West-Coasters Try To Pronounce Maine Places And It’s Hilarious

If I had a dollar for every time I told someone I live in Maine and heard them say, “Oh! That’s where Stephen King lives, right? In Bang-er” in response, I would be a very rich Mainer. Our Native American past means that we’ve got some of the best places names anywhere! From Passamaquoddy to Mooselookmeguntic to the should-be-simple, Saco – it’s no wonder people from away are constantly getting lost. Because we always think it’s funny when people try to pronounce our more complicated place names, I thought you’d enjoy this video I recently came across. Here are a few west-coasters trying to pronounce a few spots in Maine.

Place names aren’t the only thing west-coasters have trouble with. For another laugh, check out this video of a few trying some Maine foods.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
