So I was in a restaurant and while looking at the menu I noticed the map on the back and I also happened to notice a town called 'Intercourse'. *sniggered*

So what are some of the weirdest towns/cities you've heard or read about?

I used to live in a place called "Penrhyndeudraeth".

The nuttiest place name I've heard though, is
"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch".

As you can probably guess, both those places are in Wales.


EDIT: Here's a picture of the train station with the town name across it:

I hope I'm not the only one who saw the pure comedy in this post.

Celebration, FL would be funny if it wasn't so unfortunate.

Yup, it's where all the children's letters to Santa go. There's also a town in Indiana called French Lick.

There's also Hell, MI and Truth or Consequences, NM.

I know it's not a town/city, but in Georgia, there's a county called "Butts County".

All the best place names are in Australia. Wallaballoo is one, if I remember rightly. I have loads, I'll dig them out later.

Mr Noodles, that's not unusual. Literally 2 minutes from me is an area called The Butts.

That's even funnier when you think of it as saying "Cockburn, a taste of the Bush", since "The Bush" is another name for the Outback.

I've been to a town called, "No Name" and I live in Surprise, AZ.

If I'm not mistaken isn't there a place called "Nowhere" or "Some Where" here?

"A taste of the outback", to me, is funnier.

Two months ago I passed through a town which name was "Entrepenes" (entre penes = between pennis). It was funny but it was not spanish. In spanish it should be translated to "between rocks" (not that funny then)
