Take my poll please

So during the Speed Scrap tonight, the pronunciations of my last name came up. Again. Apparently there is more than one way to pronounce graham cracker.... Any way, take my poll. I will announce the TRUE pronunciation when the poll closes. ;)

Definitely 2 syllables - GRAY-UM. I have a Southern mouth and couldn't pronounce a one syllable word if I tried!! Ya'll cannot make a SA-MORES without a GRAY-UM Cracker!!

well being from the south, I would say graaammm, because we tend to stretch things just a little, but most people would say gram.

It is so gram. Lorry says so. She's the boss of grammar and pronunciation. It doesn't hurt that I already agree with her anyway. :)

It's gray-um. But we do things differently in this neck of the woods. Or, we like to think we do.

I also know people who say Da-wayne or even Doo-wayne instead of Dwayne. But that's a whole different poll.

Comment moderation?!?!?!?

I don't say it like any of the above. I chose 'gram' because it is the closets, but I prefer to say 'graymm mm mmm' [like the cambels soup slogan... mm mm good? but without the 'good']

Well let me see.......I'm from the south but live in Minnesota. So I would have to say......"Gram". Now Paula Deen says, "Gray-um". I don't know. It could be both ways.
