Troy Man Realizes He’s Always Pronounced It “Chroy”

TROY – Martin Patterson IV, a lifelong Troy resident, realized that he’s always pronounced his hometown’s name “Chroy.” He came to the realization as he drove past a Troy water tower during a drunken ride home from Fricker’s.

“I was fresh off 6 pints from Fricker’s with my buddy Sullivan, and I was like ‘yo man it’s crazy we’ve always lived in Chroy.’ I accidentally spit on him a bit when my mouth made that ‘ch‘ sound. That’s when it hit me,” said Patterson.

The next morning, Patterson contacted the Miami County Bugle Caller to share his story.

“I know I’m not alone. In fact, I’ve never heard someone pronounce it with a hard ‘T.’ It just doesn’t sound right,” said Patterson. “Now, I think we should change the spelling all together.”

Patterson hopes he can generate enough support to march on Main Street and rally the city for change. As usual, Robin Oda has not been reached for comment.
