This is so funny...
there are other similar funny pronunciations by Bengalees; well-read and prefer that the entire world around them to know that they are educated. What they don't realise is that the accent they put on wards (words) can cause the entire meaning to become hilarious.....
Eg: Do you want 'cards' with your dinner- can lead a person to become perplexed and wonder why he should have paper along with his food. Taken into consideration that a Bong is speaking, cards=curds, an altogether swallowable and digestable substance - a whole bunch of malapropisms...
hahahah....
