We commoners call it a relish tray or just veggie snacks, but the proper term for it is pronounced just like the title above. I'd heard the word, I knew what it meant, but I'd never seen it spelled out before.

I now take great pleasure in pronouncing it phonetically.

Sounds like it should be a group of undead enemies in a Sam Raimi film.

I actually asked the owner of a fancy-schmancy take-out place what cruddites were. Hey, I call the other French things that are passed around before a meal "hoovers doovers".

Wouldn't that make a great name for a biker gang?

We've always had the crudite at our company christmas parties and I've always delighted in saying phonetically just so my wife can sigh heavily and correct me.

I was at an irish bar a few years ago, sitting down with a bunch of people to grab a bite to eat.

Looking at the menu in utter confusion I asked the assembled crowd (complete with hot irish barmaid)

"What the hell is a cruddite omlet? I mean really? Who would eat something called 'cruddite'?"

Hilarity ensued.
