For some odd reason, Byron McGee thinks that the word "quaff" should be pronounced "quaff" rather than "quaff". We do, however, agree, that if we could agree on a pronunciation of the word "quay", we would be no farther in determining the pronunciation of "quaff".
Despite these difficulties, we have a possible solution. Nate will "quaff" a bottle of vodka and attempt to pronounce the word mid-swallow. However he pronounces it is the official pronunciation.
Unfortunately, before he was able to quaff the esteemed beverage, Nate was sidetracked; he was curious to find out the Lift-to-Velocity Ratio of an European Swallow laden with a coconut. He rode off in a trail of dust (which is odd, because most people ride off on a horse), leaving Ryan, confused and unsure what to do next.
So he took Nate's vodka and drank it for himself, concluding that the word is pronounced just as it's written, "quaff." Crazy mick.
