Truth or Consequences, NM


Laundry_Castle

Literally what I expected to see and was disappointed it was Pie Town.


ivanIVvasilyevich

Agreed that said I do love pie town. There’s like 3 buildings in the town and one makes pies. Fantastic.


chibimermaid6

My parents met, dated, and got married close to that area. My great grandmother and grandfather lived in pie town before they passed. Neat little place.


ivanIVvasilyevich

Haha that’s bananas. They must have been two of all of 12 people in the town lmao. I grew up in Santa Fe. New Mexico’s a funky little corner of the earth.


chibimermaid6

Yeah, pretty much! I have more family in taos. You're right, it is a funky little corner :D


dancin-weasel

So 1/3 of the town makes pies. That’s quite a percentage.


ivanIVvasilyevich

It is called Pie Town after all


City_dave

3/3 eat pies


speghettiday09

Toy box killer is why I know about that place. Gotta call from there a while back, freaked me out


MartoufCarter

It was renamed as part of a promotion for a game show.

Boring, Oregon: "The most exciting place to live."


yttrium39

I live in Portland (Boring is on the outskirts of Portland) and I can assure you that Boring is named accurately.


RiverInhofe

Can confirm, im also a portlander, and my sister lives in boring


fluentindothraki

Twinned with Dull Perthshire, Scotland. They are also linked with Bland Shire, Australia.


tomasves02

*Gravity Falls intensifies*


westerosi_wolfhunter

West Virginia also has a town named “Big Ugly” and I only know this because one time a saw a headline in the newspaper that said “big ugly woman arrested” and I was like wtf? So I read it and it was just saying the town she was from. Lmao. Like “Florida man” and that type of shit. Kinda funny though.


Blabatee

I like Big Ugly too and it’s actually a place. Not sure Booger Hole is.


World-Tight

Have you met my friend, Biggus Dickus?


tomasves02

*barely holds back laughter* What's so funny... about... Biggus... Dickus? He has a wife, you know?


texan01

Incontia Buttocks.


SepulchralExuberance

I live in Michigan and "Free Soil" it's probably one of the most normal names of cities in this state.


DBWolverine

Right, I think Climax, Colon, Hell, Vulcan, Bad Axe, Slapneck, Christmas or Jugville all suit better than Free Soil.


SepulchralExuberance

Paradise, Dowogiac, Charlotte, Gogebic, Ontonogon, Escanaba, Mackinac and Mackinaw right beside each other ... I mean the weird bastardizations of native American and French pronunciations and transliterated names of cities, townships, villages, etc are too numerous to mention. It's a good place to live though.


cpohabc80

I've lived in too many of the places you just named.


SepulchralExuberance

I'm sorry if I brought up any bad memories but I'm glad if I brought up good ones.


cpohabc80

A mix of both I guess, I just think it is wild that I have lived in three of the places you mentioned as being oddly named.


JakeJacob

>Mackinac and Mackinaw Aren't these pronounced the same, too?


GeneralMoron

You forgot Gay


ecarg91

sometimes you need to go through colon to get to climax


fancyglob

Hell and Nirvana.


SameOldSongs

It's one of my favorites in this list. That name came from the heart.


CuntsInSpace

I love camping near Free Soil


impossiblepixel

Zzyzx, CA has my vote. Also Touchet, WA, because it’s apparently pronounced “tushie”.


rayrayww3

Nah, Humptulips takes it for WA


retarredroof

With honorable mention for Dosewallips (DOH-see-Wall-ips).


Glad_Huffelpuffz

Heh Tushie


DivineAnimosity

There is also Dickshooter, Idaho


mc_jacktastic

Kentucky also has Monkey's Eyebrow, which is arguably way better of a candidate for this map than Pig.


Duthco

Honorable mention: Possum Trot


pterodactyla

"Beaverlick" is an unincorporated community in Boone County, Kentucky. Understandably didn't make the cut because it's not a town, but still


ZeusDrinksHoneyMilk

Satan's Kingdom made the cut and it's an unincorporated village ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯


Lithium-Ryan-Battery

I'm not far from Edmonson County. Calling Pig a town is a real stretch. Is Pig really that weird in a state that has Rabbit Hash, Kingdom Come, Hell for Certain, Lickskillet, Sugartit, Possum Trot, Black Bottom, Tyewhoppety, Cutshin, Vortex, and Climax?


whenuseeit

Yeah I passed through there last year on my way to Mammoth Cave NP. From the map it seemed like it was just the area around an intersection with a smattering of houses and an old timey diner (which we ate lunch in and was delicious).


Lithium-Ryan-Battery

That's pretty much it. If you blink you'll miss it.


CosmicCreeperz

Not arguably better, it’s in another league.


Rod___father

I think intercourse PA is better then coupon


Barflyerdammit

Or Bird In Hand. And I'm saying this as someone who grew up in Frogtown, PA.


Environmental_Store9

Do you even have frogs over there?


ytctc

Yep


jleonardbc

Runner-up: Blue Ball.


PHLSchwarmer

Having grown up in Lancaster County PA, the first "dirty joke" I learned as a kid, half a century ago: "You have to go through Blue Ball and Intercourse before you get to Paradise"


marasydnyjade

What about Blue Ball, PA? Or Climax? Or Jugtown? Or any of the Beavers, Beaver, Big Beaver, Beaver Falls? The worst *has* to be North Versailles, pronounced “Ver-sales.”


jpoteet2

Yeah I'm pretty sure Coupon doesn't make the top ten in PA.


Dizi4

Jersey Shore, PA is the strangest one to me.


JandolAnganol

Story goes that it was settled by people from New Jersey and the other town across the river didn’t much care for them and took to calling it the “jersey” shore. It might predate the “Jersey Shore” resort area as a term, idk for sure though.


kcvngs76131

Don't forget Virginville!


JDG_AHF_6624

Satan's Kingdom isn't an actual town's name here in MA though. It's an unincorporated village within the town of Northfield. We've got some actually pretty weird town names tho.. Orange & Florida, MA to name a couple.

I feel like this map is just like one of those Facebook posts that is obviously wrong to entice people to comment/engage on how wrong it is.


sydbarrett

Embarrass? Climax?


WuanTonBomb

This map is made by someone who googled a clickbait town name list.


WeHaSaulFan

Toad Suck is not a town. No one even lives there. It’s a place where there used to be a ferry across the Arkansas River, about 6 miles west of Conway. There’s a bridge there now. A better choice for Arkansas would be Y City out in the mountains near Oklahoma, about 50 miles south of Fort Smith. Source: I grew up just north of Conway and was on the last ride of the ferry about 50 years ago.


angeleaniebeanie

I like Smackover.


bitw1821

I would have gone with Bald Knob


useles-converter-bot

6 miles is the length of approximately 42239.9 'Wooden Rice Paddle Versatile Serving Spoons' laid lengthwise.

6 miles is 9.66 km

Fifty-Six, Arkansas Yes, we have a town called "Fifty-Six" [Google Map Location of Fifty-Six](https://www.google.com/maps/place/Fifty-Six,+AR+72533/@35.9654886,-92.2456601,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x87d1f43498157f1d:0xd2628062330f815d!8m2!3d35.9545022!4d-92.2285864)

doktorhladnjak

It’s literally right next to the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park which contains the most active volcano in the US


YorgenWorgen

Pretty sure Hawai’i has a town called Hell too lol.


Kraz_I

They probably picked it because it’s one of the only Hawaiian town names that are in English instead of Hawaiian.

It's in the Fillmore/Beaver region.

Hell and Christmas Michigan? And in Minnesota: Ball Club, Blue Earth, Clam Falls, Clappers, Climax, Embarrass, Good Thunder,Little Canada, Luck, Motley, Mound, Ottertail, Nimrod, Pillager, Sleepy Eye, Staples, Twig, Winner.

Don't forget Savage and Gaylord


cookedbread

Blue Earth is so normalized to me that I was surprised you included it, but I guess it is weird if you think about it


mourninglark

Not using Spread Eagle for Wisconsin is a god damn tragedy.


kr33767

I'd say Cheeseville WI is a top contender too


mourninglark

The map says oddly named, not most appropriate.


Tiberius133

Ever been to Bugscuffle, TN?


PyroDesu

Or Nowhere, TN? Honestly, there's plenty of much weirder-named places than "Smartt" (which was probably a name, amusingly oxymoronic it may be).

RoofusRoof19

Kfc after discovering Chicken, Alaska


ouisconsin_sailor

Chicken was settled by gold miners in the late 19th century. In 1902 the local post office was established, requiring a community name. Due to the prevalence of ptarmigan in the area, that name was suggested as the official name for the new community. However, the spelling could not be agreed on, and "Chicken" was used to avoid embarrassment.

Yeah idk about Handsome Eddy NY, I can think of 4 other places with stranger names. Skaneateles Poughkeepsie Ransomville And Swastika


JRCIII

Went to Volcano National Park today. The town Volcano is right by the entrance to the park/base of the Kiluea Volcano so it's not that strangely named of a town given the area it's in. After driving around basically the entire big island today and seeing all the crazy historical Hawaiian town names, Wimea, Waikoloa, Hilo, Honalo, Kona my pick is the totally out of place Kurtistown.


mudrockk

Tuckahoe and Onancock beat Fries, VA anyday

Not a town, but there’s a lake in South Carolina called Alcohol and Drug Abuse Lake

there is actually a town in georgia called “Hopeulikit”, pronounced as “hope you like it”. definitely thought that woulda won

I mean even Cumming is better than Flippen

Listen, coupon is the least oddly named town. We have Blue Ball, Intercourse, Kunkletown, Paradise, and many others.


zypr3xa

How did Chicken Bristle make it over Effingham.


thndrbrd87

Zyxzyx California


NotDelnor

It's spelled Zzyzx


sdmichael

Mormon Bar is named after a river bar, not a saloon. Why not Rough and Ready? There is also Weed, but that is named after someone.


RealBNux

I agree with you. Rough and Ready is probably the most unusual name in California for a town.


MightyMoosePoop

Egnar, Co Saw an old timer fixing his barbed wire fence by the highway in Egnar which has population less than 100 at the time. I pulled over and asked what the name meant and he gave this huge smile like he had been waiting his whole life to answer that question. “It’s ‘Range’ spelled backwards!”

Thought “Truth or Consequences” would be the New Mexico pick but Pie Town is equally odd.


vk1sl1ng

Of course there’s a town called Waterproof, LA!


Alpha_Centauri_5932

Truth or Consequences should have been for New Mexico


bteel408

I’d say naming a town ‘Jackpot’ in Nevada isn’t ‘oddly named’ at all. I’m sure they could’ve found something better


Yeeboi32

I live in missouri and am from a town called "cowgill" and think that is much weirder then "Frankenstein"


freshairequalsducks

Yes, but we have a town named Dildo in Canada. And its right down the road from Spread Eagle and Come By Chance.

backupKDC6794

I always thought Little Compton was named funnier than Woonsocket. There's actually a few more weirdly named towns here in RI


Tommy_Wisseau_burner

Also I’m pretty sure Woonsocket is Native American. If we’re going by that there’s a lot weirder Native American named towns in the US lol


isaberre

lol right like Little Compton is funny since it's so wealthy and rural and so opposite the stereotype of the other Compton... meanwhile Woonsocket over here just being a Native American name minding its damn business


proudly_disengaged

Truth or Consequences, NM is better than Pie Town imo

**[IXL, Oklahoma](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IXL,_Oklahoma)** >IXL (or I.X.L.) is an historical freedmen's town in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, United States. While founded perhaps as early as 1900, it was only incorporated in 2001 and had an estimated population of 59 in 2007. The 2010 census listed the population at 51.
