The poll title became less relevant once I added a random third question, but that's how you know you're answering one of my polls. I also forgot to add a neutral option to said question. Now that I think about it, I don't know why I'm still allowed to post polls.

Poll #1821857 Because I have always wondered this.

How do you pronounce OMG when you see it written out?

oh-em-gee
28(35.9%)
oh my god
21(26.9%)
omigod (more rushed together)
19(24.4%)
something else?
10(12.8%)

How about WTF?

double you-tee-eff
19(24.7%)
what the fuck
52(67.5%)
what the ___/ffff/eff/other substitute for curse word
2(2.6%)
something else?
4(5.2%)

Do you have any feelings on Lana del Ray?

Love her!
5(6.6%)
I like at least one song
12(15.8%)
Don't like her
4(5.3%)
Can't stand her
2(2.6%)
Who?
53(69.7%)

I don't read out OMG. I'm not sure why, but it just doesn't register as any sort of audible sound within my head, the same way I would read: :)

Ooh, that one's interesting, I like it.

I either read out the letters in my native tongue (Finnish) or just sound them out.
26th-Feb-2012 11:46 am (UTC)
wow, I didn't even think about seeing letters in different languages...good answer.

I'm neutral on the last one. Also, depending on the context and amount of exclamation marks, I may read those differently. I answered how I read them most often.

Once I read out on the back of a package "0mg Cholesterol" as "Oh My God, Cholesterol".

Aaaaand we have a new winner. XD

I would like Lana del Rey a lot better if someone would smack her upside the head and tell her to stop whining. Oh, and to write another song, as she only seems to know one.

For the acronyms: I flip-flop between sounding out what they really mean, pronouncing the letters individually, or pronouncing them in a rush.

I pronounce them "omg" and "wit-fuh." I especially like saying "omg." There should be more varied combinations of consonants in our language.

To the last question: I chose 'who?' because there was no option for 'know but feel indifferent'.

I haven't heard any of her music, but from what I've heard about her, I have no interest to.

I 'pronounce' OMG , similar to the first option, but in German.
ommgeh(the 'e' of 'em' is swallowed as it is often in my regional language ;) (like 'nen instead of 'einen'
never heard of this lana delrey.(and I havent got any interest either)

I haven't heard of her either, but if you don't know anything about her, how do you know you don't have any interest in her? =P

Well I have a cettain preconception in my mind about her that tells me she is not unlike any other taylor swift hannah montana kind of people- I may be totally wrong of course but I prefer to avoid any musically hyped females ;)
20th-Mar-2012 03:16 am (UTC)
Ohhh, I see xD

I pronounce them both really fast in my head...so omg sounds like OMIGOD and wtf sounds like whutefuh? I know, it's silly.

Strangely, I will pronounce the letters instead of saying the phrase when I speak them out loud.
