How to pronounce "Buttigieg"

This ancient Maltese Semitic name refers to someone who raises chickens.

This is how you pronounce it:

  1. BUT = "boot"
  2. TIG = "edge"
  3. IEG = "edge"

So, boot-edge-edge. The more you know!


  • I imagine that being president is like being a chicken farmer: so much clucking, so many mouths to feed. There's room for all in Pete's Hen House!

    I imagined it sounded French to me, but the French don't have Pete's fighting toughness and firm figure. It is definitely exotic and perhaps Pete could be our second non-white president in addition to being our first (?) homosexual president.
