    If you say coo-pon it is my opinion that you should be firmly struck in the head with a shovel (unless you have generous mammaries). :fil:

    It's a French word, and the French say it coo.

    And my belief is that most French people should be struck in their heads with shovels as well. :fil:

    Both are correct, but the first pronunciation in the dictionary is preferred and that's "coo" :grad:

    But I'm pretty sure I say "cue". :howdy:

    My mom just started pronouncing it like that. I'm asked her if she thinks she's Madonna all of a sudden.
