Dubbuya

This actually has nothing to do with Bush. Since before the ex-prez was in the public eye, my dad has insisted that the correct pronunciation of the letter 'w' is 'dubbuya.' Can anyone tell me where he got this idea and how prevalent it is? He's a baby boomer raised in Connecticut, if that helps.
