Ely BS: Oxymoron place names (83* d) RE: BS: Oxymoron place names 17 Jun 03

What is it with flat states naming things for hills and mountains?:

Mount Vernon, Iowa--Iowa can be hilly, but "Mount" anything is stretching it.

Rosehill, Texas--flat as a floor and not a flower in sight, of any description.

Round Top, Texas--round top of WHAT?

Texas is full of kooky place names. Cut 'N' Shoot is north of here. There's an exit off of Highway 59 North to Angus and Mustang. I drive through Mustang Ridge (you guessed it, no ridge and no mustangs) on the way to San Marcos. A friend of mine lives not too far from Dime Box.
