It’s bad enough when you hear Michiganders mispronouncing our Michigan towns & cities like Okemos (Oh-Kee-MOCE) or Charlotte (SHAR-lutt)…..but then you realize that’s NOTHING compared to how out-of-staters pronounce our fair cities.

We’ve all had relatives from other states completely destroy the name of our cities but it’s always fun to watch strangers completely screw ’em up, too.

Example: Here is a video of Texans attempting to pronounce a nice handful of our cities, with maybe a couple getting one right. Watch how these Texans mangle our cities!
