"Wooster" is the correct pronunciation for the city in Massachusetts, but
not the sauce, that is pronounced "wooster-sheer"

Funny, my experience is that many people that say "nucular" don't hear the
difference. I had an engineer working for me a long time ago that did this.
He would protest, saying he got it right: "That's what I said : nucular."
Not good in a nuclear utility environment.
