pronunciation of Haskell applicative operators.

I gave a talk on parsers in Haskell yesterday, and asked the audience how they thought I should pronounce some operators.

They came up with:

<* left looking sparrow
*> right looking sparrow
<*> goatse

If you don't know whatis goatse, you don't want to know. Really. But it made me laugh.
