Correct Chilean Pronunciation.

Does it piss you off when those phoney newscasters try to put a foreign sounding spin on international names???
~
They're clueless on pronoucing "China" or "Japan" with a foreign sounding spin, but give them a name like "Bosnia" or any Hispanic name,  and it's off to the land of obnoxious, presumptuous intellectualism.
~
I don't care how the Chileans say the name of their country.  We pronounce it as "CHILLY"...
~
So if you hear one of those dipshits pronoucing it as "CHEE-LAY",  just try not to get too riled up.   We have to make room for pretentious assholes in our tolerant society.
~
And just rounding them up and dumping them into Cambridge coffeehouses is no solution.
