Arklatex Towns with Funny or Weird Names
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...
Every state across our great nation has it's share of small towns with funny, odd, or just downright hilarious names. But we can have fun just keeping it semi-local. Here are some of our favorites not too far from where we call home.
A lot of these most of us have heard our whole lives, so they might not sound particularly funny to us... but try to look at them as someone 'not from around here'
Old Dime Box (haha!)
Cut & Shoot
Gun Barrel City (actually stayed there one weekend in an AirBnB on the lake and had a great time)
(and my favorite) Martindale
The list could continue, but let's move on
I think if you had a contest, Arkansas might win with some of the funniest and oddest names
The aforementioned Toad Suck
War Eagle (Auburn grad name this town?)
and it was even a TV show starring Burt Reynolds... Evening Shade
