OMG, I had not heard this! That is hilaaaaaaaarious. Hehe, you just made me chuckle aloud. Congrats.
Speaking of, I see that 'nuclear' now is officially in the dictionary as having the alternate pronunciation "nyoo-kyuh-ler". The best part? At least on dictionary.com, they cite this second pronunciation as developing because of metathesis, which means (after I looked it up myself!) "the transposition of letters, syllables, or sounds in a word".
So, in essence, in my mind, at least - because enough people said it wrong, we ultimately made it an official pronunciation. Crazy cakes.
