How can Bob Wilson pronounce his name if he doesn't have li_s?

Now I just feel like a geek...I know he is a squirrel person in a beefeater uniform, but if he can't say his P's he can't say his B's or W's either.

I'm just over analyzing aren't I?

I actually asked C. Moore that question when I saw him on his book tour. I can't remember his answer because it was mostly bullshit.

I do remember what he said to the audience about my question.

(At the time, most people hadn't had a chance to read the book yet)

"So everyone knows, the character she is referring to is 18 inches tall and is made of spare squirrel parts, but the problem she has with him is that he can make "b" sounds without lips."

Lots of laughter.

I kinda wondered the same then, but then chalked it up to creative insanity.
