Most of the names in Louisiana, like street names or small cities and towns, are very hard to pronounce. If you aren't French or Creole, the words like are, "Fordoche," are not going to roll off your tongue. I live here and constantly mispronounce the names of people, places, and things.

Not everyone speaks Cajun French, Native Indian, or Creole language, including myself. In Louisiana, that can be problematic if you need to catch a taxi or an Uber and can't spell or pronounce where you are trying to go. That kinda sucks, because 80% of the places and things in the Bayou State have names that reflect the above heritages.

Below are the names of a few cities, towns, streets, rivers, lakes, Parishes, and neighborhoods that people almost always mispronounce. It's not hard to understand why. Just look how they are spelled!

Whether you are from Louisiana or not, most people can't pronounce these words. If you think you're a cut above the rest take the Cajun French Challenge and try to say them all! Don't cheat and click on the words first either. Ready? Go!

Bossier City
Grosse Tete
Lake Pontchartrain

So how'd you do? If you couldn't say them all you need not worry. Truth be told, there are very few people in the world that can pronounce all of these. That includes half of the people living in the state of Louisiana! So, if you are still scratching your head trying to figure out how to say those words there is no shame in giving up.

I didn't make it past the second word myself. Besides, I got a feeling we probably did a better job than these poor souls anyway.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
