Every state has at least a few towns with names only the locals know how to pronounce. We’ve all seen them on the map or even been through them. Sure, the locals will tease you when you mispronounce their town name, but how are you supposed to know some of these names!?

We decided to have a little fun with some coworkers from Texas to see how they pronounce some of Wyoming’s most difficult town names.

We identified nine Wyoming towns that we thought they may find challenging, and the results are hilarious!

Based on how our Texas friends pronounced these names, we have created our list of the most difficult town names to pronounce in the Equality State.
