it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
You’re all going to jail.
"… if you mispronounce Arkansas (Ar-kan-saw) you’re in for a fine or jail time. Just be sure not to flirt with those Northerners as you tell them they are breaking the law. In Little Rock, flirtation between men and women on the streets may result in a 30-day jail term. You might get to share a cozy cell together. Be careful. Don’t get extremely cozy in that cell. Oral sex is considered sodomy in Arkansas and is punishable."
