Authorities in Massachusetts, honored homeland of myself, have discovered that some identifying signs have spelled - I'm not making this up - Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg incorrectly. Apparently, there is an "o" at letter 20 where a "u" should be, and an "h" at letter 38 where an "n" should go. Though the heavens fall.
This is the You Fish on Your Side, and I'll Fish on Mine, and Nobody Fish in the Middle lake in Webster. Apparently that's not true, as most translations of Indian languages are not true. Since we had to memorize this at either camp or something, I cannot recall, and because my Uncle Russ seemingly could always pronounce it correctly, and because it's such an absurd thing to even slowly pronounce, I think it a cruel joke by the Mohicans or whoever was there back in the day to watch white men contort their faces as if they had a mouthful of alum.
No offense, but that's gotta be covered by Geneva.
