    English is indeed a massive clusterfuck of a language

    No consistency issues. Acronyms are often pronounced as completely different words if they can. It's totally fine.

    No one I know says Jif.

    Now let me go clean that machete of mine.

    @Flygger the ranter comes from Israel, so I think it does sound right for him, for other languages the h wouldn't be good in there, I'd rather write kerekter or even kerektr to make it sound more like character (at least for Germans or Slovaks)

    @theNox I was just wondering since I'm a non-native English speaker and it didn't sound right to me...

    I get it, but it's just not objectively true ;)
