Here’s What Dogecoin and Billie Eilish Have in Common


Dogecoin and Billie Eilish have one thing in common

People have struggled to get their tongue around Dogecoin this year.

The name of the iconic cryptocurrency meme, which eight years yesterday, is on the list of worst pronounced words on television compiled annually by the US Captioning Company.

Newscasters also struggled to pronounce Ethereum, the name of the second-largest blockchain, “cheugy,” the pejorative neologism that mocks trends started by millennials, and “Dalgona,” the name of the South Korean candy popularized by Netflix’s popular survival drama series “Squid Games.”

Surprisingly, teenage superstar Billie Eilish still has her last name mispronounced on TV despite being in the spotlight for years. The pop singer rose to huge fame after her gargantuan hit, “Bad Guy” hit the charts worldwide in 2019. Her debut studio album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” won first prize at the 2020 Grammys.

People also tend to botch the surnames of Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas and football player Jason Kelce.

Last year, immunologist Anthony Fauci and Vice President Kamala Harris were also on the list.
