It Does A Body Good

Dairy Barn

Lima, Ohio


In one of my favorite movies, the remake of “The Thomas Crown Affair”, Pierce Brosnan’s character refers to Rene Russo’s character’s childhood in Lima. He pronounces it as one pronounces the Lima found in Peru. I laugh and laugh every time. I am also unable to pronounce it any other way myself now.

    Don’t forget all of the other great Ohio pronunciations, like Versailles, Bellefontaine, Berlin…not to mention Nerk. 🙂

    I love that about Ohio, so much; we name out towns after great cities of the world and then purposely mispronouce most of them. It cracks me up. I’m kind of surprised Rome & London’s pronunciations got left alone.

    (Don’t forget Milan!)
