'segway'

Yuh. That's what I thought.

But why do some people say "seg" instead?

What *is* that?

I might have heard something like 'sayg'... people should learn their pronounciations! (look who's talking)

I think the Czechs pronounce it "sej-oo."

Wiseass.

Truly, I got all confused. I felt like I'd been walking around with my underpants showing when I realized I'd been pronouncing it "seg" for years.

And aren't those weird two-wheeled people-movers called segways?
