Rod - Dude, iguana and jaguar are both Spanish/Mexican words. The are pronounced with Spanish inflection. Porche is not mispronounced, it's just shortened for ease of use into a single syllable like many words. British folk can be forgiven for mispronouncing Spanish/Mexican words, but Americans should not be. Freakin' Canadians, yeesh ...

By the way, and way off topic, everyone take a look at the aurora shot on Saturn on today's APOD. Weird shit.

EDIT: Replaced "infliction" with "inflection", thanks to jabber.
