The perspective of that photo may make it look big, but you can hold out your own hands in front of you to test. Bigger than a rat or a squirrel, but smaller than a large cat, a skunk, an otter, or a beaver.

I've never understood why so many people say "ath-a-lete" instead of "athlete."

Or for that matter, why so many realtors can't say the word "realtor" correctly ("real-a-tor?" really?)

As of this game, 14 correct FJs in a row. Easily my record. And only a couple of lucky guesses in the bunch.

Some only pronounce it that way when selling homes to nukular families.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Because "thl" is an awkward consonant cluster for some people to get their mouths around.

I always pronounce it re-litter. Since that's what they do. I pick up the litter they leave at my front door, and then they re-litter a few days later. :lol:
