Can you accept "Doughnut" please. That's the fairly common way of spelling it.

Also, the Radioactive man catch phrase, was it not "Up and at them"? The idea being it would be said in the shortened form, 'Up and at 'em' and thus it would sound like, "Up and atom".

I have vague memories of an episode where Rainier Wolfcastle struggled with it and kept saying "Up and at them". Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.

Here's how it's transcribed at The Simpsons Archive: "Coach: Up and atom!

Rainier: Up and at them!

Coach: Up and atom!

Rainier: Up and at them!

Coach: [annoyed] Up and atom!

Rainier: [louder] Up and at them!

Coach: [covers his eyes] Better."

"In episode 2F09, when Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is a magic xylophone, or something? Ha ha, boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder."

I'll second the request for the inclusion of doughnut. I had the first and last letters and was confused when it wasn't the answer. Took me a minute to think of "donut", (which I always imagine should be pronounced as 'doo nut' when I see it.) doughnut should be a perfectly cromulent, accepted answer to the question.

"You don't win friends with sal-ad! You don't win friends with sal-ad!" One of Bart's best lines ever. And the conga line with Homer. This memory makes my day

No. Just no. Nuclear, as in relating to the Nucleus of an atom. Just because you and others mispronounce the word, doesn't mean you're right.

I highly suggest that if you aren't a big Simpsons fan that you don't reply to comments on Simpsons quizzes, as they are full of jokes from the show. That being said, noo-kyoo-luhr is a perfectly cromulent pronunciation.

Ha, I think I had forgotten what quiz I was commenting on :) I regularly teach Nuclear Science to teenage groups, and one of the first rules of the class is that if they say 'nucular' they will have to memorize the periodic table to pass the class. Only one kid has mispronounced it after that warning, because he already had it memorized, and he did it constantly. Micah, if you're out there, I still hate you.

Alternatively, you could open your mind a bit and consider the effect of linguistic prescriptivism in education. Judging people lesser for their speech, and gatekeeping education based on dialect markers, has a long history, and it's not a good one.

See Merriam-Webster's FAQ on nuclear.

I could, and in general I'm very open to linguistic shifts. However, when working with teenagers in this scientific field, there are some very tangible reasons to be hard nosed about this pronunciation. Kicking off the class talking about the correct pronunciation does a few things for me including defining the scope of the subject, establishing a level of precision and nuance, and setting the tone for a TON of other linguistic and etymological conversations we'll have throughout the course.

There was a study I came across a few years ago that looked at people's opinions on nuclear power. It found a statistically significant correlation (I don't recall the exact figures) that people who pronounced it 'nucular' were more likely to be opposed to nuclear power plants, and people who pronounced it 'nuclear' were more likely to be comfortable with them.
