    That's because it IS one of the crazy things you do! lol

    Has anyone ever heard MS pronounce it? There's a funny clip on the web of Linus Torvalds saying "Hello, my name is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce Linux - Linux". Maybe someone can bring a tape recorder to an MS book signing and get the official word.

    ok, I'm going on tv for SQ and I'll probably mention tweleve and that's why I want to know how to pronounce it. I really can't say 12 because that would confuse people if they went to twelve.org, so I'm trying to figure out how the best way is to mention the site to people in my community so they can see how previous arm chair hunts have been solved and introduce them to arm chair treasure hunting with Jason's mini hunt. We're just poor little ole' Cajuns here you know!!! So, can we come to a consensus on how we should pronounce it besides 12? I'm kind of freaking out here!!

    This was subject for a debate between Cthree, Nitefyre and me a couple of weeks ago. Nite and I both say it the same as the number 12 - Cthree has his own interesting version!

    I guess we should have a pronunciation for audio/spoken media though that gives more of a hint as to the different spelling so that people can find our site.

    I will give in, Cthree, and vote for Twel-eve (twell eve).
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off

    Things have come to a pretty pass,
    Our forum is growing flat,
    For Sue likes this and the other
    While Sol goes for this and that.

    Goodness knows what the end will be;
    Oh, we don't know where we're at...
    It looks as if we all will never be one,
    Something must be done.

    Snowqueen says either and Gabi says eyether,
    Lindenmi says neither and Nite says nyther;
    Either, eyether, neether, nyther,
    Let's call the whole thing off!

    Carol likes potato and Benzleasr likes potaeto,
    Spiggan likes tomato and 12pm likes tomaeto;
    Potato, potaeto, tomato, tomaeto!
    Let's call the whole thing off!

    But oh! If we call the whole thing off,
    Then we must part.
    And oh! If we ever part,
    Then that might break my heart!

    So, if Bronte likes pajamas and Net likes pajahmas,
    She'll wear pajamas and give up pajahmas.
    For we know we need each other,
    So we better call the calling off off.
    Let's call the whole thing off!

    Dreamer5 says laughter and Shirley says lawfter,
    Moscow says after and Krodrat says awfter;
    Laughter, lawfter, after, awfter,
    Let's call the whole thing off!

    Jen likes vanilla and Steve likes vanella,
    Cryptic says parilla and Wilho says parella;
    Vanilla, vanella, Chocolate, strawberry!

    So, if Fox goes for oysters and Greenprincess goes for orsters
    Mimi’s deli will cancel both orders,
    For we know we need each other,
    So we better call the calling off off.
    Let’s call the whole thing off.

    So, if Holli calls it tweh-leve and Nite calls it twelve
    Cthree says twee-leave and Backgbob’s family says two-a-leave
    We’ll all be laughing,
    For we know we need each other,
    So we better call the calling off off!
