Name Your Odd Place Names
on: July 26, 2007, 06:18:42 PM
 Talk about thread drift !! Elsewhere, a thread went waaaay OT...so let's have a little non-tool fun and start listing odd place names you know about.
 I'll start with a couple close to me here in Ohio...we have a place called Knockemstiff,and a few miles away from me is Getaway..once a stop on the Underground Railroad.
 Def has a couple places close to him that tops anything else..I'l let him post them..so let the listing begin!

The censor would get this one so I have to post a picture.



And yes, it's real too- look it up if you don't believe me!  For anyone who's kids may be looking on, they aren't learning a nasty word, they are learning Geography.

                    Kinda goes hand in glove with a certain place in Newfoundland doesn't it? Across the river in Kentucky you've got the towns of Red Hot..and Hi Hat.

Yeah I read an article about some Brits that laughed at the name, and the Austrians got mad, saying things like "We take F**king very seriously."

I'm not sure if it was real or not, but it was funny! 

BTW, where do you live Def?

Hmm... Climax, Michigan... Hell, Michigan... Paradise, Michigan (you can buy a map that highlights how to get from Hell to Paradise :) )

Then there's Christmas, Michigan... and Disco, Michigan
If you took all the intestines out of your body and stretched them end to end... you would die.
