  2. Cool! Now all you need to do is learn how to spell it. ;)

    Ooooo, that was nasty. I can't believe that I said 'spell it'. I meant to say 'play it'.

    Awright! The somewhat obscure ukulele reference gets some recognition!
     
  10. In all honesty HG I had to flip a quater to see if I would use Tiny Tim or Don Ho in my statement.

    :D

  15. Well, around these parts it's spelt ukelele.

    The spelling is like the difference between a:

    - ie lavalava
    - sulu
    - ie faitaga

    ie the same thing, different culture.
     
  16. That link says 'ukelele' is a variant of 'ukulele'. It may be a variant, just as are 'ukalale' and 'ukulale', but it's incorrect. I know, I'm from Alohaland. (Well, not really, but who's gonna know?)
     
  17. Just joking, don't take it to heart.

    Uh, no. You see, if "ukalale" and "ukulale" were variations of ukelele, they'd be in the dictionary. That's why ukelele (which was the way I learned to spell it, btw) is in the dictionary and "ukalale" and "ukulale" are not. :rolleyes:

    Jeez. I didn't even start the nit pickin'

    I give up.

    Turnaround is fair play.:p
