I've been wondering recently whether the exclamation point in "Zo!" is pronounced or not. Is it indicative of a click consonant like in Khoi-San and Bantu languages from sub-Saharan Africa and the Damin language used by some groups of Aboriginal Australians, or is it just something everyone's favorite Eoxian celebrity added to the end of their name for some extra SHMAZAZ in their presentation?

Pretty sure its just extra RAZMATAZ

Yeah, I think it's just meant to add vigor to the name of an uncharacteristically lively undead.

I think that the key is more jazz hands.

If Zo! did more jazz hands he'd drop his microphone! D:

You say that like he can’t quickly wedge it in his rib cage when the need for jazz hands arises.

There's also the legion of thrallsproduction assistants that can hold his microphone for him.

Or that the halfling skeleton he has wedged in his abdominal cavity just for that occasion won't reach out and take the microphone.

Zo! readjusts the buttons over his abdominal cavity and smooths out his shirt. "Hey, I don't talk about your personal lives!" Then he pauses to consider. "Jazz hands and thumbs up are definitely part of the pronunciation scheme. Thanks so much for asking!"


Finger guns?

You got THREE seasons out of that hidden camera.

And a Christmas special.

Don't forget the 'Where Is Wolf Right Now?' segments he used as filler for his other shows.

Little-known fact: due to an obscure quirk of Eoxian, all visible letters of the name are silent and it is actually pronounced "fan-shaw."


Attack of the Zo! One of the best movie titles of all time.
