I dunno, I always read "DID I ERR?" as "DID I AIR?"  I
think "ERR" prounounced to sound like "FUR" is more
like that noise you make when you're thinking hard,
such as "ERR...COULD YO RUN THAT BY ME AGAIN?"

In fact, it's a natural for GROO to pronounce it both
ways in one sentence, as in "ERR...DID I ERR?"
