Regina has absolutely nothing. It is a delusion of a city.
It's good for use in limericks.
This is true. But it shows an awareness of how it's properly pronounced.
Yes, I think a lot of people assume it is just a made up place too just for the convenience of the rhyme.
I've had Americans correct me on the pronunciation. One even persisted after I told her I was from that horrible province.
Reminds me of the joke about the three Chicago streets that rhyme with “Vagina”: Paulina, Medina, and Lunt.

Flintstones Vitamins still exist:

I can't recall the last time I saw them on the shelf, but I'd buy 'em in a heartbeat.
