    This isn't along the same theme, but I was always angered by Townville, SC.

    I mean, really... who were the creative geniuses involved in the name there? I guess Townvillecityburg was too long to paint on the water tower.

    Townville... there's a place I want to do generic things in a nondescript manner!

    Sadly, this is from a hoax picture that still gets spread around the Internet. There is no such place. The Arkansas Highway Department even released a comment that they have never produced a sign as such. Cute, but not a true place. Try to find a zip code for it.

    While driving around during work, I quite often drive through Wroxeter Ont. Thats not funny in itself, but the sign on the edge of town says "Former Ghost Town". Again not that great but then get to the next town called Gorrie. So you have a former ghost town and gorrie = the makings of a horror movie.

    What's a former ghost town? People settle, everyone moves away, then later people return?
