I have what some people call an odd sense of humor. One of my things is places with strange names. Here are a few actual places with bizarre names that I've found. I wonder what they were thinking when they came up with them.

Beaver Lick, Kentucky

Hooker, Arkansas

Horneytown, North Carolina

Short Pump, Virginia

Three Way, Virginia

HooHoo, West Virginia

Zip City, Alabama

Hurricane, West Virginia I wonder if it's windy there.

Hell, Michigan

Slap Out, Alabama

Noodle, Texas

Lizard Lick, North Carolina

Spot, Tennessee

Peculiar, Missouri

Zap, North Dakota After you go here go to Zip City

Embarrass, Minnesota

Monkey's Eyebrow, Kentucky

Toad Suck, Arkansas

Accident, Maryland

A couple more I found are on this thread. Here

Can you find any more places with off beat names for my collection?

That's funny, I've been to Noodle, Texas.
It's not too far from were I was raised.

I have one from South Africa.
Tweebulledoodgeskietmeteenskootfontein!
Twee bulle dood geskiet met een skoot fontein. Now for direct translation: Two bulls dead shot with one shot fountain. Nicely translated, Two bulls shot dead with one shot fountain.

ETA But oh no!, this town just may be an undercover agent town, in disguise using the sign as a cover to throw people off .. ..so as never to call for people's interest ....so noone will be able to find out the truth to their secrets!

Probably my favorite one in Texas:

Cut and Shoot, Texas

It's between Conroe and Cleveland, TX. It's actually quite pretty. Pronounced 'Cut 'N Shoot' by residents.
