Wait, How Do You Spell It in a Fake British Accent, Again?

Middle-aged guy #1 looking at menu: Hey, man, they spelled ‘Caesar’ wrong.
Middle-aged guy #2: What do you mean?
Middle-aged guy #1: They spelled it C‑A-E-S-A‑R instead of C‑E-A-S-A‑R. They switched the ‘A’ and ‘E.‘
Middle-aged guy #2: Yeah, I’ve seen it spelled that way before. It’s, like, the authentic Roman spelling.
Middle-aged guy #1: Oh, yeah, they were always doing crazy shit… Like backward V’s and stuff.
