Only if you're drunk
People pronounce it Missoura? Weird.Everyone here in the Mid-West want the rest of the world to know something. There is a long e sound on the end of Missouri. No one says Mississippa, so why Missoura?
We here in the bread basket just wanted you to know and not sound like a jackass.
