A Texas radio station decided to have some fun and asked several of its listeners to come in and try something really hard: Figure out how to pronounce the names of cities in Michigan.
Even people in Michigan have times saying these at times. Of course, we all know it’s not “Mechanic Island,” but Ypsilanti and Sault St. Marie really threw them a curve. And, yes, Gratiot is pronounced, “Gra-Shit.”
The guy in the blue shirt seems to think he’s got it all figured out. Not.
If you live in Michigan, hearing other people struggle with these will be a good chuckle today.
