Is mySQL pronounced - "My S Q L" or is it pronounced My Sequel?

I'd always assumed it was the latter because of calling SQL statements "Sequel Statements". But my co-worker was talking to his "geek" friend this weekend who lectured him about "pronoucing it the right way".

That last thing I want is to be one of "those guys" that calls a GIF file something that sounds like a brand of peanut butter.
