    Mr Mxyzptlk

    it's certainly the 2nd most annoying name i've come across on a forum. i've got no idea how to pronounce it and it's impossible to remember how to spell imo.

    your thoughts?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    What do you need to pronounce it for? Do you talk to your computer, nibbs?

    No, he's got one of those text-to-speech programs, and he's sick of it crashing every time he wants to catch up at CW.

    I'd say "Liam" is pronounced as "Lee-um".

    But I've always gone for "Mix-us-pit-lick" for "Mxyzptlk".

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
