Milbank on BROW-klee

From a washingtonpost.com chat with Dana Milbank and Dana Priest:

Philadelphia: What is the correct pronunciation of the name “Dana”?

Dana Milbank: “BROW-klee.”

Dana Priest: What he is refering to our newly named executive editor, Marcus Brauchlis, who comes on board Sept. 8.

Dana Milbank: Apparently a lot of people think it’s funny that our new executive editor’s surname sounds like the vegetable broccoli.

I wish to say for the record that I find this absolutely radicchio. I have been peppered with this nonsense endlessly, and I carrot allow this to leek out any further. Lettuce squash this silliness and never allow it to sprout again.
