The world is full of wonderful, weird, and wild places. From Point Stupid and Mount Dick to Lake Cock and the River Suck, there are hundreds of towns, cities, mountains, deserts, and bodies of water around the globe that defy description and explanation--until now. In this book, the secret histories, mysteries, and peccadilloes of the world’s most laudably laughable places are revealed for the very first time (that we know of) for your reading pleasure. With sidebars that explain the etymology and origin of the place names, along with each place’s most famous residents, titillating scandals, and claims to fame, you’ll find this one-of-a-kind tell-all guide as funny as it is fascinating.
Welcome to Horneytown, North Carolina, Population: 15--because no matter where you may find yourself right now, it’s good to know that there’s always somewhere worse!
