SNK3R...is it sinker? sneaker? snaker? sonecar?
We were discussing this in chat...how exactly is this supposed to be pronounced?
March 9 2006 8:31 AM EST
Ok.. i always thought it was to be pronounced as Snaker as in
I also heard Sonekar....

I'm with Sinker. It doesn't sound right in my head any other way. Of course that's not much that's right that goes on inside my head, but that's another matter entirely.
SiNKer is the obvious choice, but those in the know insist that it's SNeeKer. SNicKer has also been suggested. With the bad 'e' in all cases.

I always thought it was Sneaker, like the sport shoes... it has to be that way! ;p
Ess-En-Kay-Er for me. :)
As in the SNK fighting games. :)
GL beat me to it.
/me shakes fist at GL
Cheap rip offs of the Streetfighter Series they were anyway! ;) :P
i just looked at it and thought it was sneaker, so i say sneaker everytime i see it...lol.

"Hello, this is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce 'SNK3R' as 'Snee-ker'".
(Blatant rip-off of this.)

Nice pic of S-N-K-3-R. Chappy has photos of all of us. He's either a foreign spy or agent for home land security.
And yeah, I've always just spelled out the whole thing, including the '3' and the 'R'.
Sometimes my mind speaks it as Ess-En-Kay-Three-Ah! ;)
Lol...i always thought it was pronounced as Sneaker too. I've thought that since CB1...lol but perhaps i've been wrong all this time... ^_^

I spell SNK3R as S N K 3 R.
Sneaker and Snicker were the favourite CB1 nicknames.
I have always said Snaker because I found it easiest to say but lately have been thinking it should actually be Ess En Kay er.
Ess and er are not in the dictionary but En and Kay are, another interesting post :).

Sinker. I had this exact same discussion with a guy from another game whose name was SNKR.
March 9 2006 7:42 PM EST
Sneaker or S N K 3 R
Unless he is a pirate in which case it would be:
S N K 3 Arrrrgh!

Pronunciation, bart, not spelling, you silly man!
yeah, for me it is
Snicker, like the candy bar
March 9 2006 10:28 PM EST
i pronounce it letter for letter...S-N-K-three-ARGH!
March 10 2006 12:44 AM EST
As long as my PC doesn't do voice recognition, I have to type it, right?
Come on SNK3R! Put us out of our misery! ;) How is it supposed to be pronounced?
Nah, he'd rather watch us squirm...you know he's read it by now! lol
What if i beg, SNK?
/me gets down on her knees...
(on a side not, doesn't the word knees look funny to you? what a strange word...)

Thanks for those words from our sponsor. You're listening to 1049 CB2 on fm and digital. Ok we're interrupting this chat with a blast from the past.
'How do you say delicious?
How do you say de-lovely?
How do you say delectable?
How do you say divine?
How do you say de-groovy?
How do you say Deee-Lite?
We've been trying to find out
Is there really such a thing?'
Sorry all this talk made me remember an old tune by Deee-Lite. Wow!- flashback to the early 90s.....where's my glowstick?
Staying on track though - I never wondered how to pronounce SNK3R. He's just that dude with the funny name. Ok, funnier than most.... ;)

Sinker, you liar!
March 10 2006 6:24 PM EST
*sighs* the conclusion is that it cannot be pronounced, only typed. So if you ever talk to SNK on the phone, use a keyboard. He'll recognize the keystrokes by the sound given off from your fingers tapping.
Hurray, bart wins! He's the weiner!

So, lets take a moment of Silence to the unpronouncable name
S N K 3 R
On a side note, is Edyit, pronounced Idiot? cause that's what I do....
March 11 2006 1:09 PM EST
i just use the phoenetic spelling of Ed-E-It
March 11 2006 1:50 PM EST
lukey was close its a play on words ed + idiot = edyit (ediot) :-)
