Bi-opics

DrKenDrKen Chicago
Is this an inside joke that I as just not in on?  I've never heard anyone pronounce it a "bi-opic" as opposed to a "bio-pic" as in "Biography-picture".

I just find it weird that both Jim and ARon are doing it.  I live in the Midwest.  I don't think it is that.  

I'm going with inside-Bald Move joke.

  • Isn’t it “bi-optic” since you have 2 eyeballs watching the bio-pic?

    I'd like to see a Lee Majors bi-opic focusing on The Bio-nic Man.

    Yeah, it is one of those things I heard Aron pronounce and I was like...what? It is like biography except with "pic."

    I thought it was just an ARon thing also for a while but Jim is doing it now too.

    I don't know what the hell is going on.  They're all up in my head, man.  I'm messed up!!
  • Could the Bald Move community go forth and spread the mispronunciation and change it globally??

    ARon must have corrupted Jim's pronunciation sub-routine. He just needs to unplug Jim for 10 seconds then plug him back in.

    Yeah, let's Mandela Effect the shit out of it!
  • It was the Silence of the Lambs Podcast that made me learn to stop worrying and love the mispronunciation. You know The Silence of The Lambs directed by Johnathon "Dem" .
  • Dont be so biopic.  :/

  • Wow, I swear I've heard it pronounced bi-opic many times from many sources.  I believe Merriam but that Webster guy is a real schmuck.

    I just asked my wife if she'd ever heard of a movie biography term.  She had not.  I didn't want to say it out loud so I spelled it out for her and she said "you mean a bi-opic?"

    So, nevermind.

    This is really throwing me for a loop.

    Is it cause of the word myopic? Is that why someone would want to pronounce it bi-opic?

    I'd say it's more because of the prefix bi-. You see bi-, then you pronounce the rest of the word as you would if it were standing alone 
  • MurderbearMurderbear Cold Spring, Ky
    Maybe that's the problem. The prefix is bio

  • I've always said bi-opic and it sounds weird otherwise. Are people saying bi-oh-graphy?

  • MurderbearMurderbear Cold Spring, Ky
    Bi-oh-pic. Bi-ah-graphy. For me at least
  • JaimieTJaimieT Atlanta, GA

    They do say biographical. Bioidentical. Biosphere. Bioshock. ... oh sorry, been watching a Let's Play.

    Well, shit, I did not think this through fully. Probably why I say bi-opic.
  • TaraC73TaraC73 Manchester NH
    I say biopic also... 

    because when you shorten biography you say bio and bio and pronounce it that way (I recently read a great bio of Martin Luther King jr)

  • I say Bi-opic.  I'm British.  I've lived in America for over a decade.  I don't even know any more.

    Mark Kermode says bio-pic and I cut my teeth on movies with him.

    Me too, but I think it is great the way our podcasters say it.

    I would like to see a documentary about really shitty biopics, and why in the stupid bloody dead deer hell they get made. The title: "Ohmyopic"

    Also, we need more auto-biopics. Are their any? If not, Trump will be the first. "Trump on Trump"

    It might be the first to have a zero turnout.

    You severely underestimate the power of GOP grade heroin.
