It is humorous (what's up with you Europeans always putting extra u's in words anyway?)

What's with Americans forgetting how to pronounce them? The inflection in prononunciation between how 'humor' and 'humour' is slight and subtle, but it exists.

Or do you prononounce "our" and "or" the same way, too?

Too often, Americans systematically mis-pronounce words, then gripe that other people aren't spelling the word "correctly", since it no longer matches the pronunciation. I've even seen Texans complain about spelling the "get" with an 'e' instead of an 'i'!

So, the real answer is: "'cause you're wrong, you semi-educated hick", but of course, most people are too polite to say that, and the Americans just get all offended if they do, because anything done "The American Way" is by definition correct. *sigh*
