I went to Pussy Creek, Ohio once. Talk about false advertising. Angry

Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, which sounds cool when you first think about it, got it's name from the radio game show, when the Truth or Consequences host said he would do a program from the first town that renamed itself after the show. That's how fucking lame this town is.

It was originally called 'Hot Springs,' creatively enough, because it had hot springs.

Apparently, in Welsh it has a meaning: "St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave". But it's just a gimmick, originally the village was called Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll, they just kept adding bits in order to make the longest place-name record.

They failed to note that Intercourse is near Blue Ball. And both are near Bird-In-Hand.

#50 Fucking (Austria) (Where Fuckers are from)

The funny thing is that their street sign was stolen quite frequently. In fact most of the villages budget went into replacing the signs. Nowadays they secured the sign, so it isn't possible to steal it anymore.


#41 Truth Or Consequences (New Mexico, USA)

Say what you want, but that is just a badass name for a city^^.

I visit Boring, Oregon fairly often. For a town of 90,000, it's too large to have a name like that.

I'm not sure if there's a separate town/city, but Big Bone Lick is a state park here in Kentucky; not far from where I went to Elementary and High School.

Not far from here there's Jaywick - might not sound funny, but just imagine a small English seaside town that closely resembles downtown Baghdad.

And there's Coggeshall, which even has it's own expression - the Coggeshall Job - the type of job you get on your first day when they send you down to stores for a long stand or left handed screwdriver or some tartan paint.

And there's a little place in the backstreets of Witham called Cutthroat Lane. I'd like to live there, but they haven't put any houses on there (yet).

I'm getting to that stage in life where I want to find a nice little place, settle down and spend my declining days on my porch, shitting in my hand and throwing it at passing cars. Is that too much to ask?
