/Y-e-e-h-a-w........

I've been through Cut and Shoot.

Saw a sign for "pick your own blueberries - $1.25 lb". Picked 17 lbs in a 5 gallon bucket. When I went to check out, the old man said "Stick out your tongue. That'll be an extra $0.25."  I, of course, had eaten my fair share while I was picking and my blue tongue had given me away.


Ha!

My mom used to tell us kids, if she suspected us of dishonesty, "If you're lying, your tongue will turn blue.  Let me see your tongue."  Of course, if we were lying, we'd refuse.

You should have seen the look on her face the day when I had been sucking on a blue lollipop.

The town of F***ing in Austria which eventually had to change its name to Fugging because the sign got stolen so many times, and because were, erm, fugging in front of it while having their picture taken.  The locals gave up in the end and renamed the town.

Not stupidest, per se, but I'm guessing that Eromanga in Queensland has a few disappointed weab visitors... :)

/ Borrowing from Pratchett, an honourable mention goes to all the small villages named things like "What?", "It's Just A Village, I Don't Know", and "Your Finger You Fool"

Speaking of Pratchett, he named a village on the disc "Bad Ass".  Because a certain donkey misbehaved, allegedly.

scottydoesntknow: ArkPanda: Arkansas has plenty, but we'll start with Toad Suck.

Not Booger Hollow?

/I saw the 2-story outhouse there


I grew up about 20 miles from there.  Yellville was in our district.  I never thought it was a stupid name until I moved away and others pointed it out.

South Carolina has "Round-O" and "Sugar Tit". I've never visisted Round-O, but I can report Sugar Tit was disappointing.
North Carolina has "Fuquay Varina".

Which doesn't grow as much corn as you'd think.

Billy Liar: Lochsteppe: I used to live in Normal, Illinois.

It was normal. Yes, very normal. Everything was just fine there. No further questions!

Was there a teachers' college there?


Yes, Illinois State got its start as a normal school back in the 1800s.

I just remembered Soddy-Daisy, TN.  Formed from the merger of two towns, Soddy and Daisy.

Not far from here is Durham Lead.

Always entertaining listening to people trying to pronounce it (Durrum Leed), and then asking Why?

Hint: gold...
