Subject: RE: BS: Stupidest Question Asked!
A couple driving through eastern Maine were argueing about the proper pronunciation of the name of the next town. We natives pronounce it CALLIS and the husband was a native. However, his wife was an outsider, and she insisted it was pronounced CALLAY spelled CALAIS so, he got a little pissed, drove into the parking lot of a business, took her by the hand, walked into this place, approached the counter, addressed a little clerk and said "Slowly and clearly, so my wife can understand, Where are we?" answer from clerk "Dunkin Donut."
