If I hadn't already had KFC Poutine while in Canada, this new menu item at Houlihan's would delight me:
"DISCO FRIES: Canadian Poutine (Poot sin) style with melty mozzarella, slow cooked pot roast and gravy."
Poot-sin! I had NO idea. I've been saying it all wrong.
Listen here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media:Pronunciation-of-Poutine.ogg
I had no idea there was a poutine - disco connection.
Well, that's just daft. Where does that 's' come from? Silly French Canadians, what do they know? Poo-teen.

The 's' seems to be there just to be cute. "Poot-zeen."
