dixons. I was discussing with the sales-girl the spec I needed, memory, ports, speed etc. Oh and of course WiFi (pronounced (Wee Fee). She looked at me as if I was an alien. “Wahh…?”
I’d been living in France since 2002, just five years after WiFi had appeared. For those eight years I’d only heard it pronounced Wee Fee. France, Spain, Hungary, Belgium, Netherlands and even Arkansas all pronounce it Wee Fee …
There maybe other countries who pronounce it Wee Fee but I don’t know from personal experience.
Where do RBION get their facts ?
Nixon loved football so much he would secretly tape the games and bug coaches phones to learn the game plans.
Well it’s wee-fee in San Michoacano de Pacayama Hoighastena en El Rio. ~ Steve, lost again but I have my chair and my sandwich.
Take care, may bearded mall Santa Eleanor “They Squirm In My Lap And Make Demands And Cry And Yell About My Breath But I Love Them One And All And Probably Will Not Murder Very Many Of Them” McMansonord be with you, and gesundheit.
A friend was telling me about the “Me Mes”. The what? “Me Mes”. He meant Memes!!
from now on i’m calling it wiffy too…i’m starting a wiffy movement…are you wiffy me?
Nixon carried that ‘love’ for the game over into the Vietnam war. He had a heavy hand in it, with things like “operation linebacker”. Westmoreland hated it, but had to pretty much go along with it.
For all of you pharmaceutical fans, and I’m sure there are none, WFI (water for injection) is also pronounced wiffy
Madea thought WI-FI was slang for waffle…
What does WI-FI stand for???
The Wi-Fi factoid must refer to America only. In Spain and France, close to 100% pronounce it Wiffy. In Spanish-speaking Latin America it’s usually pronounced the American way. It can be pronounced either way as Wi-Fi actually doesn’t stand for anything (it doesn’t stand for Wireless Fidelity or anything of the sort).
He’s almost as intrigued by feces as he is by semen
In Europe, it’s pronounced “wee-fee”. Never heard of “wiffy.” I’ll have to ask my wifey.
The Nixon fact puts “Sock it to me” in a different light.
Those hilarious cut-ups at the CIA, sending out rib-tickling tweets while subverting American democracy and icing perceived enemies around the world. I love those guys!
Do those same people pronounce SyFi as SIFFY?
