    This should be fun. There are so many places, villages, towns and even countries whose names could fit in this thread. But DO NOT just open an atlas and send in all the towns of Africa or China. Be more selective! I will begin with one nearer to home whose name I love the way it rolls off my tongue.


    Luna Lovegood

    Squankum –

    It’s the name of a street in New Jersey which in English means “the place where evil spirits dwell”


    Kosciuszko bridge.



    Schenectady NY. It also has a cool zip code. ^_^

    🍫Syag Lchochma

    Boca Raton – The Mouth of the Mouse!

    not a mod

    Here is a very funny article: It all started in Mars, California. The way everyone stared at me made me feel as if I were from a different planet. After a good look at my reflection at Monkey’s Eyebrow, Kentucky, I saw why. I put on hold my vacation to Prettyboy, Maryland-a trim was in order. But Where? Tater Peeler, Tennessee, it seemed was the logical spot. I was wrong. The barbers in Scissors, Texas, made a valiant effort to save my do, but it was too late: I was left down in the dumps in Bald Head, Maine. Comfort food was called for, and i found some in Cookietown, Oklahoma. After a month of indulgence, people wondered aloud if I were from Chuncky, Mississippi. The fat jokes got to me, so I moved to where they would never call me that- Big Bone, Kentucky. it was pure fantasyland. During the day I swam in Ham Lake, Minnesota; at night I dreamd I was in King Arthur Court, Tennessee. All was fine as long as I got home by midnight in Cinderella, West Virginia, and didn’t tell anyone about seeing Unicorn, Pennsylvania. Had i let the slip out, they’d surely have sent me straight to Looneyville, Texas. (I’m skipping some lines over here). They insisted I take my jokes and drive down to Jot ‘Em Down, Texas.


    Look on the Map neat Lancaster, PA


    Hell, Michigan — This is a real town, though not the way most people would think of it. I’ve know about this town for about 20 years and I’ve joked about the hospital in Hell, the post office of Hell, etc…
