Punny Fun

An exchange on Facebook with my phonetics and phonology professor from college who teaches in the UK. (Boroughs in NYC refer to the 5 districts: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.)

 A nail polish released in conjunction with one of the Shrek movies. N.B. many New Yorkers rhyme donkey with monkey, which at least from an orthographic perspective is not insane…

Which parts of NY? I’ve never heard anyone pronounce donkey that way in the 5 burros.
