America has plenty of smaller communities with unique names, but some sound a little stranger than others. Some town titles seem highly provocative, and some cities are named after game shows. Honestly, it's difficult not to laugh at these peculiar American town names.

Many town names are humorous, while some are evocative of tragic incidents involving death or conflict. And interested tourists rarely visit those sad locations, for the most part. Try visiting some of these absurd US towns, though, if you want to make light of American history.
