What is the correct pronunciation of Roux?  Is the X silent? Or is it pronunced the "'Merican way"  with the X?

What's the correct pronunciation? (Roo like Kangaroo) or something different? I'm guessing it's no ROW-UX

I can hope. I had to look up how to do the umlaut but the way it changes the sound rolling off the tongue and even typed it looks very Germanic and precise. Like a fine watch or a dead nuts serious race car driver.

You know... reminds me of Wicket. You know, the ewok from Return of the Jedi? Little guy is gearing up for speeder bike races.

 

But, for the love of all that is holy, don't name your mascot after a character that is now owned by Disney. They'd sue all of us! =P
