Wasn't it QuoteXCurly? Somebody who never came back after it was released at least.

I just read it as GEAR-A-CHEEZUR (GIRaCHEEZER instead of GIRakaCHEEZER). I know it isn't correct since I am dropping two letters, but it certainly is easier on the tongue, being an easy flowing 4 syllables instead of a disjointed 5 or 6.

Or just call him GIR like the rest of us.

I read it as GER(as in "Germany")-A.K.A-CHEESER. I guess I really does suck at English.

There are multiple different ways to pronounce something in English based solely on how it is spelt. I wouldn't be too concerned about the accuracy of your pronunciation of a made up word.

No one here can demote G I R, he will forever be eternal in this ancient husk of a forum.
Much like how our spirits are locked within it, there's no escape.

uhh so how exactly IS it pronounced? I always read is as grr-A-k-a-cheezer. But apparently everyone says it's "gear."

Also i like how this thread turned into a thread about how to pronounce Gir's name.

Gear is the canonical pronunciation.

"Grr" is the correct pronounciation, but "gear" has been gaining popularity ever since that one video which I can no longer find a link to.

Is the "aka" pronounced letter by letter, or as a word?

Technically lurkers can't vote. Although we can't accept their pseudo-votes anyway, since this matter doesn't affect lurkers.
