If You Can Pronounce These 8 Words, You’ve Lived In Milwaukee For Far Too Long
In the Midwest, we use some strange language. Milwaukeeans are sometimes even worse, though none of us will admit that we even have an accent. Some of our words are odd and others have just been overtaken by Milwaukee accents. If you’ve lived here for a while, we’re sure you’ve picked up some new words, but are you pronouncing them in a true Milwaukee fashion?
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
