Mum leaves people in hysterics over the way she pronounces the word ‘mangetout’

If you’ve found yourself in need of a good laugh today, this might just do the trick.

A photo of a bag of mangetout from Tesco has been doing the rounds on social media, accompanied by a hilarious post explaining how one mum has been mispronouncing the name of the vegetable without even realising it.

The name is of course French and translates to mean ‘eat it all’ as the pea has an edible pod, meaning you can eat the whole thing.

The image has recently made its way onto the Facebook group, Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, where it was shared by Grant Knight Ravenhill.

A caption reads: “My mom called these ‘man get out’ and I’ve been crying ever since.”

More than 15,000 people liked the post, with more than 1,000 people commenting.

One person said: “Quite possibly the funniest thing eva love it.”

Another wrote: “This has brightened up my day.”

“I love this just the sort of thing my mum would say,” proclaimed a third.

Someone else replied: “I’m never going to be able to unsee this.”

A different user admitted: “I’ve giggled all day at this!!”

“This is now their official name,” added a sixth.

This comes after we discovered we’d been pronouncing Nice biscuits incorrectly for years.

If you’ve been pronouncing it ‘nice’ as in ‘those flowers look nice’, then I’m afraid to say, you’ve also been saying it wrong.

It turns out the biscuits are actually meant to be pronounced ‘niece’, like the city in France.

This information was shared on Twitter by biscuit experts after Bruno Bouchet ranked his absolute favourite sweet treats.

The ranking featured Nice biscuits, with a debate swiftly erupting over what they are called.

Australian biscuit manufacturer, Arnott’s stepped in to settle the argument once and for all, writing: “Nice biscuits were named after the city in the South of France and pronounced the same as that city. They have been part of the Arnott’s range since 1922.”
