You forgot Blue Ball, just down the road from these (actually, 15ish miles northeast, on a different road). Blue Ball and Bird in Hand are named for the taverns they grew up around. Intercourse is named for an important crossroads in colonial times, but was formerly named Cross Keys, also for the tavern.

For generations, newlyweds have had their pictures taken under the sign that says, "Welcome to Intercourse." :shock:

And of course, there's the old joke, "If you can't get to Intercourse, you might experience Blue Ball unless you take your Bird in Hand..."

Sooo....

Welcome, Mick! :lol:

Don't think we're not serious about welding and welding questions. Just realize that's the ONLY thing we're serious about.
