LOL! His grandson flew F-15s in the 32TFS, Soesterberg AB Netherlands in the 4 years (91-94) I was crewing jets there. Nicest person/pilot I ever met. His Grandfather, Dick Bong was a WWII, P-38 pilot and Ace with 40+ shoot-downs.
What the heck is a "zzyzx", except maybe the last word in the dictionary?
I was thinking the same thing. So had to look it up. Some guy gave it the made up name back in 1944.... zzyzx (z-eye-z-ecks)
interesting... learned something
Last summer on the drive to Branson, MO, we passed the town of Uranus, MO. Guess what they sell there? Fudge. At an actual store called the URANUS FUDGE FACTORY!!! I can't even guess how many jokes my family has made since then about where to get fudge.
I see Bong Rec Area made this list several times. Pretty common among Wisconsinites to joke about that.
The other one nearby is Dyckesville, WI. However innocent the name was intended, it is pronounced such that it suggests a community where a high proportion of lesbians would congregate.

Supermarket in Garden City, KS:
Not such a big deal today but when I was there the locals made sure you knew the right way to pronounce Moscow, Id......
Ooo don't forget Blue Ball and Paradise, PA
Ok, not a town, but...We were in Springfield, MO and had just left the Bass Pro there. We had our friends son with us (12 yo at the time) we drove by a Kum & Go on East Division Street and then past the Cox North Hospital. Never forget what he said "What kind of place is this, you have a Kum & Go place and then a hospital for Cox!". We had to pull over I was laughing so hard!!!!
Driving through Frog Level, VA always makes me smile. Then, not too far away, you can drive through Studley.
I like Smut Eye ....it's in UCLA....you know where that is right ? It's in the (U)pper (C)orner of (L)ower (A)abama.
Not a city name,but a town in Wisconsin has a strip joint,and around the corner is a business named Cox Insurance. Interesting coincidence.
not towns, but signs I've seen, Connecticut has the Gaylord hospital, then there is "Go way" in winthrop, there is "Rocky Road" down the road from me
here is Mo. Blue Eye, Dollittle, Moscow Mills and my favorite Tightwad, Missouri
You guys have Oddville, KY also. I discovered it while looking for the graves of some ancestors who are supposed to be buried near Cynthiana. Someone mentioned something like "Oh, that cemetery is on the road to Oddville" and I thought "Hmmmm; is there more to this that I should know?"
I might get some flack......
