Subby needs to get out more.  There is a Fisty KY, which is right next to Happy and down the road from Dwarf.  Goochland doesn't even rise to a contender.

I missed the turnoff, went past it, and wherever I ended up smelled like shiat.

Gooch sounds like it could be an old-school mob nickname.

What was he in for? Death by virus is going to be a pretty farking harsh sentence for most prisoners.

I knew a Dr. Gooch once. He was one of the people who did the most to save the whooping crane from extinction. Smoked like a smokestack, saved the Government a fortune in travel costs by staying with friends and family whenever he travelled.

Is Goochland named for a family of that name? You betcha. I see the name of the place all the time while doing genealogy, but have precious free Gooch family members to back me up, though.

My favorite out of the way place was Double Anal Penetration, Utah. A little close but friendly.

There's about a two in three chance it was a non-violent drug possession charge designed to make the owners of private prisons and prison supply companies richer and to give the FBI under that racist bigoted old Queen, J. Edgar Hoover more powerful despite the 19th Amendment.

Goochland is right between Anusland and Scrotumland. It taint a nice place to visit.

The hamlet of Lost, Scotland, has the only name sign welded to the pole in the UK. Fun fact from one of my books of factoids. I've got a million of them.

Kind of appropriate they named a prison after Agnes.

The 49-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, was serving a nine-year sentence for manufacturing methamphetamine and was expected to be released sometime in 2023, according to a state Department of Corrections press release.

In Michigan we have Hell, so Goochland isn't crazy.

However, I think they should swap the names around between Hell and Grand Rapids. It's not that there are any rapids around where Hell is situation, but that Grand Rapids is owned by the DeVos and Van Andel families, and is therefore as close to Hell as you can get if you're not a conservative Calvinist-style Christian who worships Mammon and looks down on everyone else.

To me, the decade I spent in Grand Rapids was more Hell than the week I spent in Hell.

Where is that in relation to Monkey's Eyebrow or Big Bone Lick?

Why didn't you tell me it was named after "The Gooch", as he was called back in the colonial days.

Wait'll Subby hears about the town of Short Pump and Lickinghole Creek Brewery.

Intercourse, Pa, is a funnier place name than Goochland.


\also, the city of Intercourse, Pa, is not one large red light district, surprisingly enough.

Ironically, it's famous for being the town that nobody ever heard of.

An acquaintance of mine has that surname. He's somewhat... sensitive about it.
