Call me pretentious if you wish, but it bothers me that people continue to embrace a false westernized lexicon of our hobby, which we all love and respect. You can continue to appear clueless, but why would you want to?

I like the word Shisha Better.... Kinda funner to say. My last name was butchered when my family came to America, doesn't surprise me a word like this is.

As for this
