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.
