Okay, so inherently funny to say then. I just like to feel I'm in on the joke
I will say, I'm in the Midwestern United States. We have a habit around here with place names that is a little weird. We like to take the names of famous cities. Slap the names on small towns in the middle of nowhere, and then mispronounce the name. So...
Miami, Mo pronounced My Hammy, Missouri.
Versailles, Mo pronounced Ver Sales, Missouri.
My personal favorite: Cairo, IL pronounced Kay Row, Illinois.
And somehow Paris, IL pronounced like Paris France. Nobody knows why.
