Urm. Wise???? ME? Cripes. All that chocolate is making you halucinate and warp your brain.

I`m sure i`ve answered this a good dozen times onhere before, but as i can`t be bothered to search for a link, it`s pronounced kind of as a gutteral "gech-lee" type sound.

Quoting Gelli

Did you know that Gelli is pronouced "Jelly"??? (A little bird in Montreal, who has met him, pronounced it that way... I could be wrong... But jelly the gargoyle just doesn't quite gel...

Sorry Isa, hate to dissapoint you, but despite the fact that everybody promounces Gelli as "Jelly", thats completely wrong. :(
Somebody has a dodgy source of information, or more likley guessing who it would be despite the little bird description, got it from somebody with a beer addled memory

Gelli the Gargoyle! Has a lovely alliterative ring to it.

Scarily, your waaaaay closer than you could possible realise (or understand)

Well, I'm terribly sorry for the mispronunciation!!! I am placing the blame on Overlord Sam because that is how he pronounced it (in person). Thank you for the correction!! I'm afraid I haven't seen your prior posts or I woud have known better. ;)

Now, with knowing that and the scarily close resemblence to your true persona... I think Gelli the Gargoyle has a nice ring to it. Rather rolls off the tongue and the gargoyle is nodding in approval too.
