Nimrod, MN and Dumfries, VA are two of my favorites.
I also think of this one in the funny/awkward genre:
There is also a Cumming GA
I'm surprised cumming didn't make the list.
Sac Liquor is the best business name ever.
Booger hole? I can almost hear Dueling Banjos. WV, you are so special, both good and bad.
When I was travelling through Arkansas I had to stop and get a Toad Suck Harley shirt
When we lived VA we always loved the road sign for that exit.
Yes!!!!! I feel like we already had this conversation but can't remember how or why it came up. I lived in the Hampton Roads area and made many treks up 95 to DC. We always appreciated that sign.
Oregon has quite the variety...perhaps some of the folks from Boring found a solution to their problem and started up Wankers Corner???
Boring, Bridal Veil, Climax, Dead Ox Flat, Drain, Idiotville (ghost town), Plush, Remote, Riddle, Starvation Heights, Sublimity, Tangent, Voltage, Wankers Corner, Zigzag
Right up there with Beaver Liquors in Vail.
Chevy Chase, md. One town in Montana renamed there town Joe for like a week when Joe a Montana retired.
Yeah, lots of Native American names out here. I think it's kinda cool, though I sound like a derp when I visit places for the first time.
And up here, too. (Minnesota)
Minnesota is actually from the Sioux words for "cloudy water" or "sky tinted water".
I had a postcard from years ago that had all kinds of names on it, with two people on it & all kinds of question marks. The captain read something like "We're in Washington. We'd tell you where we are, but we can't pronounce it!".
People always seem to get the accent on the wrong syllable too, like "TACK-oh-mah" and "Yuh-KEE-muh" for Tacoma & Yakima...totally backwards!
When I first started working here and was dealing with names in Iowa, I struggled with alternative pronunciations like "Peeroo" and "NuhVAYduh". But I really butchered the heck out of pronouncing the tribal names here with "MAAA-ko-KEE-tuh" (Maquoketa).
They sold I love Cumming panties a long time ago.
Hey the car was was simply called Sac Wash.
My dad grew up in Sleepy Eye. Not missing much there.
