View Full Version : Ruined for Life; How do I pronounce Phenteo?

I am not sure how many people remember but back just before Set 3 was released there was a thread that involved how to pronounce Phenteo's name.

Ever since that thread I have never been able to take any card seriously that had Phenteo's name on it. This is coming from someone that will ensure they are as far from a spider as possible and retaliate with extreme prejudice if they are required to get close to one.

The recent preview of Fen Toe's Gift instigated me to post this.

A baked Fentato with some sour cream and chives. Sounds delicious.

I don't know how you can possibly pronounce the "teo" part as "toe", linguistically it makes no sense for that e to be silent, so it seems you have to either pronounce it fen-tee-oh or fen-tay-oh unless you're reading it wrong.

Record yourself pronouncing your name and post it to Youtube. That will end the debate.

To be exact, the accent is on the second syllable. It's "Fen TAY Oh."

Spiders have terrible pronunciation, weirdly shaped mouths.

When you're ever confused about how to say his name just remember "Bog Footfingers" A fen is like a bog, and toes are like foot fingers.

Fen-Tay-Oh

Can we all agree to just call him Po-tay-toh from now on? Seems like it would resolve the debate quite effortlessly. :D

Cory is the only one with Veto power, if you can get him to come and veto it, you can go back to Bog Footfingers.

We can probably get Reverter to solve this!
