Funny town names
 
I don't know if this really belongs under games, so mods - if it needs to be moved, I understand.


Name towns with funny names. For example

No Name, CO

We have a town in Ireland in a county called Tipperary called OOLA.

Americans especially refer to it as 'double O LA!'

Sorry ladies!!

Truth And Consequences, NM. Used to be called Hot Springs but they changed it in 1950 after a radio show held a contest.

My Dad thought it was very funny that there were 3 nearby towns in Pennsylvania, first you drove through Intercourse, then Blue Ball, and finally Paradise, PA. ;)

There is a little island called No Name Key (near Key West, Florida), I read of a town called No Name on the first page of this thread. Florida also has a Yeehaw Junction, I kid you not. :D

Sorry it doesn't let me include the picture or the link and not even spell the correct town name:cool: but if you're very imaginative you put (edited by KayKay because there's a reason the forum software puts out asterisks and that's because words like that aren't allowed) instead of **** and www. infront of it and find the picture yourself.

****ing is a town in Austria and the sign below reads 'Please not so fast' ... haha
But it's meant to slow down the traffic for children's safety - what did you think?

:D:D:D:Dam still laughing.

Dear KAYKAY
Thanks for your apprehensiveness and the prompt intervention of preventing me from publicizing a ‘not allowed word’ here but how can a name of a town be not allowed. Imagine TEXAS was a bad swear word, you would never be allowed to tell anyone where you live.

Rules are good but they can not exist without exceptions:rolleyes:

KayKay May 6th, 2011 09:28 PM

Speaking of rules, just in case you haven't had a chance to read them, the forum rules are here: http://www.friendsandfamilyforum.com...aq_forum_rules

Nothing Arizona. Population: 4

Got gas there once. Sometime back around 1983. I think it was like .60 cants a gallon. Bought a Dr. Pepper and belched.

Nice place. Boring... but nice. Wouldn't want to live there.
