Have you ever wondered how cities were named? I have and their reasons leave me scratching my head.
Unalaska, Alaska – Apparently they didn’t
want to be part of Alaska.
Why, Arizona – Why not? Oh, yeah. That's in Mississippi.
Turkey Scratch, Arkansas - Happy turkeys?
Zzyxz, California – They learned the alphabet backwards.
Bonanza, Colorado – I thought the Ponderosa was in Nevada?
Moosup, Connecticut – Is there a Moosdown?
Hill and Dale, Florida – Apparently they couldn’t decide between one or the other name.
Hopeulikit, Georgia – Hope you do.
Zaza, Idaho - Hmmmm?
Normal, Illinois – Is anywhere normal?
Crab Town, Iowa – When I think of crabs, I picture the ocean, not an inland state.
Kickapoo, Kansas – Watch where you step.
Spider, Kentucky – I won’t go there – I don’t like spiders.
Frogmore, Louisiana – Is there a Frogless?
Deadman’s Corner, Maine – Stay away from there, bodies are pilling up on the street corners.
Unicorn, Maryland – I thought Unicorns were extinct.
Now just when you think those are weird. Look at the breaking news coming out of either New Hampshire or Maryland...either way...it will give you a laugh.
