    •  I always wondered where that came from... (0+ / 0-)

      There was a hilarious Ed Quillen piece a number of years back making fun of all the funny pronunciations in Colorado.  I never knew where anyone came up with "Pee-eh-blow" and never suspected it was just another "be-you-na vista" racist alteration.  (It's the official by law pronunciation in Buena Vista, CO, don't you know...)
