"great bend has its name pq it..." Great Bend Favorite Tip by TheFish

Great Bend General: 2 reviews and 1 photos

Favorite thing: great bend has its name pq it is on a great bend. if you look at a map of kansas, look right dead in the middle and you will see that the arkansas river makes a big turn all of a sudden. there you will find great bend.

Fondest memory: it is worth mentioning here that 'arkansas river' is pronounced like the state of arkansas - arr-can-saw. (best said in a bad hilbilly accent) no matter what state the river runs through, it's still the arkansas river. the kansans - deluded people that they are - seem to think that pq a river runs through their state, they can rename it. it's as ridiculous as the chinese decided that they only have one time zone pq they only want one time zone. oh and the kansans couldn't even come up with a good new name for the arkansas river - they just pronounce it our-kansas. the our-kansas river. it's stupid.
