On a recent rerun of 2 Broke Girls, there was a bit about the way to pronounce "coupon." I'm of the kyu-pon persuasion, but I'd be interested to know about the ku-pon/kyu-pon pronunciation. Which do you say? Where are you from, and what's your generation, if you're willing to tell?

And while I'm at it. I have always said "I'm bored with this discussion," but notice that my children say they're "bored of" things. What would you say, and what's your context?
