Paris, FRANCE?

By Sedulia @Sedulia

If you are an American living in Paris, you may get tired of Americans back home asking, "Paris, FRANCE?" when you say where you live (followed often by, "Wow, you sure speak good English!" since most Americans are firmly convinced that only foreigners live in Foreignland). 

Or, you may get tired of French people laughing that Americans always ask, "Paris, FRANCE?"

The fact is that there are two dozen American cities named Paris. So the question is not so stupid. Here are some of them.


Paris, Texas is the most famous, thanks to that dumb movie by a foreigner, full of Euro clichés about the U.S.


Paris, Kentucky. It's in Bourbon County. There's also a Versailles, Kentucky. Pronounced to rhyme with "for sales."
