It’s a funny word if you keep saying it. All words are funny that way. They get weird. Toy boat, toy boat, toy boyt, toe bot …
Obey, obey-ee, oy bey, stands up pretty well, better than toy boyt.
I think the official definition is “sit down and shut up.”
I Googled to see if I could find an O Bay, along some coast, somewhere in the world. I couldn’t find one, but I bet there is one somewhere. When people get there, they say oh boy! O Bay.
