That would be Saskatchewan. We tend to have weird names here for our towns.

Here's some other SK town names

Biggar
Chicken
Cut Knife
Endeavour (my family lives there)
Knee Lake
Hold Fast
Yellow Grass
Porcupine Plain
Quill Lake
Semans
Spy Hill
Drinkwater
Eyebrow
Nut Mountain (Close to where my family lives)
Saltcoats
Bredenbury
Forget (about 45 min from where I live... it's pronounced for-shzay)
Love
Onion Lake
Fort Qu'Appelle (quapell)

And there are a ton more that I think nothing of because I see the name a lot.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Post Script: I used to live in Washington when i was a kid... and I do remember giggling all the way to girl scout camp, as we would drive and yell out the silly names of all the towns that we would pass through. Washington is pretty notorious for silly town names!

We have a lot of "Licks" here in KY. Paint Lick is a real place, and of course "Big Bone Lick State Park".
