We wish they’d hurry up and do _something_ with the abandoned Burger King in Oconomowoc’s downtown. We know there are a lot of factors that keep that from happening, but, see, the thing is, without a Burger King one of the classic Oconomowoc jokes is broken.
Two tourists were driving through Wisconsin. As they were approaching Oconomowoc, 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 blond employee. “Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are… very slowly?
The blond girl leaned over the counter and said, Burrrrrr, gerrrrrr, Kiiiing.”
This old chestnut popped up recently at Travel Jokes Humor and Satire. Frankly, if you change the punchline to “Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrbbbieeeeeeees!” it just isn’t as funny.
