Interesting or funny place names
I got this idea from another thread. Place names have allways been of interest to me, partly because of their historical implications such as names ending in "by" like Grimsby or Ashby. These were a result of saxon invasion where the "by" meant it was a farming stronghold.

Other names like Upton Snodsbury are wonderfully colorfull while in Dorset, there is a river called the river Piddle with some towns built along it with names like Piddletown, Puddletown, Piddletrenthide or Sh!tterton.

you get the idea....................

I've wondered the origins of some of the unusual names in Europe. We seem to have a "different" brand of humor here in the US. Take for example Pennsylvania....I'm sure we lead the rest of the states in unusual/odd/funny town names. Here are just some of them:

1. Intercourse (wonder what the high school cheer is?)
2. Blueball (for those who don't get to #1 or #9 often enough)
3. Bird-In-Hand (you know the old saying)
4. Balls Mills (hmmmm)
5. Bath Addition (birthplace of home remodeling?)
6. Braintrim (craniotomy anyone?)
7. Breakneck (what'll happen if you spend to much time in #25)
8. Bulger (makes you popular in #1, #9 and probably #24)
9. Bumpville ()
10. Choconut (don't ask...don't tell)
11. Climax (every womans dreamtown)
12. Coon Hunter (can you say racial tension)
13. Coplay (waypoint on the way to #1, #9 and if you're lucky #24)
14. Foot Of Ten (heck if I know)
15. Gum Stump (can't think of anything right now)
16. Hosensack (so many quips...so little time)
17. Live Easy (retirement community?)
18. Log Pile (any toilet bowl mfg's there?)
19. Nany Glo (what I did to my babysitter)
20. Ogle (what you do in #24)
21. Scalp Level (what might happen if you do #1 or #9 in #24)
22. Tanguy (I picture leisure suits and disco)
23. Two Lick (Come on honey, pretend it's a popcickle)
24. Virginville (Madona doesn't live there)
25. Vrooman (fast cars, loose women I guess)

Cop: Sir, have you been drinking? Driver: Why? Is there a fat girl in my backseat?
