Note: I spent too much time watching the election results last night and didn’t have enough left in me to write a new blog. So here is a repost of a fun one from November of 2014.
In every issue of the Gypsy Journal I always included some of the funny signs we saw in our travels or that our readers shared with us. We were constantly amazed at some of the business names we saw, but sometimes even towns have names that leave you scratching your head and wondering what they were thinking when they named it that.
For example, Hooker, Oklahoma.
And yes, their high school football team is called the Horny Toads. Is this really the best way to deal with teenage hormones gone wild?
Growing up in Hooker, I wonder if the kids hang out in Hickey Park?
Just don’t call these guys until I finish my lunch, okay?
Make me mad and I’ll send the Flippin cops after you!
I think an eight year old boy named this place.
Yes, in the winter, Hell really does freeze over!
I’m pretty sure I do know what they were thinking when they named this place.
We’ve been to Blue Ball and Intercourse, Pennsylvania, but for the most memorable town name, you have to go to Newfoundland.
