The Word 'Penguins' Is Really Hard For Benedict Cumberbatch To Say, Apparently


Some words are a doozy to pronounce -- but is "penguins" really one of them?

Apparently it's tricky for jauntily-named British actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Deft YouTube user Graham Hughes points out that Cumberbatch just couldn't seem to pronounce the word correctly while narrating a 2009 BBC documentary series about wildlife on the South Pacific islands.

So, is it pengwings? Penglings? Let's call the whole thing off; we're cool with Cumberbatch calling things whatever he wants, as long as he does it in that voice.
