Introduction:You're driving along, when you see a sign for one of these funny town names. Be careful driving while you're laughing!
Located near Blue Ball and Paradise,neighboring towns in Lancaster County, PA, Intercourse is pretty famous, and well liked. This village just had to make it onto a top five funny town names list. It is in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch countryside, where the Amish hang out on their beautiful farms, and enjoy Intercourse often.
Supposedly, this town is shaped just like a monkey's eyebrow, thus the name. somebody was standing on the hill nearby, looked down at the town, noted the shape, and named the burg. Crazy, but everybody loves monkeys, so why not? That's number two on the funny town names list.
Number three on the funny town names list is also named after an animal. Chickens are inherently funny. After all, why did the chicken cross the road? It seems most of the Chickens do cross the road, away from Chicken, Alaska, as the census counted only 7 inhabitants in 2010.
Evidently, this little podunk arose because of two ding dongs, Burt and Zulis Bell. The Bell brothers had a sign for their store that had a picture of two ringing bells that said, "Ding Dong!" Nice onomatopoeia, guys. You made it to the number four spot of the the funny towns list.
Really? I mean, really? How silly is this one! The smart people there know just how funny their town name is, so they have a festival every year, called "Toad Suck Daze." It raises money for scholarships. I'm sure there are lots of t-shirts sold with the town name emblazoned across the chest. By the way, there is evidently no connection between the funny town name of Toad Suck, and the urban legend that if you lick a toad, it has hallucinogenic effects.
