Another two I've passed through in Texas are Uncertain and Point Blank.
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.
I have a friend that is named Possum. People that don't know him call him Tommy.
I went through Oklahoma today. It was ok.
There's also Idiotville, OR
Here in Canada we have some great ones!!! Dildo,Nfld. Conception Bay,Tramping Lake,Keg River.... those are just some!

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
I was told a story that an Ihop restaurant was located on Cox st. The phone was answered
"Ihop on cox"!
A couple of place names in the UK, County Durham to be precise that always amused me as a kids are
There is a town not too far from me called Pleasureville
I’ve just come across old Diesel Engine museum at a brilliantly named Prickwillow
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).
Howie-in-the-Hills, Florida ok so what is Howie doing in the hills? Besides everybody knows that there are no hills in Florida. Only beaches and mickey mouse.
Zephyrhills, Florida. What is a zephyr?
Boinks, Louisiana. Hmmm, what could they be doing there?
And for those who care to participate in illegal activities there is Bong Recreation Area in Illinois near Chicago
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.
THe province I live in(Saskatchewan Canada) has several funny names
Oh, I so want to live there!!
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.
Separate names with a comma.
