One of my favorites.  

Totally forgot about Booney.  Pretty sure I heard it called that.

I believe also that you can drop the r in shlot.  And I used to be neighbors w/Cap'n Plaid in Sterksbrah, which of course is Vermaunt, not French.

My rosters used to have a lot more Fr'anadian.  When in doubt, I always went with the VT pronunciation.  Lots of Grolyas and Booshers and Doobies.
