    Here's a story from the liner notes of the Old 97s/Waylon Jennings 45rpm I picked up on record store day:

    In the late 90s, Waylon agreed to do the vocals on a couple of Old 97s songs. One line required Waylon to sing the phrase "an elixir" but he just couldn't sing it right. Finally, Rhett Miller, lead singer of Old 97s, asked Waylon to think of 2 lovely ladies making out and say "Annie licks her".

    Ok, it's not exactly what the op wanted but it's in the same ballpark.

    I just ordered a steak.
    I hope it tastes better than a wooden stake.

    Are these pronounced the same in Canadian: about; a boot? I've heard about the Mountie who wears a boot on his wooden leg.

    You know I've never understood the aboot thing. I don't know one Canadian who pronounces it that way. We say it more like abowt. Bow as in "I bow to you" not as in "bow tie".

    But the "eh" thing is not at all stereotypical. We really do say "eh" a lot. Eh?
