Well, sounds like you've pretty much covered it. What could we possibly add to that?

 

There is a town in Illinois called "Effingham". So what? But it sounds to me like something you'd hear at a nice Brooklyn dinner

 

Ay...you, pass me da effing ham.

 

And, it was funny a couple of years ago when the Chinese got to name a typhoon. They named it "Longwang".

There's a village nearby that's named Lutjebroek.

 

There's a small town in the Netherlands named Amerika.

Hey! I live very near to Paradise, Blue Ball, Bird in Hand, and Intercourse, Pa.

 

They are all on the same road (Route 30 if you ever want to visit) all on the way to Amish country, Lancaster, Pa.

 

Who said the Amish don't have a sense of humor?

I really don't know what to put here.

Spent time in Condom France--receieved it's name from the WWII airfield located there..the small "servicing huts" are still there...nothing else around-- a red light district in Southern France.

 

Also a jetty of land called Hell >> on the top of Poland--they sell postcards with "Been to Hell and Back" :cool:

 

Been to Piddle & Lickey End in England

 

Never did find that sign in Austria for the town listed?

 

French Lick is a great spot in Southern Indy

There's a Mars, Pennsylvania. Not as funny as the others, but kinda cute to say you're from Mars.

 

I've been near Dildo, NFLD. Wanted to have my picture taken with the roadsign, but was damn cold that day. ;)

OT:

People have odd names too, the CEO at my old job was named T Kleverman - he might be a clever man but he's not a good leader (hence the "was", he lined his own pockets and a bunch of folks got laid off because of finacial difficulties. Yes, he got fired - with a nice parachute :evil: ).

Yeah, I've driven down Big Beaver Road before. There's also a "Hell, Michigan" near Ann Arbor.

 

As for names, the absolute best I heard (and as Dave Barry would say, I am NOT making this up)...a gynecologist (now retired) in Port Huron Michigan...named Dr. Licker. I shit you not.
