Wisconsin Weirdness

I'll give ten bucks to anybody who lives outside of Wisconsin, or who is not from here, that can pronounce these city names or street names correctly. . .

- Waunakee
- Waukesha
- Oconomowoc
- Monomonee
- Ashwaubenon
- Sheboygan
- Menomonie
- Kenosha
- Okauchee

- Koshkonong Way
- Egre Street 
- Trempealeau Trail
- Lalumiere Rd.

But don't worry my friends, if you ever come visit, you won't have to ever remember the street names because half of the roads and major streets go by either numbers or letters, and all of the locals use those instead of the full name i.e.

Windsor = 19
Washington Ave. = 151
Bristol = Hwy N
Grand Ave. = Hwy C
Stoughton Rd. = 51

You'd think there would be some sort of system for numbering and lettering these roads, but as far as I can tell there isn't! And when you get through the end of the alphabet, they just start naming the highways with double letters such as Hwy TT, DM, Bb etc. Confused yet?? Try living here!  But at least there's a Happy Valley Rd. here close to us, makes me feel like we're back in P-Town again haha
