Betcha also din know that there be three rivers in Virginia : the Mata, the Po, and the Ni. They join up together to form the Mataponi, which when it flows together with the Pamunkey becomes the York over to West Point, near Williamsburg.

yeah, roadfix, but here's some others our dear state has....

Avocado (kitchenelf, shouldn't I move there???)

Bummerville (dude!)

Cabbage Patch (so that's where all those nasty little dolls came from!)

Cool (I've been there...it's not.)

Dunmovin (I guess they were!)

Forks of Salmon (isn't that on a menu?)

Hallelujah Junction (but does it come with it's own choir?)

Hells Kitchen (does Gordon know about this place?)

Hooker (ummmmm, okay.......)

Keg (no doubt there's a college there)

Klondike (so if you opened a watering hole there, would you call it a "Klondike bar"?)

Scarface (!)

Secret Town (I tried to go, but I couldn't find it)

Wimp (oh that's just sad.)

(and a bunch I couldn't print here!)

I thought South Carolina had some weird ones, but after reading some of these, they sound downright normal! We have:

Due West
Lake Secession
Ninety Six
Travelers Rest
