I Will Sacrifice Proper Movie Theater Etiquette for the Sake of Winning an Argument. You've Been Warned.
By Awkwardly Alive on January 18, 2013
Last night at the movies:
Dragon: Can I get two for The Django, please?
Me: Did you just say “The Django”?
Dragon: Heh.. no…
Me: I think you did. You just called it “The Django”. It’s just “Django”.
Dragon: No, it’s “D-Jango!” There’s a “D” at the front!
Me: Yeah, that “D” is silent. You don’t say it. I’ve never heard it said “D-Jango” – even when Jaime Foxx was on SNL, I just heard it pronounced “Jango”. No “D”.
Dragon: He probably just said it quickly.
Me: …yeah, him and the rest of the world apparently…
And now a quick snippit from the film – sorry for the slight spoiler (not really):
Some Southern Dude: What’s your name, boy?
That Same Southern Dude: How do you spell that?
Django: D-J-A-N-G-O… The “D” is silent.
Me (in the theater): HA! I WIN!
