Now you're just being silly.
Obviously you can't pronounce every crazy mixture of consonancts, but I think the OPs question is valid and interesting.
I hear people talking about "ess-ay-ess software" (vs "sass") or using the "jay-em-pee product" (vs "jump"). Knowing how most people pronounce a string of characters is important, even if there is variation.
You say dah-ta, I say day-ta...
