My Dad did this growing up. He would refer to people as “real cool dudes” but he’d pronounce dude “dyood”. When I was a young teen is was cringy as fuck. When I grew up it was hilarious.

Edit - entirely deliberate on his part too

I also call my girls (twins, 5) dudes. I always get, “I’m not a dude!” from them. It just makes me laugh. They’ll occasionally call me “bro” which I think is hilarious. I’ve been trying to get them to say “bruh” instead but I don’t think they quite understand the difference in pronunciation.

I don’t really care about anyone’s opinions of my fashion sense, and I definitely don’t care about the opinions of teenagers. Label me old all you want, kids.
