How to pronounce New Haven

09 August 2009 » Opinion, Peeves, Travel

A recent trip on Metro-North reminds me that I need to submit this script snippet to Seth MacFarlane.

Brian: Wait, what did you say?
Stewie: NEW Haven.
Brian: NEW Haven? You mean New Haven.
Stewie: NEW Haven.
Brian: You’re saying it weird. Why are you putting so much emphasis on the New?
Stewie: NEW Haven.
Brian: Say New York.
Stewie: New York.
Brian: Say New England.
Stewie: New England.
Brian: Say New Haven.
Stewie: NEW Haven.
Brian: You’re eating hair!

Sigh. If it’s still not clear, ask your local Connecticutioner / Connecticutlet before you embarrass yourself on the train.
