comment Is Missouri called /mi.'zuɹ.ə/ outside of Missouri?
I've spent time in Illinois, Arkansas and Georgia. In all those places it's /miz.'uɹ.ē/. For precisely the same reason that it's \ˌmi-sə-ˈsi-pē\. or \mī-ˈa-mē\

comment Come on, don’t be such a nimrod!
I agree with MετάEd: I suspect common usage came with Bugs Bunny. Plus, it sounds a little like "numbskull" or the like. Where I'm from it's also common to call someone a "dilrod", which is morphed a step further. IMHO the 1933 citation is in the hunter sense: He's a "hunter" of women, and won't leave this one alone..."
