I pronounce it like
beaut. Is that wrong?

The way I say it, it rhymes with mute!

I say those with the same sound. Does anyone modify one or the other?

The "e" is silent and in my Aussie lingo, Butte and beaut are perfect homonyms (like to, two and too), and mute is a perfect rhyme, so it sounds like we're all on the same page, except for you Geoff, or was there a subtle joke there I didn't get?

So glad we agree on the pronunciation because that's how my friend in Montana pronounces it, and I'd hate to think she pronounces her own city wrong.
Now to come up with one...

Hey, cut that out! That's MY kind of crazy stuff! Get better, please! The limericks can wait.
PS: Why is it that when we throw our back out we see a doctor, but when we throw our front out we see a judge?

I am sorry to hear that, Bethree. If you want any help in posting these, just let me know.
I've always thought the phrase to "throw one's back out" was a bit odd. Of course, as a literalist, my vision is taking one's back in his/her hands and giving it a toss. Ouch!
