Whilst not initially going to post this here, with the ESGN Hearthstone tournament featuring Team Doge House currently being shown.. "live" *Cough*, with people like Frodan seeming unsure of themselves when saying the word "Doge", I have made the case to myself that it is indeed on-Hearthstone-topic. Or whatever. Shutup!
Such investigate, very interest, much thorough, bread
Is it "Dough-je", or "Dogg-ee"? Both have been used thoroughly throughout internet landz, bringing about as much confrontation as the historic Battle of Verdun, which if memory serves correctly, involved a literal arm-wrestling match between Napoleon and Hitler in a best of 5, the ultimate winner of the matchup clearly being George Patton, who was voted winner based on his savvy dress-sense whilst cheer-leading the match. But I digress, you can read more up on WWI history on Wikipedia! Time to get back on topic, bro.
After much to-and-fro, unsure of whether to believe the original mention of "doge" on a Homestar Runner Puppet sketch in which it was pronounced "Dough-je", or to believe the back-of-mind thought that "Dogg-ee", I decided the only sensible course of action was to draft in an expert on the subject. My mother's doge, Coochie, a Maltese demon-child fed on a combination of pure hate, angst, and chicken. Thus, after grabbing out my potato to film her, the question was posed: What is the correct pronunciation of "Doge?"
Well, as you can probably tell from the video above, a) Sutty was wearing short-shorts whilst filming b) It was filmed in bad light and c) The doge certainly seemed... weary whilst answering. Hmm, the response only brought about more questions. What could Coochie be hiding behind that white, furry coat covered brain? Secrets to life? The knowledge of bark-language? The location of that missing pair of white socks, of which she was a prime suspect in the disappearance? Avoiding eye-contact, for instance, is a classic move by those nervous at the line of questioning. Thus, I was not convinced.
Being an investigation, I did not stop so easily. Thus, after a quick break, filming recommenced, and the question was posed again:
Well, there we have it. I find myself no closer to solving the long-asked riddle of the "Doge" pronunciation. Perhaps I should give up? Though, more likely, I will instead continue this investigation full-time, because life's question deserve an answer!
I put it to everyone else now: Do you believe "Dough-je" or "Dogg-ee" is correct? Or is it truly just a mystery?!? Or whatever.
