The example using cello brings back a particular memory. I was listening to an online presentation a few years back (required in order to retain certification). The presenter was fond of giving these presentations (gave many, which also helped him to retain his certification), and was rather impressed with himself. At the end of the presentation that day, he explained to us how he would "sooth his nerves" after work, by listening to Yo-yo Ma play cello. The pronunciation of cello, of course, was butchered completely, exposing his story as most likely being fabricated from something he found online.
