I see it in my minds eye as Berenstein, what makes it interesting is how many other people say the same thing. Even if you think this is all poppeycock, you have to admit that it's pretty strange that so many people swear it was Berenstein. If it is so common for people to mix up letters like this, is there any other examples out there that have been as well known as this particular name? And why not?
Our backgrounds were different – Jewish and Protestant. But we thought of ourselves as, simply, American and, primarily, as artists.
Comparing notes further, there was something more significant we had in common – our American childhoods.

You mean "Stein"?
That's a "mispronunciation" not a "simile".
A simile is when you compare two things that have nothing to do with one another to add dramatic effect.
