Interesting Places To Pass Through

Motorists often have to pass through small towns while traveling on the back highways of America.  However, sometimes they get to pass through places with amusing names like these. Enjoy! I'm not making any serious point with this. Heaven forbid!  It's good to travel light and enjoy the trip!

An unincorporated town in Arkansas where people like peanuts.

This city in Oklahoma may be honoring an unnamed strumpet.
Kentucky, South Dakota, and Missouri also have Hookers.
Honoring an odd Missourian.
Some people persist in riding it in Alaska.

Possums know better than to mosey in Kentucky.

Unfortunately, there is no Two-in-Bush in Pennsylvania.

A small town in Georgia possibly named after a dance.
An actual unincorporated place in Oregon; avert your eyes!
This is in North Carolina
Waterproof is in Louisiana and isn't Waterproof!

Definitely a place in Texas to be careful visiting.
Some Nebraska towns are like that.
A stingy Missourian is honored here.
Honoring the virgins of Pennsylvania.

I've not heard of Cut & Shoot in Texas, but there are some strange names and some very odd pronunciations of names by the "locals"

I did not know about the hookers in Missouri. This may require some more investigation.

When I lived in Bossier City, Louisiana, many years ago, we used to drive along I-20 to Dallas, passing a town called "Forney." I had a fantasy about retiring to that town and starting a business to supply food and drink to parties. I would have called it "Forney Caterers." Oh, well ...

I saw a realty ad in our paper for a house on Stinking Creek. I think that would be a deterrent, ha ha.

We have a Tightwad Ave in our little dot on the map..I've always wondered who thought that one up and why. I imagine the stories behind these names could be quite interesting.
