Pet Peeve

The word is "cockroach." It's fairly phonetic (for English). Note it consists of two syllables, and only two syllables.

If you're going to say "cockaroach," go to the perfectly valid cucaracha instead.

I live in California. If your listener doesn't know basic Spanish nouns, that's their lack.

But "cockaroach" is still not a word, unless you're referring to the monstrous offspring of a rooster and a roach.

Note this rant has nothing at all to do with this morning's Psycho Donuts gig. Apart from myself, they're completely vermin-free.
