John Boehner to Journalist: 'It's Boner'

John Boehner Clarifies: 'It's 'Boner' (The Wire)

Reporter Luca Gattoni-Celli, prompted for a question by Boehner, inadvertently called the Speaker "Mr. Camp," a reference to Rep. Dave Camp — who is the talk of Washington for his new, doomed tax proposal. Boehner clarified, presumably joking about how his name is actually pronounced.

Which, when Boehner first came to power, was an issue of some speculation. In 2006, Slate did an "explainer" on it. Even the weird, sometimes joking Pronunciation Book YouTube account explained how to say the name.
