Boots on the Ground Tackles ‘Boehner’ Pronunciation

It can’t be easy for the average person with a bland name to comprehend just how many boner jokes that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has had to endure in the course of his lifetime.

So what’s a few more?

Joey Boots, contributor to the Howard Stern Show and wayward videographer, has advice on how we should all be saying the Speaker’s name. What’s he trying to do, make Boehner cry?

And then he went for the tear jerker and spoke of American being potentially dumb, no less a few days before the 4th.

UPDATE: An anonymous reader writes in, “Actually, since Boehner is a German name, it would be pronounced closer to “Burner.” Not a question of dumbing down English; just dumbing down German.
