"Network Apologizes For Mocking Athol"

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/03/06/ap/strange/main3915750.shtml

(AP) A cable sports network says it no
longer will make Athol the butt of its jokes. Comcast SportsNet said
Thursday it would pull a newspaper ad that leaders of the small central
Massachusetts town called insulting and offensive.

The ad featured two side-by-side signs that together read: "We can pronounce Worcester ... without sounding like an Athol."

I grew up one town over from Athol 😛 It was always a joke the kids would play: hold your tongue and say "Athol".
