Conversation at work, where a colleague was handing out samples of soap she collected from a recent conference:

Colleague 1 *excitedly*: "This is vegan soap... It's VEGAN SOAP!" (pronouncing it "vejan" both times)

Colleague 2: "Vegan soap? Is that even the right term?"

Colleague 3: "Yeah... wouldn't you call it 'made from natural ingredients' or something like that? I think vegan has more to do with diet."

Colleague 2: "And I believe it's pronounced 've-gan' with a hard g, not a j."

Colleague 4 *sarcastically*: "Who knows? Those Vegans, you know how they love to confuse matters."

Colleague 1: "I thought those were Anarchists."
