I believe it is a French influence that causes the pronunciation to be "cork". It's mainly that way near Canada and in Louisiana. You hear people from those areas pronouncing it that way when they buy "caulk" (Alex plus type caulk that is) too. And cork guns. And some areas of Virginia oddly enough.
