Crazynametown, U.S.A.

My wife and I enjoyed a honeymoon cruise to Jamaica and what turned out the be the most beautiful place I have ever seen, the Cayman Islands. On the island, we stopped in Hell, got a drink, and sent some cool post cards to our families. It was hot in Hell that day. Hell, Grand Cayman BWI made we wonder whether we had any towns or cities in the U.S. that are as interesting. We don’t consider Smitty City to be one of these places, but here are a few that we dug up.

  1. Recently there was an article in the Spartanburg paper about the community of Sugar Tit, SC. Evidently there was a grocery store where all the farmers went to talk after a hard day of farming. The wives of the farmers referred to the grocery store (and surrounding community) as Sugar Tit because that’s where the men went to get their talking needs met (like a baby has it’s crying needs met by a sugar tit, a cloth folded over some sugar that was placed in babies mouths like a pacifier to make them happy).

  2. dave,

    I had to edit the list a little because i didn’t want to offend anybody…believe it or not…i remember taking out Sugar Tit, SC.

  3. I’ve just returned from a trip home to England, and every time I am there I think I should start recording some of their town and village names. Unfortunately I never remember!!

  4. thanks for your comment, not neat

  5. Personal favorites not on your list: Stinking Creek in TN, and Big Bone Lick (that’s in KY, right?)

    I think if it’s written on a map, it shouldn’t offend anybody. 🙂

  6. Surfed upon your blog. Found the strange town names interesting. I did notice, however, that Delaware is not on the list. Now, I know its a small state, but there’s gotta be at least one strange-named town. How about Hockessian?? Also, what happened to Georgia & Hawaii??
