Wacky Town Names

Man, we have some weird towns out there. And I’m not even talking about just the USA although we have plenty of our own. Here are some interesting questions when pondering some of these towns:

What do they call the Church in Hell, MI? The Church of Hell?

How do you vote and win in Equality, AL?

Can you have a cat in Dog Village, Britain?

What’s the number one export in Dildo, Newfoundland?

Wouldn’t a whore house have been a turnoff in Big Hole, WY?

Are they playing Donna Summer 24x7 in Disco, WI?

Why would you ever have a town event in Boring, OR?

Is it ok to just give up in Can do, ND?

Where are you really when you’re in Mexico, NY?

Can you be late in Ready, KY?

What are they doing over in Intercourse, PA?

What if you ask for seconds in Enough, MO?

These are important questions folks.

Ha! You forgot Coxsackie, NY! I kid you not. The first time I was driving to Albany and saw the sign, I started laughing and said the town must have sprung around a thong factory!

VE said...

red mojo - Ha! Good one. Yeah, not only did I forget that one, but I forgot part of my post. I only had 3/4 posted when you saw it. I did include a NY town...

Beth said...

I had no idea there's a Dildo, Newfoundland here in Canada. And I've visited Newfoundland - don't know how I could have missed Dildo.
Trust you to find it!

Practically Joe said...

It's not impolite to burp in public when you're in Belchertown, MA

damon said...

I'd like to know who gets the city naming gig, and what their bringin home after taxes.
And why I can't have that job!

Nessa said...

Here in NJ we have Shades of Death Road, near Jenny Jump State Forest on your way up to Allamuchy. It's haunted, of course.

VE said...

beth - I see a road trip is the forseeable future! Ha ha

joe - Cool. I could definitely accomodate in that town.

damon - Town renaming...it's the new refinancing! Good luck on that job. I hear there's a lot of travel...

nessa - Those sound like cup half empty sort of people! ha ha. They need a waterpark! That'll fix it all. Waterparks fix everything...

Megan said...

Gawd I'd love to live in 'Enough' that just cries out to me somehow...

VE said...

megan - Except when you get that pitiful paycheck and your boss says it 'enough'!

Anndi said...

Figure they invented the barf bag in Hoosick, NY?

They have strange habits in Toad Suck, AK

VE said...

anndi - Well if my name was Mr. Hoo, I wouldn't be moving there! ha ha. Good ones!

Nessa said...

NJ's water parks are sprinkler puddles.

Nessa said...

No, I jest. We actually have a Six Flaggs - more flags, more fun.

Kanrei said...

Weed, Ca!

I love this photo: a classic

VE said...

Nessa - See, that makes New Jersey a wonderful place that we all envy as paradise!

kan - I have been in that very spot may a times! It's about 350 miles south from me. It's a tough decision even to this day too! ha ha

Shrinky said...

Um, had no idea Newfoundland was so exciting.. packing my case as I type.

Grin

VE said...

shrinky - Yes, I can see them needing to expand their airport real soon. The word is out...

Kurt said...

I have been to Cocking, England.

VE said...

kurt - I don't even want to know what they do there!

Bee said...

I want to live in Dildo, Newfoundland!! I'm telling the hubs we're packing up and moving to Dildo!!

The Offended Blogger said...

You forgot Truth or Consequences, New Mexico! :)

I could never live there..

VE said...

bee - Better hurry, housing sales have suddenly gone way up!

offended - I could hand out consequences since I never seem to get the truth! Is that whole town like the game show?

Jeff said...

Someone needs to get the people from Intercourse together with the folks from Climax, MN. NOW!

Serena Joy said...

Those are some strange town names. I'd heard of a couple of them, but mostly not. Jeff beat me to the punch with Climax, but the Climax I was thinking of is in NC.:)

VE said...

Jeff - Yeah, and invite the folks from Dildo and you've got enough for an HBO series! We can call it Small Town Smut and have it air right after Sex in the City...

VE said...

sj - You can never have too many climaxes!

Lori said...

I have always wanted to take a trip to Hell and back!!

Yes, there is a Church of God in Zillah, WA.

VE said...

lori - Ha ha. Took me a second to see the Godzilla reference...man I must be getting slow tonight!

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

I totally have to check out Dildo....

Alex L said...

Dildo is the funniest word ever, apart from... hmmm I probably shouldnt say that word should I. Well its relative to dildo... lets just say that (it doesnt start with 'c').

Matt-Man said...

Is Ready, Ky. near Big Bone Lick State Park? Cheers!!

leelee said...

Of course...this weird and wacky state has a few good ones as well:

We have Cadillac, Christmas,
AND Day, FL
Frostproof- Duh!!
Havana, FL - Lucy...I'm HOME!

Mayo, and Two Egg, FL

Like I said....weird and wacky!

HUGS!!!!

VE said...

arizona - Better hurry, things are filling up!! ;)

alex - As Dr. Ruth used to say, don't be afraid to use the word! ha ha

matt-man - Ha! Why does it not surprise me that you would know where that park is!

leelee - Good ones. What if I want a three egg omlette in Two Egg, FL though?

colbymarshall said...

This makes me want to see a postmark for Dildo...

VE said...

colby - I am afraid it is smaller than you had hoped...

justacoolcat said...

I always liked Payne, Mn.

Yeah, I've been through Payne.

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

i once posted a query on my blog about what it must be like to be a Satanist in Christchurch, New Zealand. How odd would the get-together invitations look?

Come Join The Satanic Fun and Sacrifice At The First Annual Pentagram Dance Festival Located in Beautiful Christchurch.

So disconcerting.

yellojkt said...

I've been to Intercourse and it doesn't live up to the name. I also recently saw Mianus and have the pictures to prove it.

Bunk said...

I've been to Bangs, Ohio, and passed by Big Bone Lick State Park in KY, not to mention Ballarat in California's Mojave Desert.

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

Ha ha ha! Then I better get there fast.

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

OMGosh Yellowjkt...
Is Mianus pronounced "my anus"?? That's too funny!

VE said...

justacoolcat - I like to avoid Payne...I'll just stay home

elastic - Ha ha. Good one. The town is probably full of Muslims anyway...

yellowjkt - Ha! I've been through Intercourse too. Perhaps you weren't driving through it right...
And you know...I'm not really sure I want to see your Pictures of that!! ha ha ha

bunk - I've been to ballarat too! My VW broke down close by there. I didn't see any rats around though.

arizona - For shame! Are you talking about your anus again?! ;)

Bonnie the Boss said...

I have always wanted to live in Hell. Mostly because I think I already live there.

VE said...

bonnie - Maybe you're in its suburbs...
