Are You Secretly Spanish?

I got a kick out of this, and not just because my wife occasionally is secretly Spanish, which is when you're a European caucasian going back many generations and yet you insist on overpronouncing Spanish words in a Latin American accent. Steve of the Llama Butchers, who provided the link, says half of his fellow faculty members do it, and certainly all TV news honkies do it religiously.

I accept the Secretly Spanish under one condition: they have to pronounce everything that way, not just Spanish words. Then it makes perfect sense.
