As it's probably derived from Molly (a familiar name for Mary, apparently), then it's obviously just pronounced like Molly, without the "y".

So I suppose a gangster's mole would be a member of a criminal gang who fed them inside information on the police...

....or a small blind furry animal that was the pet of a mafia boss...

....or a small darkly-pigmented area of skin on said mafioso....


And.... have we been invited to vote in a poll or a pole? I think we should be told.

Is it scone or scone?

Tomato or tomato?

Linux or Linux?

Oh no. We've done that one already.

Odd thing about poll, is that for voting I say poll, while for chopping the head off a tree, I pronounce it poll - so there.

Shouldn't make offers like that SC, the sponging git would probably accept it.

Probably pronounced with a NY/Brooklyn twist --- as in coorfee for coffe, or cooyb for curb. For example 'It's cooytens for you now Louies'

Ballmer could also be becoming a modern way of pronouncing Troll as well.
