Smut Eye, Alabama

Watch out there, Billy Bob. You've got a little bit of smut in your eye.

Eek, Alaska

Via halaskaatlast-rach.blogspot.

It's not every day that you can spend a day in a town whose name is an onomatopoeia

Why, Arizona

Via Pinterest/foursquare.

You could visit this town in Arizona, but why?

Goobertown, Arkansas

Via dailystatesman.com.

There's no shortage of funky names in Arkansas! We had a lot to choose from, but something about Goobertown just struck us as funny.

Just think, Goobertown beat out such illustrious names as Blue Ball, Bald Knob, Greasy Corner, Nimrod, and Toad Suck to earn this dubious honor.

Rough & Ready, California

Via geographicallyyourswelcome.blogspot.

That sounds kind of dirty, but what would you expect from Cali?

As you'd expect, California also has towns named Sky High and Weed, because OF COURSE THEY DO.

No Name, Colorado

Via Flickr/Roger J. Wendell.

Maybe they'll get around to naming this place eventually. Then again, isn't weed legal there, too? Maybe they won't get around to naming it after all.

Happyland, Connecticut

Via Flickstream.

So your town's name sounds like an amusement park. That's... fun?

As if "Connecticut" wasn't a weird enough name.

Blue Ball, Delaware

Via TownMapsUSA.

Just the one ball is blue. Phew!

09

Two Egg, Florida

Via rootsweb.ancestry.com.

Our only question is, how close is Two Eggs to the popular town of Bacon?

10
of 50

Butts, Georgia

Via YouTube/Peter Chagnon.

Heh heh, your town's name is "butts."

Could be worse. You could live in Hardup or Jekyll Island, GA.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a town in Georgia that sounds completely epic, check out Thunderbolt! How cool is that?

Haiku, Hawaii

Hi. I'm from Normal. zzzzz

Gnaw Bone, Indiana

Via Pinterest/MichaelG.

There's nothing like a town name that summons a gruesome mental image.

Other towns in Indiana that deserve an honorable mention: Beaver City, Bono, Bud, and French Lick.

Balltown, Iowa

Via Wikipedia.

Hey guys, let's all go to BALLtown.

(Another town that seems like it was named by a 12 year-old.)

Neutral, Kansas

Via Google Maps.

According to Google Maps, Neutral, KS looks about as exciting as its name

Knob Lick, Kentucky

Via reallyweirdplacenames.blogspot.

Ah, Kentucky; please don't ever change! In addition to the hilariously lascivious town of Knob Lick, you can also find places like these in Kentucky:

Bald Knob (Guess they licked it too much?), Chicken Bristle, Fearsville, Hippo, Krypton (say hi to Superman's parents for us!), Mud Lick, Monkeys Eyebrow, Pig, and Raccoon.

Yup. Someone out there gets to tell people they're from Monkeys Eyebrow, KY. I guess it's better than being from Pig?

Miscellaneous Foreign City Names, Maine

Via onlyinyourstate.com.

For some reason, there are a bunch of towns in Maine that are named for other, larger, more famous places around the world. Poland, Mexico, Norway, Paris... how metropolitan! 

This world traveler sign in Lynchville, ME (pictured) proudly displays their state's lack of originality when it comes to choosing names.

Boring, Maryland

Via manolith.com.

If there's any place worse to live than Boring, we haven't found it yet.

(Just kidding, we're sure it's very nice there. Don't @ us.)

Via Geocaching.com.

Satan's Kingdom is so popular that there's also a town with that name in both Vermont and Connecticut.

Cooter, Missouri

Via capecentralhigh.com.

Is there any more Missouri-sounding word than "Cooter?" We think not.

Honorable mentions for Missouri: Conception, Humansville (Go humans!), Licking, Peculiar, and...drum roll please... Tightwad.

Big Sag, Montana

Not to be confused with Little Sag.

Worms, Nebraska

Via Flickriver/Joe Wicks.

"What should we call our town?"

"Hmm, I don't know, but we sure have a lot of worms here. Hey, that gives me an idea!"

There's a Dummerston, Vermont, too. I guess the Dummer clan got around the north country!

This town name sounds like Santa Claus sneezed in the middle of laughing.

Intercourse, Pennsylvania

Via Wikipedia Commons.

It sounds intriguing, but in reality it's filled with super-religious Amish people. True story.

Woonsocket, Rhode Island

Via Pinterest.

Unfortunately, the correct pronunciation of this town name isn't the super-fun "WOOON-SOCKET" but "one-sock-it."

Ah yes, beautiful Sugar Tit.
