The Fab Five of “Queer Eye” cannot seem to agree on what those little chestnut-loving critters are called.
The people of Canada and the United States have been pronouncing “squirrel” wrong all this time, according to “Queer Eye” star Tan France. Apparently, North Americans do not put enough emphasis on the “el” in “squirrel,” instead pronouncing it “squirrl.”
Just a few minutes into the first episode of season three, France gets into a debate with his Canadian and American friends over the word’s pronunciation. It did not take Twitter long to meme the heck out of France and his passion for pronunciation.
The guys then spoke further about the debate on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
France attempted to explain once again how one should say squirrel, much to the amusement of the rest of the group. See more in the clip below.
Season three of “Queer Eye” premiered Friday, March 15 globally on Netflix.
