I came across this site searching for an internet meme of Batman slapping Robin for mispronouncing Greek letter pi. You see, March 14th is coming up and that's considered "Pi Day" (3-14... get it?). And I thought the classic meme of Batman slapping Robin would be a funny way to let everyone know "pi" is actually pronounced "pee".

The search led me to this site and to a good question about why Greek letters are mispronounced. Next thing I knew I was typing this long, yet poignant, response about how most Americans go out of their way to pronounce Spanish and French words, yet, mispronounce Greek words and letters. I even indicated that modern-Greeks are partially to blame for it.
