Origin of its unusual name
Dickshooter, Idaho received its rather suggestive name from the man -- Dick Shooter -- who initially established a homestead there.
Ha, I just found the website that's from myself. We're so going there.

And this is a new goldmine of locations for us: Unusual, bizarre and humorous names of towns in the United States

Personally, I may just avoid Dickshooter if I make another trip to the US. Or go there wearing a suit of armour. Wouldn't want it to live up to its name, you know.

YOU might want to avoid it for sure but there are bunches of women who buy Alaska Men magazine who would consider it just by the name.

Too bad there's only caribou there.

It's only been open 8.5 hours or so. I think that's not too bad!

It has been fairly quiet since Serena left, though.

By the looks of the masterlist, the PA locations we've hit are Centralia and Bird-in-Hand. I think the latter's a pretty good one.

Haha, there's a Bethlehem in Texas.

I imagine a lot of Texans would really think that's where Jesus was born.

There's also a Redwine in Tennessee.

Should probably have hid that from Ax.

I imagine it would be. I also imagine that I'm over what I was spazzing out about last night...but we'll see how long that fantasy lasts.

And when they read about places like Memphis and Smyrna in books on ancient civilisations, they don't realise the references are to places outside Tennessee.

The story I told earlier about the guy who tried to convince me that New Zealand is north of Australia, plus another story I have of a guy who'd never even heard of New Zealand to begin with, both come from my trip to TN.
