Someone posted this to a group I belong to. I think it is funny!
Two American tourists were driving through Nova Scotia. As they were approaching Shubenacadie (shoe-been-aack-id-dee), they started arguing about the pronunciation of the town's name. They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch. As they stood at the counter, one tourist asked the waitress: "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are... Ver-r-ry slo-o-owly?"
The waitress leaned over the counter and said, "Tiiimmmmm Hoorrrrttoooonnns"!
