You pronounce "power cuts" as "ups" (like "ups and downs") mako?

You Americans are ke-ray-zee!


I think the idea was that UPS should be pronounced like "oops", because that's what you say when you cut the power.

Yes, I realised that when I posted. Surely if we were to pronounce it at all we'd say "ups" not "oops" given there's already a word spelt the same way that we know how to pronounce.
