We have a Dr. F. Colon at our hospital.  And yes, you guessed it, he does the colonoscopies.

I hate that I could not contribute Knockemstiff, Oh, but there is Gnawbome and Bean Blossom, In. We also have a cyropractor in town called Dr. Krush.

In the south-west of France, not too far from where I live, there is a town named Condom, it even has a famous cathedral.

Sarladiase - you do understand the vision your post has now put in my head via the name of the town and a phallic like building in the center of it, right? Shame on you ;)

PS - good to see you again! Hope your trip was great!

javal1-

  I have to admit that I never expected to see the word: "phallic" on this message board. But it does inspire me to make a contribution to the: "Favorite Place Names" thread.

LOL - and I'll bet you Sarladaise, the above poster, has been to that town. Never run into someone who is quite the world traveller as her.

Texas:  That is hilarious!  I love the "frequently stolen sign" to the F**king town.

Doc, I think Susansweet beat you to that one.  But here's another one from Pennsylvania.  In my high school days, there was a hamburger joint called Super Burger.  That name didn't last long.  Some kids removed the B and R from Burger.  The sign then read Super Urge in large letters on the side of the building for years.

And let's not forget that very close to Intercourse  is Blue Balls. And that just speaks volumes, doesn't it?

Just south of where we lived in Tennessee was Bell Buckle. That name always struck me as funny...cute, even quaint, little town right by the railroad tracks. Very picturesque.  There is also Lick Skillet, TN. and a Bumpus Mills, TN.

Javal, I lused to live in the Philippines. That town was near the former US Navy base at Olongapo (Subic Naval Base). The name of the town has been officially changed to the less distinctive and easily forgettable Sasmuan.

This is just a little off topic but here goes:

This spring on tour in Oklahoma, we stopped at a large gas station/convenience store along the interstate.  In the NO PARKING ZONE in front of the store was a sign which read: The Last Car Parked Here Is Still Missing!

Near Honey Springs Battlefield, was a hand painted sign on a sheet of plywood next to the road that read: Road Hunters Will Be Shot!

Don't ya just love Oklahoma?!  I love a state with a no B.S. attitude!

Izzy,

Don't forget New Hampshire: Live Free or Die!

To return to the theme: I live about 30 miles from a small town called Climax. And, closer to home, we have Horneytown (not to be confused with Swingtown).

Bird-in-Hand, Pa., certainly leaves a lot to the imagination.

And, I went to college with a girl named April Schauer.
