How do you pronounce "kibosh"?

I've heard this said both ways.  The "ka" in option 2 is pronounced like "kazoo".

I think it's sort of the second version, but more like ki-BOSH.   I usually pronounce it exaggeratedly, like in the cartoons "KEE-bosh") but I don't put that out as the best official pronunciation.

I have always pronounced it KY-bosh, but I have no idea if that is correct.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I don't think I've heard it pronounced any other way but the first.

I don't pronounce it either way, because it's not a word I have ever used or would ever use. I think I've maybe heard it more often the first way, but it's not a word I've heard often enough to care either way how someone pronounces it.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

I've literally only heard ka-BOSH until reading this thread. Chris Bosh would also be acceptable.

I've heard both. For some reason i like KY-bosh more, but I have no reason for that. I know Al Michaels says ki-BOSH on some of the Sunday Night Football telecasts, but an old boss I had said KY-bosh. I honeslty haven't a clue because I don't really use it much myself.

I'm pretty sure I've never actually said this word.

Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Short of the French pronunciation of the word (since that's the origin), that's the closest approximation.
