      I can't believe one of my favorites didn't make that list..... Manassas, Virginia. Smile
        I still get a chuckle every time I see Intercouse, PA


        Lazy idiot

          I grew up near Defiance and Pandora, and never thought of them as weird until now. Weird.

          Tick tock

            Drove by Virginville on the way to the race last Sunday.

            Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson


            Imminent Catastrophe

              I spent my summers in Truth or Consequences. There's also Beeville, TX

              I've got a fever...

                There's a little town in Michigan just off of I-94 called Climax. Lot's of amusing jokes/sounds to be made on the road trip to Chicago when you are approaching Climax, passing through Climax, and during the post-Climax phase of the trip. Big grin They have a race in Hell, MI, and the shirts say "I ran through Hell." I guess you could have a pretty cool shirt from Climax, MI, if they ever decide to have a road race. Clowning around

                On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

                  On the way to college I would pass though Bangs, OH, which means you pass a sign name that just says "Bangs"


                  madness baby

                    There's also Whynot, Mississippi and Egypt, MS. You've already got Hot Coffee, MS -my favorite! And my brother lives in Soddy Daisy, TN.

                      Michigan is the king of that kind of stuff. Jeff, I'm sure you know about this one too... Just after you pass Detroit on I-75, there's a town called Troy, MI. One of the main exits for that town is Exit 69, Big Beaver Road. I'm 100% not joking. The sign would always turn up missing until the powers that be got smart and bolted the hell out of that sucker and put it out of reach.

                        Yeah, Exit 69 Big Beaver Rd is legendary in SE Michigan. Consisdering that freeway exit numbers in Michigan correspond to mile markers (rather than purely sequential exit numbers) I've always thought that it was a major feat of engineering on someone's part to get I-75 to line up so perfectly to form that famous exit. Not a coincidence. Wink

                          Not a town name, but I get to drive by this in a few weeks: It's in WI, between Milwaukee and Chi-town. Big grin k

                            I hope there's a convenience store near the rec area, fully stocked with chips, cheetos, and other munchies. Wink
