Place Names That Sound Funny to Others.

(1/26) > >>

I believe this was a thread some years ago.  It might be fun to start it up again. It also might relieve a bit of holiday stress.

In Brooklyn, we have a Force Tube Avenue.

The Bronx has a Featherbed Lane. 

New Jersey has places named Peapack and Cheesequake.

One of my favorites is an archaeological site in England named Wetwang Slack. 

There have to be many more goodies out there.  Let's share them.

Texas is ripe with odd town names. We have a little town name Raisin which is just about that big- my joke is that the city limit signs are back to back on the same pole! There's Cut & Shoot (aptly named), Happy, and Turkey...and those are just a few.  ;D

South Carolina has Ninety Six, North, and Due West.  North, South Carolina amuses me.

I'm fond of Slack's Creek in Queensland Australia.

Sometimes in the summer I attend concerts at a venue on Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in Massachusetts.

I also am a big fan of Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Maine.
