Because it originally came from the marshmallow plant back in ancient Egypt...pronunciations change a lot over time I guess.
It isn't marshmellow because after eating a lot of them you aren't mellow; you are hyper from the sugar.....
Hmm well that is a good way of looking at it too. Either way I don't care because they are delicious. :P
Yep.. I like to take a couple of them and start to mash them up, like you would with dough. They get all sticky like taffy; so good. Only problem is your hands get sticky.
Haha, nothing wrong with that. I like the mini ones and like to throw them up and catch them in my mouth.
Ah okay. And yeah, it takes some practice to get good at it. When I was younger I used to choke all the time. The other day I had some of the larger ones and my brother wanted me to throw one across the room to him so he could catch it in his mouth. I threw it right into his mouth, he didn't even have to move; it was pretty awesome. :P
My point is that the English language is crazy. Those examples are basically the same letters but are pronounced vastly different.
i have no idea, but that's a great point u just pointed out. :) i never thought of that.
well, that was a really good question u gave out. i'm proud of you. :)
ur welcome. ;)
Because we are ALLOWed to eat them
because everyone pronounces it incorrectly...go watch sandlot and you'll see what i mean
