Flippin Arkansas is up there on my list.

It's strange to drive through that town and see a bus that says Flippin Middle School, the Flippin Church of God, or the Flippin Florist.

There are a couple places in Virginia that aren't all that funny, but makes me think hmmmm, where did that name come from?

Bottoms Bridge, off I64 between Richmond and Norfolk.

Squirrel Level Road, crosses I85 south of Richmond. squirrel level???

:confused:

Yep, Squirrel Level Road makes me wonder everytime I drive past it too. :confused:

This one's hard to read but it always made me laugh. It's the Amigone Funeral Home (Yeah, you're gone).

Who the heck named this place?

And check the name of the road it's on. Which may explain this...

Dry Prong, LA
Nothing but a speed trap when I was in college. From the pop estimate, doesn't look like anything's changed...

I just remembered there is a decent little Mexican restaurant a few miles east in Gassville

Rod, I think that "trip" may explain all the ghosts in the old 197? You needed the saltwater series 197.

A few places come to mind:

Hell, Michigan

As you travel I-75 north of Detroit, you will notice

Exit 69/Big Beaver Rd.
