I love how you say “cocoa” and we say “cacao”

This is because, for some reason that is probably explainable but I don't know, the seed of the cacao tree is the cocoa bean.

Interesting. It seems to indicate that in ages past, someone fucked up.

Next time I am in Spain I'm going to make sure I ask where I can find some good caca.
