I don't know how big that county is, but if they changed our counties name it would cost millions of dollars. They'd have to change signs, repaint all the cars, stationary, and many other things. I'd be pissed because I'd have to pay for it.

It may work, butt who nose?

Either way, they'll still be living in Georgia.

I wish that the Captain had been named "Seymore".
2003-09-11 10:45:03 AM  
guess he was tired of being the butt of people's jokes
2003-09-11 10:45:05 AM  
What an ass.
2003-09-11 10:48:15 AM  
I don't get it.

You think that's bad? You should see some on the places in England:

Brown Willey (Cornwall)

Fingeringhoe (Essex... Near me in fact!)


...and the unforgettable Bigcockup and Littlecockup...

Quit Whining... Australia has a place called Mt. Buggery.

I was just in Intercourse, PA last month (No. Didn't have intercourse. =( ). And if you stay in Intercourse for too long, you can always go to Blue Ball.

If he's tired of the jokes about his county's name, why doesn't he just tell people the name of the CITY he's from. When i hear about a DJ, his county isn't all th important to me.

From reading the article, the citizens are not necessarily upset with changing the name from "Butts County"; their issue is the DJ's proposed new name of "Crap Factory County."

I live near (but not in) Butts County. Georgia's death row is in Butts County. If you've ever driven down Highway 75 to Florida, you have passed through glorious, glamorous Butts County and probably never even knew it.

After having traveled through Butts County a number of times, I must say that the county name is stunningly fitting.

There is a Big Bone Lick state park near Cincinnati in Kentucky...

"Hey, is there a Butz here? Seymour Butz? Hey, everybody, I wanna Seymour Butz!

Oh, wait a minute...

Listen, you little scum-sucking pus-bucket! When I get my hands on you, I'm gonna put out your eyeballs with a corkscrew!"
2003-09-11 11:07:57 AM  
Best. Headline. Ever.
2003-09-11 11:10:43 AM  
I hear Butts is big.
2003-09-11 11:11:19 AM  
Nowhere has place names like Newfoundland:

Ha Ha Bay
Nancy Oh
Famish Gut
Bacon Cove
Cat Gut
Herring Neck
Sitdown Pond
Harbour Harbour

Georgia also has a Glascock County (hee hee, you said "cock") and Ben Hill (not to be confused with BENNY Hill) County.
2003-09-11 11:22:34 AM  
I live 20 miles north of Atlanta in ... wait for it......

Cumming, GA.

Supposidly we have the most photographed Water Tower in Georgia.

No HTML skills, but here is the link to the "official" city website.

The wonderful city of Cumming.

"It's so embarrassing to tell people you're from Butts County," said mechanic Melinda Sealey. "You don't even know."

Insert your own redneck joke about this one on it's own merits...

DJ from BUTTS County Georgia tires of ENDless CRACKS about county name, being a little BEHIND the times, proposes change. Citizens start "Save our BUTTS" campaign, nearly run DJ out on his ASS.

That headline was so punny that it cracked me up.
2003-09-11 11:31:49 AM  
"Well, I was born in Queens, went to Ball state, then made the move to Intercourse, Pennsylvania....Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to my vacation at lake Titicaca. Let's see you make a joke out of that, Mr. Smart guy!"
2003-09-11 11:37:24 AM  
Cheeky headline.
2003-09-11 11:40:08 AM  
Theburner - Seriously? You live in Cumming?

Pray tell, can you give me some information on their police? Specifically, what color uniforms they wear and what shape their badge is?

I'm thinkin' incredible halloween costume...
2003-09-11 11:41:21 AM  
And, Georgia has the Chattahooche River! Not just your average hoochie, but a CHATtahooche!

OK, sorry, I was reaching....

Props to the headline. Elegant, yet subtle.
2003-09-11 11:49:45 AM  
Next thing ya know, someone will try to change the state flag!
2003-09-11 11:52:45 AM  

This is even BETTER than I ever thought. Never seen an office up close.... Again, sorry for not linking, but YOU HAVE TO SEE THE POLICE CREST..

3rd picture down.... Cumming Police.. ROFL.
2003-09-11 12:00:12 PM  
Do I smell a controversy?
2003-09-11 12:07:03 PM  
Yeah - I know. Ever since a friend sho collects police patches gave me one of those for Cumming, I've been wanting to do that costume. I've been looking all over the 'net for a pic of a Cumming cop <insert vulgarity here>, but can't find a single one. Well - not one of a Cumming, GA police officer.


Please find one and tell me? PLEEEEEESE? I'm too lazy to drive all the way there from Greenville. But I will if I must. Does Cumming have a Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts or Waffle House?
2003-09-11 12:13:39 PM  

Thanks, I was looking for that...
2003-09-11 12:29:22 PM  
Couldn't find anything on the net for ya, sorry about that. Just the patch..

We have a BUNCH of Waffle Houses, no Dunkin and Krispy Kreme you have to buy at Publix.
2003-09-11 12:34:43 PM  
LOL, Theburner - No, silly, I meant look around for a real live one a report back. But I can go down there next time I make a run to Atlanta.

No donuts? I guess the only cop hangout would be the Waffle House, then, huh?

my bad. he really does have a smoking problem, though.
2003-09-11 12:58:19 PM  
HAHA.. You know how it is, when you try and find a cop there just aren't any! Will keep an eye out for ya if I do manage to see one.
Not a bad run for ya, couple hours. Just get off 85 by the Mall of GA on Highway 20. 20 will take you right downtown Cumming!
I have seen more Cumming Cops at the Dairy Queen than anywhere. Although, DQ is right across the street from the Cumming Cop Headquarters.. CUmming cop....
2003-09-11 01:13:09 PM  
Add Balsac, Alberta to the list. (Ball Sack, get it?) So this guy was in the hospital talking to guys on the ward. One guy is from Toefield, AB. He is having his toe amputated. Another guy is from Eyebrow, Sask. He's having his eyebrows removed. Our guy starts to sweat. "I hope they don't get confused when I go on the operating table." Why? He's from Balsac!!!
2003-09-11 01:16:41 PM  
I was always partial to the original, the Butte Pirates.
2003-09-11 01:37:11 PM  
OK - will make my Mall of Georgia World Market run tomorrow (have the day off) and will try to get to the Cumming Dairy Queen.

Good. God. I feel like this should be in the "women like porn, too" thread.

Any Cumming farkers wanna have a quickie lunch? ;)
2003-09-11 01:45:49 PM  
just out of Crescent City, Ca. is a place called Fort Dick.
probably appropriate 'cause it's about a quarter mile from
Pelican bay state prison...
2003-09-11 02:11:08 PM  
I'll bet you were, Goodfella.
