When I saw that paused scene, the refrain of this song popped into my head, except that I had never consciously heard the "I don't", so I thought it was "I do feel like dancing".

That's my character, Cheru M'Achet (Cheru M'Achet = Cheru M Achet = "Voice at the Horizon" in Ancient Egyptian, where "Cheru" is Voice, "M" is "at the" and "Achet" is "Horizon") fighting two Mummy Lords, by the way.

Hmm... Mummy Lords. Sounds like some kind of tooth-rotting sweet, doesn't it?

Nougat Marrow in Crunchy cookie bones, wrapped with a tasty licorice mummy wrapping? I think we're onto something there!

So long as everyone pronounces nougat correctly, I'm happy.

You mean it's not pronounced "nuh-get"?

And unless you read the "Sam&Max sketchbook, you probably won't get my above joke.

I detest that pronunciation. "noo-gar" is so, so much nicer sounding.

Now-gate? No-u-jat? Oo-gar? (When do you get a silent n?)

How can a word ending with a t be pronounced with an r-sound at the end?

That's not an audible "r". I could have written it as "noo-gah" if you'd preferred, but that wouldn't have implied a long vowel in the second syllable.

So yeah. Use the French pronunciation. Much better.

But since your avatar is currently a Zombie, "gah" automatically has a long vowel for you, Tibsie.

Also, I much prefer "Noo-Gah".
