Recently I stumbled across the website of a town in the panhandle of my home state, Florida . It's name...Two Egg.
Although it's technically in Florida, I need to remind you that it is also very, very close to south Georgia...a state with towns named, Ludowici (that's loudiewhizee) Hephzibah, Cairo (pronounced locally as Kayrow), Euharlee, Gumlog, Hahira, Ocilla, Quitman, and Unidilla. Just thought I'd mention it.
Of course not being able to leave silliness well enough alone, and in the spirit of B of C's "What Were They Thinking" Award, I went looking for other silly place names in the U.S. Naturally, I gravitated toward the, ah, well, bawdy ones.
Somewhat of an aside...in the interest of time (I am doing this in the middle of the day, you know), I restricted my search to the U.S., but I do have two all time favorites, both of which are in the UK. I present, Wetwang and the enviable, Penistone.
So, here for your lurid and salacious enjoyment, a few that I found. Feel free to add your own...suggestive or otherwise...you horn-toady dogs you.
Hooker, Oklahoma was settled by some folks from,
Hooker Hole, Louisiana, methinks
I am Certain that Romance, Arkansas has nothing to do with Horneytown, North Carolina, but hey ya never know.
Is it possible that the people of French Lick, Indiana may have antecedents in Sweet Lips, Tennessee?
Surely Busti, New York and Bird in Hand, Pennsylvania, have some connection.
Fanny, West Virginia is, well, not that far from Big Beaver, Pennsylvania (almost around the corner, as it were). BTW, we also have a Beaver right here on the plain Plains...not a big one though...small one.
Great minds do indeed run in the same circles, methinks. Take Butts, Georgia and Buttzville, New Jersey, for example.
I'm loving Loving, New Mexico, because, I love New Mexico.
Intercourse, Pennsylvania is a long way from Climax, Georgia, butt I think it was good for both of them.
And then we have,
Dicktown, New Jersey (nothing to do with Dick Nixon...maybe)
Erect, North Carolina (a hard place to find)
New Erection, Virginia (Jesus!)
Dickshooter, Idaho (and you thought all they had were potatoes).
I'm wondering what happened for these folks to name their town, Conception, Missouri...any ideas?
And finally a place Tiger ought to consider retiring to...Fidelity, Missouri.
