Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchau bunagungamaugg

No, the cat didn’t jump on my keyboard. It’s an actual name for a lake that is located in the town of Webster in Massachusetts, United States. Some people call it by its alternate name - Lake Chaubunagungamaug, while others prefer to call it simply Lake Webster, after the name of the town. The 45-letter name for this body of fresh water is often cited as the longest place name in the United States and one of the longest in the world. The name is so bizarre that even the authorities couldn’t spell it. Many road signs pointing to Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg have spelling mistakes in them.
