Try saying this out loud:

"Harry pocketed it".

I've tried saying it at normal speed like 20 times and it doesn't come out correctly. I can only say it properly if I slow it right down.

I got this from Stephen Fry:

My friend can say it fine so I was wondering if this was one of those things that splits the population...
