Do you know of a ridiculously-named town or city?

Obama, Japan. No, it wasn't named for Barack.

@saab,
I drive past Sandy Balls whenever I go to Wimborne Market. It's a campsite/country club so there should be no problem changing its name, but there's no indication that it will.

@saab,
And your sandy balls are obscuring my home city. Kindly move them to one side.

@Setanta,

From all the street signs, this one is the only one that looks "real" to me. ("real" with the meaning that is not Photoshop, or a street sign made by someone in particular and not so by the city or state government.

@carloslebaron,
Try using Google Street view, if it makes you feel better. Start with this one:

Monkey's Eyebrow, Kentucky is not photoshopped. I've seen the exit signs for it dozens of times on the Interstate, and i stopped there once for gas. I know it exists because i've been there.

The Kickapoo are an aboriginal tribe, perhaps a sept of the Potawatomi, who still exist in Indiana, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. The place name is found in Indiana, Illinois, Missour and the aforementioned states.

@Setanta,
I know of the Kickapoo. Still a funny sounding name for a town. In the Li'l Abner comic strip, Al Capp wrote of Kickapoo Joy Juice, an alcoholic beverage distilled in a cave with an undisclosed location (for revenue reasons) near the Dogpatch area by characters Lonesome Polecat & Hairless Joe.
