Something that nobody on urban dictionary realizes exists. As can be easily seen through the pronunciation of words like wordcool. Note that multiple pronunciations have multiple hypens, and a hyphen denotes a syllabic break, when cool is only one syllable and needs no hyphenation.
Cool is a one syllable word, but apparantly is pronounced K-ew-l, which is 3 syllables.
Slut is also one syllable, but according to some jackass, it is pronounced S-Lut.
