GUEST,Ely BS: Forgotten town names (50) RE: BS: Forgotten town names 02 May 02

I live 20 miles from Tomball, Texas, (named for a guy named Thomas Ball), and maybe 50 from Cut And Shoot. There's a sign on Interstate 45 in northeast Texas that labels the exit to Angus and Mustang (on the same sign, no less). There's also a Bronco, Texas, but I haven't been there yet. When I drove to college in Iowa, I'd go through Y City, Arkansas (located at a fork in the road). When I was a kid in Colorado, we'd go up into the mountains to visit Silverplume, Blackhawk, and Nevadaville (I don't know if it was named for the state or because it was at a high elevation and got snowed on a lot). A friend of mine once drove through Tightwad, Missouri. And there's always Bird-In-Hand and Intercourse, Pennsylvania. Heaven forbid any of them ever be renamed.
