    Kentucky is full of these funny town names. My fave is Big Bone Lick, KY about 30 miles south of Cincinnati. There's also a French Lick in Indiana and Fart, VA.

    From Urban Dictionary:

    To get to Intercourse, PA go through Bird-in-Hand, pass Blue Ball, stay on the same road, and you'll find Intercouse. Afterwards you'll go through Paradise.

    or

    If you pass by Intercourse, PA you will end up in Blueball, PA.

    I didn't know we had Fart VA but we do have some nice pronunciations here, like Buena Vista, pronounced B-you-na Vista and Dante, pronounced D-ain't.

    (just reposting a joke I found)



    GRANDMAS ARE SMART

    I was out walking with my grandson. He picked up something off of the ground
    and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I
    asked him not to do that.

    "Why?" my grandson asked.

    "Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's
    dirty, and probably has germs. Sometimes germs make little boys sick and not
    feel good" I replied.

    At this point, my grandson looked at me with total admiration and asked,
    "Grandma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart."

    I was thinking quickly and said to him, "All Grandmas know stuff. It's on
    the Grandma Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Grandma."

    We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently
    pondering this new information. "Oh...I get it! He beamed, so if you don't
    pass the test you have to be the Grandpa."

    "Exactly," I replied with a big smile on my face.

    I've been to Nimrod, OR.

    In eastern NY, the hamlets of Climax and Surprise are about 7 miles apart.

    In Schoharie, NY, there is an area that used to be called Sodom, and that name can still be seen on some older topo maps.
    There was an Upper Sodom road and a Lower Sodom road, but they finally changed the names about a decade ago to more
    pleasant sounding names (Morning Sun and Sunnyside).

    A few years ago they changed the name of our township, when a number of townships were consolidated into one. Until then, I had the distinction of living in the Township of Bastard.

    Reminds me of a couple spots we go through during Race Across America (bicycle race). In Arizona, we go beyond Hope. In Kansas, we get to pass Gas.

    I took a picture of that sign when I saw it, as well. Larry Bird was from French Lick. Newfoundland has some good names- Placentia Bay, and Dildo
