I used to say Ass-burgers...cos the man it's named after was austrian...and that i assume is how he'd have said it!!!!!

But then i found people around me kept saying it differently...so i joined the in crowd anmd started saying it differently!!!

Now my friend has been on a training seesion about AS and she was told the ASS-burger pronounciation!!!

So come on (DAVROS!!! )What is the correct way!!!!

Howdy MrsF! Good question - I have heard both prenunciations (?) from professionals, but I tend to say Ass-per-jers.

There was a really awful Ted Danson comedy (if that's not a contradiction!) where the doctor's receptionist found it hysterical that a patient had Ass-Burgers. I usually say Asper-jers.
