Herbs is not pronounced "erbs". It's pronounced "herbs".

Do you also call Hersheys "ersheys"? Do you call your Uncle Herb "Uncle Erb"?

I dislike the h sound and refuse to use it. Plus, I appreciate the use of brevity wherever it can be fit in.

it's a UK Cockney thing to "refuse" to pronounce the H in most words

they'll even say:
we went to (h)ospital

Re: What's up with this weird-ass garble of calling herbs "erbs"?
in english pronunciation, certain consonants are sometimes silent.

a leading 'h' is sometimes silent.

honesty
honor
hour
heir

and...

herbs.

if you're going to break the rule by adding a ha-sound,
then be sure to break it for all the silent-h words.

otherwise you're just being arbitrary..

when we toke on a doobie we don’t exhale. Yeah bra, we say ‘pass the ‘ersheys’. We get passed the car keys, then drive to the gas station for munchies, then remember ’ersheys and drive home and forget house keys. who’s keys. We all shout for ersheys.
