Tricky Pronunciation

While driving through Natchitoches, Louisiana a husband and wife were arguing about the pronunciation of the town. Before leaving they decided to stop for lunch.

At the counter, the husband asked the cashier, “Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are very slowly?”

The girl leaned over the counter and said, “Burrr-gerrr Kiiing.”

(FYI, while there are acceptable variations, Natchitoches is typically pronounced, Nah’-cuh-dish.)
