I pronounce it 'Sword' but the GB team especially Ryan seem to pronounce it 'Sword' is there an injoke I'm not getting?
How do you pronounce Sword?
I pronounce "sword" as "fasjhgoidashgisaubdugos".
The reason why the Giant Bomb crew pronounces it the way they do is because of The RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. He's always pronounced the W in sword for some reason. If you listen to older episodes of the Bombcast, you'll hear Jeff and Ryan reference the Wu-Tang Clan.
Are. you. serious? Ryan's not that stupid, he already explained, when they were answering to an email on the Bombcast, that he said it that way because it's awesome-r sounding than the correct pronunciation. But it's all jokes. I'm sure (I hope) everyone knows how to pronounce the word correctly, at least in normal speech.
Oh, will you people just stop with this baffling inability to understand that he's just doing it for shits and giggles. Yes, of course he's pronouncing it wrong, but anytime someone tries to explain why he does it, it just drains all the fun out of it.
So please, stop asking why Ryan says "Absofruitly" and "sWord" and "robit" and "interweb" and countless others and just be at ease with it and shut the fuck up.
