Somehow made it through "cap forever" with only mild internal chuckles, and wasn't even tempted to post a "labiodental" joke, but "ipfapfunami" nearly killed me.

That's how I pronounce it, though, of course, without the silent H--just as it's spelled.

Edit: who am I kidding, I *always* want to post a "labiodental" joke.

The first time I saw Leela telling me they are called 'Pfhors' I thought it was pronounced 'Puh-vore.' But then when I saw all the map names on their ship ("Pfhor your eyes only," "No time pfhor this," "Two times two equals...") I slowly realized it was pronounced 'Four.'

But the real mystery is how the Pfhor race themselves can even pronounce or write their own species name, when, in the game, you can tell that their form of vocalization is totally different from a human, with their hilarious sounds (one of which sounds like a rubber tire screeching). And that, being completely alienated from the human race, let alone speciffically english language groups, how do they come up with an english spelling of the word? Did durandal/Leela make up this spelling? How the heck are Durandal and the S'pht communicating with each other? With binary?

Ok, I'm gonna go witih Slave, I think . . .

(slight)puh(slight)-f-hor(sligh accent here - like whore)

Most similar to 'four' though, probably kind of a pfour, cuase I belive it has to fit the puns, but needs to be DIFFERENT.

Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Let's argue about how many people got the joke. That'll make the thread longer and more pointless.

I say there are more people who got the joke than posted indicating they got it!
