Is that the correct pronunciation?! I never knew. That is the one word I hate with a passion because those R' just trip me up, lol. It is one of my favorite condiments but I just say Lea & Perrin's, lol. I can say wista-shurr easily. Thank you for posting this.

It's pretty close—allowing for diffs in vowel sounds & for those who don't drop their r's ​​​​​​
I like your solution of Lea & Perrin's, too, tho! ​​​​

Does one look more right, or is there one that would make you say 'no thanks'?
The Associated Press Stylebook, which most newspapers follow, uses OK, the same as used by Webster's New World College Dictionary and Merriam-Webster.
