PRONUNCIATION HELP?

Anyone know how to pronounce Tegucigalpa? Using it in a lightning round and don't want to say it wrong.

Thanks!

My sound isn't working and I can't find my sound driver disk to sort it out. That's why I asked, cuz I can't hear the danged audiofiles.

The only internet sounds I can hear are in Java applets.

Pretty cool, this trivia research - I'd never heard of this city until today, and it's turned out to be a very interesting place, a twin capital. Its sister capital is Comayaguela - maybe I should've used that one, but Tegucigalpa is bound to sound funnier, however it's pronounced.

Just call it "The Place with the Scariest Airport in the World."

Landing at Teygoose is bettter than any of the rides at Magic Mountain.

For those who are intrigued by Moose [s] being gooosed
[possibly in Tegucigalpa- pronounced --- te goosee see gal pa]


THEM MOOSE GOOSERS
How about them moose goosers
Ain't they recluse?
Up in them boondocks
Goosin' them moose

Goosin' them huge moose
Goosin' them tiny
Goosin' them meadow-moose
In they hiney

Look at them moose goosers
Ain't they dumb?
Some use an umbrella
Some use a thumb

Them obtuse moose goosers
Sneakin' through the woods
Pokin' them snoozy moose
In they goods

HOW TO BE A MOOSE GOOSER?
It'll turn you puce
Gitchy gooser loose and
Rouse a drowsy moose!!!

Al, Go to the pantry and take a shot out of one of those brown bottles. Things will look different to you.

Rev, maybe it was like landing at Acapulco. Which was still not as bad as the cab ride down the mountain; I spent the whole two weeks worrying about the trip back up.
