Where we live, a lot of people seem unable to pronounce Thursday properly. It sounds more like Fursday. Or Phursday. It's an example of the Estuary dialect. It is a very interesting phenomenon. Especially for someone who has learnt English as a second language. Proper English, mind. Sometimes I haven't got a clue what people are talking about because of this silly dialect. 'fankew', for example, can you guess what that means? ;-)
