Soooo, "Pampel moose" is not the right way to say this word then? You're going to have to be my Professor Higgins.

Wait..... does that mean chocolate mousse is not pronounced as "moose"?

Yes, moose is right and mousse is pronounced like moose. It's all good. But of course in French you have to say it backwards because that's the French way.

Mousse au Chocolat.

Say: Moose o'shockoLATT

Which looks Irish but whatever, I have my own way to show pronunciation, screw the dictionaries!
