Why didn't I think of that? (I'm chocking, laughing so hard!) What about the violin guy from Genoa playing his Muse, hoping for Prosperity to settle his Homestead, next to Howey in the Hills, who thinks it's Paradise?

Me bad.

My son was looking on the site where I found the state cities and he was in hysterics over a few. Can't remember the states but there was Paint Lick and Toad Suck.
why oh why???

another had Ware. Doesn't sound odd till you get the conversation,
"Where are you from?"
"That's right, ware"
(......and who's on first....)

From living in that particular state and just from learning...and a map sometimes comes in handy!

There's a lot of famous place names in Texas like Moscow, Palestine, Athens, Egypt, Paris.... I thought Sugarland and Tiki Island were funny names until I read all of ya'lls. My uncle has a ranch in Bigfoot.
