Edward Woodward

Definitely gets the prize for being most awkward to say. I remember Benny Hill doing a joke in which he was asked who his favourite actor would be. His response was (and you have to do it with the right accent) "I would say that Edward Woodward would." Sounded like "Edwoodwoodwoodwood."  BounceGiggle

yeah we pronounce the 'ward' in edward the same as 'wood', but you (I'm assuming you're U.S.) put more of an emphasis on the 'R', am I right? name probably sounds stranger to us than you...maybe

Canada actually, but yeah, we put more emphasis on the 'R' which does make it less funny, but also more awkward to say.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
