Here are some interesting town names in my state and their logical locations. Solo is situated between Romance MO, and Lovers Leap MO. And from old European history, Waterloo sits between Napoleon and Wellington MO. Are there any such cases in your state?

There's Peculiar, just south of Kansas City. Pat & Mike are located within a stones throw of each other up in north central. Mike still has some residents but poor ol Pat has pretty much dried up and blowed away.

Michigan also has a Climax, near Kalamazoo. I live about 20 miles from Hell. There is a Paradise in the upper penisula. The weather forecasters are fond of saying "It's colder in Paradise than in Hell".

I want to learn about Point Lookout, Mo.
What county is it in, are there employment opportunities there? How large is the town?
Anyone from Point Lookout that can help?

People from far away come to Tightwad Missouri to open their cheking accounts at the local bank. Would be fitting to have my checks from the Tightwad Bank.

There ain't too many funny town names in New Hampshire. We do have Freedom and Unity but they're not close together ";^)
A section of the town I live in is called Knockers Hole and another part is Chickenboro. Up in Lincoln they have Pig's Ear. (I've been told that name comes from the triangle shape of the railroad track where they used to turn the trains around.)

From PA COMES forth the town of INTERCOURSE, PA. I hear it gets mighty wet most of the time. Residents are often warned to wear PROTECTION to keep dry.

There is a town called Intercourse, PA. I know that years ago the Philadelphia airport was selling nightshirts that had a silhouette of an Amish buggy, and the phrase, "Intercourse is for Lovers". I couldn't resist buying one for the wife :-).

Did you hear about the fellow who left Intercourse,Pa and moved to Climax,Ga??
Yes there is a town in Ga named Climax.

That's quite a long way to go for a Climax. Better stay home next time.

Once spent an entire night in Intercourse,I was a lot younger then.

Did you remember to wear protection?

There are so many oddly named towns here in Okla. that all you have to do is look at a map and go down the list. There is a TV program in Tulsa that is called "Strangley Named Towns". Slap-Out, Bug Tussle, Frog Town, Gypsy, and many more. Folks say you have to go thru "Bow Legs" and "Rubbottom" to get to "Maud". Lots of towns named for Indian Tribes and important Indian people too.

What about Atlantic City, WY; Tie Siding, WY; Severance, CO; Manhattan, MT.
