No chocobo controversy, please
First off, a quick clarification. Yesterday, I said that Final Fantasy Pray had "a female vocalist," yet I failed to mention her name. The very talented lady is named Risa Ohki. As always, send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: I read in the Square FAQ on "how to pronounce Chocobo". I
would like to learn the source for this information.
AK: This is a good question, one I actually had to research, much
to my dismay. According to Japanese scholars, the katakana for chocobo in
the Japanese games is "chi(yo)-ko-bo", with the "yo" being a "small yo".
A "small yo" with a "chi" produces a "choh" sound, as in bow tie. That leaves us
with the pronunciation of "CHOH ko bo".
Q: Why is forty two the ultimate answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything? Why not forty seven? Or 56???
AK: Because 42. Duh.
Q: What makes Andrew Kaufmann cry?
AK: Melted slurpees and missed layups.
