eajc4f: ReapTheChaos: What's even more unfortunate is when idiots take a foreign word and try to pronounce it as if it's English. That word doesn't sound like you people think it does.

Hey, lots of us here speak Japanese and know how it's "supposed" to be pronounced. It doesn't change how it's spelled in Roman lettering.

It is funny, and may be a marketing coup for this company. I'm not quick to assume this was a total accident; you see plays on language like that all the time in Japan.
