    Say the name of the lake again, but this time without the lollipop in you mouth.

    The passive way of saying “Fuck you, white men.”

    Why passive? That’s what it says when you translate it.

    Passive because white men can’t say it. Hell, I bet the Indians who sold/had it stolen from them can’t pronounce it. It’s just a “Fuck you” to the whole of humanity, it seems.

    You gotta comment here if you tried saying it out loud. I did.

    They named the lake so ridiculous as to protect the ancient spell – if you were to pronounce it in full perfectly a distinct taste of beef jerkey would immediately grace your senses.

    You’ve just spurred many people into trying this, repeatedly. You’re winner!

    Not that hard to pronounce once you’ve tried it a few times and gotten past the giggles.

    According to colourful (but false) legend, the name translates to “You fish on your side, I fish on my side, nobody fish in the middle”.

    Really, it just translates to “Englishmen at Manchaug at the fishing place at the boundary”.

    I read some months ago that it was actually misspelled (some extra G or something).

    And this is why they lost the war.

    Brave: “Chief, the white man is attacking! We need help!”
    Chief: “And help you will have! Where should I send my soldiers?”
    Brave: “Lake Chargoggagoggmanchaug- nevermind, everyone’s dead already.”
    White Guy: “lolz, I’m totally naming this place Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg for the irony.”

    Most from MA have learned how to say it, those who can’t just call it Webster Lake.
