Near Rochester, NY is a town named Bergen.
The locals pronounce it BUR'-jin.

These aren't the droids you're looking for.
You can go about your business.
Move along.

Datil, NM rhymes with cattle, which there are a lot of. Pick up your "Jesus loves cowboys and cowgirls" bumpersticker at the general store.

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.
