FWIK "Doge" comes from an old HomeStar Runner toon, and is pronounced the same as "dog"

It's like saying Dojo except leave off the last O sound.

At least the Serenissima kind of Doge... not the "so Italy wow such riches" type doge.

So I'm the only one who has not heard of this meme?

I didn't know until I saw that "Internet Commenter's Board Meeting" video that LOL Cat was pronounced "LOL" (like "Laa-L")

I just always assumed it was spelled out L-O-L

/I'm ashamed of myself for putting this much thought into it and for typing all this out

I'm with the one guy in the article. I say it rhyming with vogue because it sounds funniest.

Can I get a gondola ride there from a bubbly, slightly clumsy pink-haired girl who keeps saying "ehh" and "hahi?"

And yes, I'm not serious.

I think that one is region- dependent. Like, folks from Michigan and Wisconsin pronounce "Doll" as "dahl" Northern Ohio, too. My mother said "dahl." And the word "dull" was "dawl," or  which is how I pronounce "doll" and "LOL."

Nope, because I haven't heard of it either... then again, I'm usually reading about other stuff, like news that's actually important.. plus lots and lots about history, language, science, religion, politics, computing, etc, etc, etc..

/what do you call someone who studies as a hobby?
//'cause I'm one of them
