guys here wen't the creative way
I'm originally from Wombwell, South Yorkshire
You poor boy...
I always thought that they should build an Outer Planets observatory in Connecticut, near Greenwich in fact, so that scientists could see Uranus from Mianus...
I don't mean this post to be offensive to anyone, but as a teenager in the Portland Oregon area in the 60's and 70's, (and always out looking for girls), it amazed me someone in the past named a town "Beaverton." As a 16-yr-old I just couldn't understand how someone in the distant past with city-naming powers could have so much incredible foresight looking into the future to name a city reasonably accurately.
This might not be humorous ( just odd I guess) but I heard it mentioned today and thought it might fit in here:
Swastika, Ontario, was linked to the Mitford family (they owned mines there)the wealthy British family who were in turn linked to the Nazis (Diana Mitford married Oswald Moseley, leader of the British Facist party). Probably not an association the residents make much of these days.
Climax, Minnesota is just north of Morehead, Minnesota.
There's a place (not a town really) along the Appalachian Trail, reachable by car called
I just like that name. As for some of these overly scatalogical posts, doesn't anyone tire of this sort of thing? Jes Wonderin'.
If you wanna see a lot of amusing small town names, just pull out an AAA map of Kentucky or West Virginia. Check out the Western part of WV and the Eastern, mountainous parts of KY. Dozens of them, really, sometimes one after another after another in the holler. Diablock, then Avawam, then Wooton, then Smilax, then Cutshin, then Yeaddiss. This sort of thing.
In north central Oregon, there's the town mentioned already called Dufur. Not far away is the town of Rufus. I always wanted to start a community midway between the two towns where I could be the first mayor of Doofus, Oregon.....
A good ways south of there is a town now called Drewsey. It was originally named "Gouge Eye", supposedly because of the way they used to deal with either horse or cattle thieves. The U.S. government made them change their name in order to get a post office.....
In one of the later Grand Tour episodes they take a road trip through Germany from Kissing to Petting and this town in Austria:
Just passing through, eh?
A toy version of a metal band?
But to be fair, I bet that was the name of the town much earlier, and they added the band font recently.
haha no it has nothing to do with mattel
matellica means someone who is too meticolous & other depending on the dialect it's been around since 101 BC, yeah .. just a "couple of years earlier"
There's a place between St Albans and Hatfield, England, where I think the bra was invented. It's called Tyttenhanger.
The city's supposed to be in Indiana, I don't think the church sign is real.
Here are a few more from Oz that aren't necessarily funny, but are a treat to hear pronounced for the first time by outsiders:
And Missouri still has Climax Springs and Knob Noster.
