    @stu_rush @amyepen @nprscottsimon @NPRWeekend @RadioKitty @NPRNedWharton Australian here. Why do Americans say "e-moo", instead of "eem-you" for emu? Its actually thought to be a Portugese word for a large bird, however in Australia, having Americans call it an 'eemoo' is akin to dragging ones fingernails down a blackboard. Please don't :)
