puh-leeze

An exaggerated pronunciation and misspelling of "please," used to express exasperation, disdain, or incredulity. A: "She said that you're the one who's responsible for the error." B: "Oh, puh-leeze! If she hadn't screwed up, none of this would have happened!" Puh-leeze—that's the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard!

Puh-leez!

(pəə ˈliiiz)
exclam. Please!; That is enough! You can’t expect me to accept that! (A long, drawn-out way of saying Please! The tone of voice shows exasperation and disgust. The spelling is highly variable.) I am the one who’s at fault? Puuuleeeze!

And, granted, Apple has a lot of tech-savvy geeks working for it, but puhleez don't give the tech-poor excuse when you're running Surveillance Central, with untold "black" budgets for foreign and domestic spying and massive new "data centers," such as the NSA's gargantuan $1.5-plus billion facility recently completed in Utah, that collects and stores billions of telephone calls, e-mails, text messages, and other personal data.
