That, and that's how all of the boys in my school say it when they exclaim, "THAT PWNED"
I would pronounce it pown(pone), but I'ver never said it in real life.

My idea is that is is p + own, like when you say "I owned you in that game" or something of that sort, its just like your adding a P to it...

I pronounce it pone, though more often I'll just say own.

I think of it either as "pawn" or "pone," but now mainly "pone," since someone in my camp told me that was the right way...
