According to Dial Global a new poll across seven English-speaking countries has chosen Toad Suck, Arkansas, as having the “most unfortunate” town name in the United States. Toad Suck, an unincorporated community in Perry County, took top dishonors, edging out Climax, Georgia, and Boring, Oregon. The poll was conducted by the genealogy site Findmypast.com, and polled respondents in the U.S. U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Toad Suck reportedly got its name from a once popular drinking location for boaters on the Arkansas River. The toadsuck.org site explains, “While they waited, they refreshed themselves at the local tavern there, to the dismay of the folks living nearby, who said: ‘They suck on the bottle ‘til they swell up like toads.’ Hence, the name Toad Suck.” The Top 10 list towns on the list:


1. Toad Suck, Arkansas

2. Climax, Georgia

3. Boring, Oregon

4. Hooker, Oklahoma

5. Assawoman, Maryland

6. Belchertown, Massachusetts
