More funny town names

Last year when Bing Travel published a slide show featuring places with funny names, we had no idea the volume of responses we’d get from readers who wanted to share their favorite belly-busting town names. Our blog at the time got more than 750 comments (read them here), and at Bing Travel we had a great time reading through them all. In fact, we got so inspired by all the new towns readers introduced us to that we thought it was high time to bring you a new slide show featuring More Funny Town Names. We used some of the ideas you provided (like Cut and Shoot, Texas) and added some of our own (Anyone been to Tightwad, Mo.?). There are also a couple more entries in the “Hell” category, a town name that never fails to elicit a giggle.

Got more favorites that didn’t make the cut? Add a comment here and maybe we’ll pick it up for use in next year’s edition.

Happy Travels!
