“Tell me about Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg.”

It’s also called Lake Chaubunagungamaug for short, or Webster Lake for outsiders, and is located in Worcester County, Massachusetts, near the town of Webster.

Its name comes from Nipmuc, an Algonquian language, and supposedly translates to, “You fish on your side; I fish on my side; nobody fishes in the middle.” However, that translation has been disputed and may have been made up by an early 20th century newspaper correspondent. A more accurate translation may be the “fishing point that’s at the boundaries and which is a neutral meeting point.”

My GPS churned out Kamehameha Highway OK in Hawaii. It’s almost worth the drive to Worcester (pronounced “WOOS-ter” by the way) to hear it speed read through the alphabet.
