Copy that!

A man and his wife were driving their RV across Florida and were nearing a town spelled “Kissimmee.” They noted the strange spelling and tried to figure out how to pronounce it — KISS-a-me, kis-A-me, kis-a-ME. They grew more perplexed as they drove into the town. Since they were hungry, they pulled into a place to get something to eat. At the counter the man said to the waitress, “My wife and I can’t figure out how to pronounce this place. Will you tell me where we are and say it very slowly so that I can understand?” The waitress looked at him and said, “Buuurrrgerrr Kiiinnnnng.”

FYI, having lived in FL for a few decades...

We pronounce it "ka-SIM-mee".

According to an April, 2013 news article, Kissimmee made the list of the top 10 most mispronounced city names in the US.

No, it is not obvious!

Yep - in Oregon, folks from elsewhere often mispronounce: Oregon, Tigard, Aloha, Willamette, and Multnomah, etc. My favorite was when a bank customer service rep from the east coast "corrected" my pronunciation of Oregon.
