I wish I lived in Intercourse

There are plenty of strange town names in the good ol’ US. Some, intentionally so. Most, unintentionally. Since our Pingers are spread out all over the United States, I bet you guys live near some of these oddly named cities and towns. So, let’s hear ’em.

I suspect jk is going to win.

And even though I’m starting this topic, I don’t have any to contribute. There aren’t any strange ones in the immediate vicinity. But at least I can look at this list and dream of living near Hornytown, North Carolina. What? It’s an urban legend? Damn.

Here in Queensland, Australia, we have the towns of:

“Gunpowder”
“Comet”
“Rocket”
“Dingo”

And in New South Wales, Australia, there is the town of “Orange”.

And in northern England, near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, there is a town called “Pity-me” and another one called “No Place”

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
