I know! We'll call it DILDO!!

This article just proves I can find the most useful things on google.
.
Sure, you may wonder why I'd be google-ing "Dildo" in the first place, but more importantly, look what a gem I came up with:
.
There is a town in Canada (on the east coast) called DILDO.
.
That's right, as in the toy. Apparantly the quaint little coastal town got it's name long before the toy, however they are now sick of tourists snickering as they come through.
.
They are considering changing the name, though some of the younger generation finds it un-necessary.
.
I think it'd be cool to live in a town called Dildo. It's better than the town called Hell.
.
What do you think? Have you heard of any weird town names near where you live?
.
And, here's my first poll ever:

My dad grew up in a town called Humptulips. He used to wear this shirt around that said 'where the fuck is humptulips'. hehe. all class, all the time!!

TD said...

man i feel lefted out. i cant think of a single town around here that has a shock value like that!

That girl said...

Tweets - Dykesville?? Oh my word, is that funny!! I'd love to drive through and mail out a postcard from there.

Annie - I love that your dad has a sense of humour. I bet living in a town called Humptulips he's heard all sorts of jokes,lol.

TD - Don't feel left out, there are no towns around me that have crazy names either. The only one that comes even close, is "Hope" and that's almost likeable.

I would LOVE to live in a town like that....I would be laughing ALL the time!

When I lived in Arkansas...the tiny town between my grandmother's town and mine was "Weinertown".

Can you imagine being a proud resident of Weinertown? HMMMMMM!

Eileen said...

I have nothing to add here. I live in Toronto, the only weird things around here are the people.

That girl said...

Weinertown...I can just see it now. (I have the mental picture of the town mascot in my mind)

Eileen - You are way funnier than you realize. It cracked me right up reading your comment.

I have a picture of the sign for a town in Arizona called "Why".

Seeing as it was sitting in the middle of nowhere, smack in the middle of the desert, the name seemed well chosen.

Yes Dykesville. Its only about a 1000 people. Just a tiny township..

Just telling it like it is said...

I love the heels!! thanks for adding me...I laughted at this post cracked me up!!! I love the facts!! but I have to say before nursing school I could not even say the word dildo without blushing...not a prude...just a little shy...well and the fact that I had to see old man balls and peni...I even had to touch the peni for foley placement in front of some of the wives...talk about breaking out in hivies!!!..Any chance there's a town out there call peni???...

That girl said...

Jazz - I bet a lot of psychologysts would love to live in a town called 'why'? It'd be like a calling...

Tweets - wow. small town.

Just telling - Hmmm, I'm sure if we look hard enough, there's a town called 'penis' somewhere. I wonder where it is, and how far it is from where I am ? Hmmmm.

So, you never told us WHY you were googling dildo! Maybe I don't want to know, though... I'm not old enough to hear it I'm sure!

When you're ready to monetize your blog you could search google adsense for a 'dildo' advert to insert in your post :)

Hahahahahaaaa... everyone would click and you'd make a fortune!

Ha - I've got you beat... I ran across a little article the other day talking about Fucking, which is a very small village in Germany somewhere. Apparently the big problem is the British tourists, who keep stealing the town's signs, which is why there was an article in the first place.
