Popular mispelling of the name "Nietzsche," possibly the most frequented misspelled and mispronounced German name, not counting "Goethe." The correct pronunciation is "NEE-tcha," not "NEE-chee."
Found occasionally in college bathroom stalls in the following sequence:

God is Dead. --Nieztche
Nieztche is dead. --God

The cleverest addition to this exchange is the following:

Nieztche is actually spelled Nietzsche. --Kaufmann

(Walter Kaufmann was a prominent Nietzsche scholar and translator)
