More fun with town names


I love studying maps, which in turn, leads me to finding some very unique town names. So for fun today, I thought I’d post a few more I found.  (I posted on this subject once before on October 10, 2013).

** Old Weiss and French Place, MT - Couldn't they make up their mind when naming the town?

** Truth Or Consequences, NM - Is that the home of Bob Barker?

** Truthville, NY - No one lies here.

** Lower Pig Pen, NC         

** Upper Pig Pen, NC - Was the place so bad, they needed to divide it in half?

** Hicksville, OH – Is this truth in advertising?

** Nowhere, OK - Everyone has to be somewhere.

** Poop Creek, OR - Don't drink the water.

** Toxaway, SC - Is this a toxic waste site?

** Red Shirt, SD - Don't wear a blue shirt there.

** Friendsville, TN - Everyone is friendly there.

** Turkey, TX - I bet this place does a booming business at Thanksgiving.

** Starbuck, WA - There's one on every corner.

** Scrabble, WV - They don't play Monopoly there.

** Pardeeville, WI - There is a party every night.

** Vulcan, Alberta, Canada - They're on another planet.

 

Now here’s one for the record books:

I dare you to say that!

 

It translates to: The great city of angels, the supreme unconquerable land of the great immortal divinity, the royal capital of nine noble gems, the pleasant city, with plenty of grand royal palaces, and divine paradises for the reincarnated deity, given by Indra and created by the god of crafting. (Visnukarma)
