Anytime you hit the highway in Texas you're bound to drive by a dead animal on the side of the road. You're also just as likely to drive through a town with a really weird name. I'll be honest, many of these weird town names make me giggle like a little boy that just farted. Just makes you wonder how, or why, some of these names made the final cut. Then again, if given the chance to name my own town, I'd probably come up with something weird too.

Heck, there's a town in Texas named "Nameless", which is basically a ghost town. There's also a town named "Edge", although it's nowhere near the edge of Texas.

The Lone Star state is a big one, so we'll visit just a small sample of the funny and weird names of some of our towns. However, if you've got a name to add to the list, make sure you add it to the comments section below.

So, without further adieu, let's take a look at some weird town names here in Texas:

  • Bacon
  • Bangs
  • Beans
  • Bee Cave
  • Bigfoot
  • Blackjack
  • Bootleg
  • Bugtussle
  • Cat Spring
  • Cut and Shoot
  • Dime Box
  • Ding Dong
  • El Gato
  • Earth
  • Hoop and Holler
  • Hornbeak
  • Knickerbocker
  • Latex
  • Log Cabin
  • Muleshoe
  • Nada
  • Noodle
  • Oatmeal
  • Raisin
  • Scissors
  • Snook
  • Tarzan
  • Uncertain
  • Whiteface
  • Who’d Thought It (apparently that one is a ghost town)

Granted, most of those are super small communities and probably wouldn't even qualify as a town - but they're still dang funny. Then again, nothing can beat Intercourse, Pennsylvania. The inner child in me giggles every time.

I'm contemplating tossing those names in the ol' GPS and see where it takes me. Just to hear that snobby GPS voice attempt to pronounce those names will make it all worth it.
