I remember several years ago driving through the small Arkansas town of Toad Suck.  Toad Suck.... Who? Why?  But I've since come to find out that's not even the oddest of odd town names.  Slickpoo, Idaho... Nimrod, Minnesota... Hot Coffee, Mississippi... Blue Ball, Pennsylvania... but I think one of my favorites... Bugtussle, Kentucky.  Thats just fun to say... Bugtussle...
