The number one question I get when talking about Hafuboti is “does that mean something?” If I’m writing about it, then the first question is “how the blankety-blank do you pronounce that?”
What it means:
Honestly, I don’t care how you say the name as long as you remember it. Personally I say “Haf-uh-bow-tea.” Sometimes I’ve been known to say “Halfa booty,” which makes me giggle. “Half a bow tie” is also acceptable since bow ties are cool.
