That's a first

Last evening, for the first time ever, I had occasion to speak out loud the name of the A-list blog "boingboing".

And I realized that I'm not sure how it's pronounced.

Is it BOH-ing BOH-ing? or BOY-ng BOY-ng? or something else?

Maybe it's pronounced that same as the name of the artist formally known as Prince.

Boy ng!

It rhymes with the first syllable in the late great artrock group Oingo Boingo. Danny Elfman, who now does a lot of soundtracks -- especially for Tim Burton -- was a member of the group.
