Today, I have a cousin visiting. Since I'm posting names, I mention him because he has a perfectly decent name. He is a handsome dude and his name is Robert. We've called him Bob for most of his life. But lately he insists on calling himself Joebob. I accused him once of trying to be a hillbilly, but, for some unfathomable reason, he likes Joebob. He is a snowbird; lives in Washington and escapes to sunny California for the winter. We'll probably take some pictures and I'll post them and maybe you can tell me why a very dignified man would want to be called Joebob?
I'm a bit off topic. These towns from Funny Name USA are anything but dignified either. Hopefully I'm not repeating. But here goes:
Makes you wonder, why Chunky?
Why name your town after a tightwad. They couldn't all be tightwads?
Yuk. Where ya from? Worms, Nebraska? Did I hear that right?
Dummer, New Hampshire
I gotta quit commenting or someone might shoot me.

Maybe this is where my cousin came from?

I've been there too. You know, you just have to keep a straight face. It is a very devout and proper
city with many hardworking farmers who drive old fashioned buggy's and don't have electricity or modern conveniences. I've forgotten what religion they are but they attract a lot of tourists.
