I am probably as close to an expert on Cthulhu as you can get, having founded a large chunk of my "career" on 1920's pulp author H.P. Lovecraft's coat tails, as well as forming a rock band that is in large part a Lovecraft homage (including a song called "Jimmy the Squid" which I should probably convert to mp3 for you guys).

kuh-TOOL-oo
or kuh-THOOL-oo

are the most common pronunciations, but it's all beside the point as the word "Cthulhu" is only an approximation of a name that is unpronouncable by human tongues. So pronouncing it "puh-NELL-uh-PEE" is just as correct.

I think our next band shirt is going to be an anatomical diagram of some kind of squid (if I can find a good one that is suitable for silk-screening - I'm guessing there aren't any of mesonychoteuthis).

:cthulhu:

Sorry to add to the digression...
(or am I?) ;)

Take a look at the science articles. Just hit the Science button up top and scroll down. Kat and Steve gave us an article on giant and colossal squid, complete with scary pictures. :squidaut:
