    Washington: They got Humptulips
    What about -
    Pysht (pissed with a lisp)
    Kalaloch (pronounced claylock)
    Sequim (pronounced Skwim)
    Steilacoom (pronounced STILL-uh-cum)
    Chehalis (pronounced shuh-HAY-liss)

    and the wonderfully boring:
    George, Washington :D

    @besserheimerphat could probably come up with a few more...
