The French names/mispronunciations are uniquely Midwestern tho. Louisiana Purchase.

Probably already discussed. Same goes for Spanish words.

?s=21&t=VLkeF6uw5WsFeYAEeWpSdQ

I learned this in college when we went to my buddy's lake house in the zarks and the closest town was Versailles. I pronounced it like the treaty of Versailles and he immediately told me I would get my ass kicked by some local yokels unless I pronounced it the correct way...Ver-Sails.

Like I know it's Ver-sails but it legit bothers me so much. Sounds so goddamn backwoodsy

Reminds me of something. My mom does this funny thing were she will use french pronunciations for english words. Like the Target is pronounced "TAR-zhay". One of many things I appreciate about my mom.

Yeah I instantly thought of the quirky hybrid "Vallejo". And yeah "Los Angeles"

That is the lamest video I've ever seen. I hate you for posting it.

This is probably specific to rural white Midwesterners but Rhubarb.

My dad transplanted one plant back to KC that had somehow survived out at the cat ranch for 20 years with no attention.

Just had some stalks tonight and they were damn tasty.

As a captive Garrison Keillor fan growing up, I regard this as specific to the upper, upper Midwest. As in the Lutheran communities of the fictional Lake Wobegon, Minnesota, and the factual places that inspired it. I never recall seeing rhubarb pie, or rhubarb in any other form, in Kansas. I'm sure it exists, but it wasn't really a "thing."

My maternal grandparents had rhubarb / rhubarb pie. Never liked it.

Had a great Aunt Hazel (name/shame?) from St. John that always brought gooseberry pie. Drowning in sugar. Kind of the same rhubarb midwest vibe.

Could she trace the lineage of the gooseberries to an actual goose?

White, Midwestern, Kansas, Lutheran here... my grandmother makes rhubarb pie and strawberry rhubarb pie. I think it's ok. It's my mom's favorite.

strawberry rhubarb is a good combination. Rhubarb by itself isn't as great.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

Just ruins perfectly good strawberry without masking the overpowering sourness of rhubarb.
