How do you pronounce "Fluther?"?

Asked by Mamradpivo (9665points) February 21st, 2009 from iPhone

I like to think of it as “Floother,” with a soft th sound (like in “tooth.” But I’m pretty sure I’m wrong. How do you say it in your head? And does it even matter?

In fact, I remember asking this same very question.

@fireside it’s a pronunciation using two different dialects. British and American.
