I can... how many people can correctly pronouce "Mackinac?" :p Then if you get that right we go to its older (longer) name... "Michilimackinac."

Those poor girls, now they're never gonna be able to forget that guy's license plate number. :p



I've got a question. How many of you people not from Michigan can correctly pronounce Ypsilanti? Ready...go!:DI can, because it's a name that's in the Greek side of my family, I think it's my great-grandmother's middle name even.

The fort at the mainland right under the bridge is called Ft. Michilimackinac however the town chopped off the front half and its just Mackinac.

Tuktuyuktuck, I'm guessing you're speaking about the town way up in da north of Canada ehh?

Would it dampen the positive nature of the article to find out that the guy's license plate was "1234ABC"? :rolleyes:

I've got a question. How many of you people not from Michigan can correctly pronounce Ypsilanti? Ready...go! :D Is it "toe-mah-toe"? :p

I can, because it's a name that's in the Greek side of my family, I think it's my great-grandmother's middle name even. Well, it turns out I wasn't exactly correct about this, it's her family name because apparently we're related to the namesake of the city, General Demetrius Ypsilanti, a member of the prominent Ypsilanti family.
