Default funny named towns

I am an over the road truck driver and I find it absolutely facinating all the different names all over the United States. Since we are from all over the the world we can have posts from all corners of the planet. Post names of funny or unusual names of cities, rivers, parks whatever. I will start with some of my favorite.
Hollering Woman creek in Texas
Big Bone Lick park Kentucky
Hungry Mother park Virginia
Wimauma Florida named by a railroad developer for his 3 daughters Wilma Maude and Mary
Squirrel Level road Virginia. I can imagine it now...Hey Bubba..did you level that trailer when you put it in? Scratchin his head, Cletus replies... Well...it's squirrel level.,,,

Not all that funny of a name, but this amused me.

There is a speck of a town we drive through periodically called Numogate. My wife and I would continually discuss how the name should be pronounced, and concluded it really depended on what language it came from. (the obvious English pronunciation would be NEW-moe-gate, but it didn’t exactly look English in derivation, and there are languages where it would be something like nuh-MOH-gat-TAY). Which led us to speculate where the name could have come from—named after some obscure place in England, some lesser known figure from ancient greek history, an English spelling of some name in India….

Eventually we had to look it up. It turned out that during the settlement of Montague Township, of which it is part, the original village was, creatively, called Montague. When there was enough settlement to set up a second post office, the new post master had to come up with a name for the place….and he just rearranged the letters of Montague to get Numogate.

In other words, we over-thought that one by a wee bit

So you live in Goshen, or Williamsburg? I used to go to the Cummington Fair when I lived in Western Mass. Very pretty area, with a popular nude bathing spot as I recall.

As for towns, I want to move to Big Knockerstown in England, or Nipple, Utah.

The best part is you don't have to slow down when driving through Numogate, it's like they're saying "don't bother, nothing to see here..." (They'd be right too...)

Most people are familiar with the town that the Kennedys made famous. Kennebunkport Maine. Did you know that it is right next to Kennybunk Maine?

Oh, if we're talking streets...

Moose Creek*, Alaska, has the following:
Da Niece St.
Da Nephew St.
Go Thatta Way

I've driven on all of them.


*Which is, not surprisingly, is named after Moose Creek (a tributary of the Tanana River) which winds around and through the town of 746 people. You can probably guess where the waterway got its name.
It's about 25 miles east-southeast of Fairbanks, AK.

Neither Goshen or Williamsburg, but if you travel Rt. 9, thru Williamsburg, Goshen and Cummington, mine is the next town!

I LOVE THE CUMMINGTON FAIR!!!!!! I missed it this year, but I usually go every year. Its such an awesome fair!! And I have never been to the infamous nude bathing spot, since Ive always heard stories of gay butt sex in the woods.

Default Arkansas' Contribution

We have some famous Arkansas towns and locations. I guess the most popular is Toad Suck. This has spawned Toad Suck Park, Toad Suck Festival, Miss Toad Suck, and all kinds of wearable art.

2nd runners up are Possum* Trot and Possum* Grape.

*(For ya'll not familiar with possums, the official name of such as beast is opossum.)

We also have some towns that have a name on the highway and there is no town there. The residents have all moved on or passed away. No one came to take their places.
