Bird Widder, I love that headline!

Here in Oregon we have "Boring" and "Greed."
(How about "Boring Man Weds Woman From Greed?")
<p>Then there's Darling, Pennsylvania, which is not too far from Intercourse.
<p>Illinois has a "Fishhook" and a "Sandwich."
<p>New Mexico, of course, has "Truth Or Consequences."
<p>Then there's Boca Raton --i.e., "Rat Mouth"--Florida.
<p>Davenport (Iowa) is not far from Footstool (which is in Iowa or Illinois--can't
recall which).

Liland, Your mention of Humptulips reminds me of a town sign I always used to see when driving on certain New York state roads:  Coxsackie (sp?)

And then there's Coalingua, California.
