Kie-Wak-Eee

Since Kaiser was taken kayaking last summer he has not forgotten it. He saw a commercial on TV yesterday of two men kayaking and said, "Mom, I wanna go Ky-wak-eeeeee." I like the way he said it. I had to keep asking him, "what is it called?"
"Kie-Wa-Keeeee"

Sounds like a town in Wisconsin.

KieWaKee, WI, that could be the real way some cities got their name: Okanagan, Nanaimo, Skookumuchuck, Stehekin

"Get me out of this Stehekin place!"

Seriously, sometimes I think the Native Americans who lived here were screwing around with the Europeans:

"So what do you call this place?"

"This place? We call it...uh....Mukwanago."

"Really? What does that mean?"

"Mean? Er...It means..."Place that smells like...muck."

"How interesting! What about that other village we passed?"

"Oh. That's....Oconomonwoc."
