Great Minds Think A Like

Thanks to Moxie had noted in comments the other day that I had posted almost the same thing as she did. All I can say is great minds think alike.
I can't believe they didn't mention anymore crazy names. I know most of them aren't spooky but there are surely more than 10...
I know of a few here in our great state of Missouri. I have actually been through them. Like Needmore,MO and Halfway,MO. Yah, I know Halfway but take it a step further. In this town there is Halfway High *school*, and there is Halfway Baptist *church*, and the well renown Halfway Trading *post*. Oh yah, I used to play against the Halfway Softball team. Ya know I could go on forever with is but I will stop. :)
Okay, these names aren't as bad as these poor town name from around the world. I found these towns from Funny Place Names who found them from Drivl.com actually found a list of the 22 Worst Place Names in the World including:

Twatt, Scotland
Muff, Ireland
Titty Hill, England
Wetwang, England
Bald Knob, Arkansas,
Whiskey Dick Mountain, Washington
Hell, Michigan
Toad Suck, Arkansas
Dissapointment, Kentucky
Fucking, Austria

...and last but not least, this tongue-twisting town title:

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, New Zealand.

Getting Into the Spirit

It's been awhile since I posted but I have been living the wonderful Wal-Martian life. I have really been trying to find something to post that would get into the October hallowennie spirit. TODAY, I found something just for the occasion. Places in the USA that have Spooky Halloween names that should be visited. There is a town in our lovely state of Missouri called Frankenstein. Of course read the link it is insightful. Now I am going back and trying to find something to terrify the kidlets for the celebrating the day of the dead.
