I might include the 'Pleasant and Delightful' parody in my repertoire, but it contains the word Pisces. I have heard three pronunciations, and don't know which to use. If YOU use it, which?

Pie-seas. Piss-keys. Piss-ease. (Any others?)
Heard all three on TV over the years.
Thanks.

Thanks, Ed. That's sorted how Americans say it, anyway. And since the parody is American, so be it.
If you try the words from pisces down, you start to get the 'piss...' pronunciations coming in.

Good dictionary. Bookmarked it.

Those at a place where I once spent some time pronounced it "the evil ones" but I think it had something to do with a specific couple of them who worked there.
