The only one in that list that really bothers me is カリオーキー ^^

Another one that really gets me is サキ.

Ahahahaha.

カリオーキー!!

カラーディー (or カラーティー, depending on whether it's US English or not) is a bit annoying too, no?

A few years ago I had an English teaching gig where the instructors are with the students one-on-one at a desk. And one day I happened to hear the following from a neighboring desk:

American Instructor: "OK, repeat after me: 'On weekends I enjoy kerry-okey.'"
Japanese Student: "On weekend I enjoy kari-oki".
A.I.: "Kerry-Okey"
J.S.: "Kerri-Okkii.."

I had to do everything in my power to restrain myself from leaping over the partition and strangling the idiot.
I shall serve no fries before their time.
