I lived in Cockfosters, London for about year. Every single day on the tube there would be someone chuckling when it would be announced that "This train is headed to Cockfosters" lol!

I guess it didn't help much that Cockfosters used to be in Middlesex either lol

Michigan has Hell and Paradise.

Most people in Michigan live south of Florida (a town in the Upper Peninsula).

For a town name that just sounds funny, there's Germfask (the eight families who settled it took the last name initials and arranged them into something that could be pronounced.)

But the winner is far from Michigan. It's a town in Austria. Its name rhymes with "Booking", but it's spelled F**king (You can figure that out).

California has a few odd ones with a connection to fuel.

Coalinga -- it was a refueling stop for coal-fired locomotives: Coaling A.

El Segundo -- (in Spanish, "The Second"). The home of Standard Oil's second refinery (they're now Chevron Oil) -- the first was in Richmond, CA.

Sheboygan Michigan maybe named after a transvestite that changed her mind?

Chicken Fight road Atoka Oklahoma maybe because Michael Vick took dogfight road?

Effingham Illinois used to be called F**kingham but people wanted it less offensive.

I don't know these are guesses but all real places.

There is an Ofallon in Illinois and an Ofallon in Missouri about 50 miles apart.

I went through Mexico today. I thought it was south of Texas but it is in Missouri.

Yeah, but Saskatchewan also has what I always thought was the cutest name for a town - Willow Bunch.

The other day I passed Suitland Parkway in Maryland near DC. I haven't had a chance to Google it, but is there an amusement park on that road?
"Hey kids this summer we are going to Suitland! "
For the wild and crazy rides for their safety each rider will be issued a replica of Donald Trumps helmet hair.
For the romantic couple we invite you to take a trip on loafers lane.
"Who wants to take a ride on Daddys Zipper! "
At Suitland we are always hiring. In no time at all you will be fully vested.
Everybody has a good time at Suitland! Anyone who complains leaves with a free Columbian necktie.

There's a village called Lower Swell in The Costwolds. Always makes me chuckle. Also The Slaughters (Upper and Lower Slaughter, respectively), not so much funny-sounding as...well, a bit murder-y?

Some friends of mine once went to visit the town of Broom in Warwickshire, and tried to buy a broom to take a picture with by the sign. Astoundingly enough they couldn't find one. I also know a guy who lived on Crotch Crescent, in Oxford, while at Uni.
