Put it in the Curry

I can say Deoxyribonucleic without a conscious thought but Cardamom I cannot say without my face screwing up in concentration and spelling it first in my head and then reading the image phonetically. Why should this be?

There is a sketch from the Spike Milligan Q Series featuring some Pakastani Daleks who after blasting the 'good guys' chant 'Put it in the Curry'. I havent seen this but Spikes's 'Put it in the curry' I have heard many times.
The wretched BBC will not release the Q series to DVD because Spike is not PC enough for them. They should all be shot.

I have the same trouble with apothecary. Anyone saying "Put it in the apothecary" might also have to be shot, especially if the apothecary made a fuss.
