There's a town in Missouri, USA, called Knob Lick.

Top that.

Or is this your hobby :lol:


My favorite town is leighton buzzard in England we went through when we were there.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

Hi Mick! Thanks for joining up and helping me not be the latest new guy to sign up! I will admit though that our trade experience is quite different, but I will be grateful for the exchange and input regardless

Okay, I was good and ready to cry, "Not funny!", but I have to admit, that's a little bit funny. :lol:

There's also Toad Suck, Arkansas, and Nameless, Tennessee.

Toad Suck is a bit of a mystery, but Nameless has a good story. Seems the postal service needed to build a post office there, so the little community needed a name. The town meeting turned into a big argument, until one old man stood up and said, "This place has always been nameless. Let's keep it that way."

Peculiar, Missouri has a postal origin, as well. Every name they submitted was already taken in the state, so in frustration, the mayor wrote to the postal commission, saying, "Just give us some peculiar name..." and they did just that.
