“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

As far as silly names are concerned there are no boundaries.

It doesn’t seem to matter whether it is a place, a person or a product silly names are there.

And here! 

Enjoy.

Yet more silly names to amuse.

I’m still trying to figure out whether these are a help or a hindrance. As far as businesses go they sure do make them memorable, but in a good way or a bad way?

I’ll let you decide.

Enjoy.

Seems to be no end of silly names either for people or businesses.

Here are another dozen to make you smile, even if the owners don’t know what it is you are smiling at.

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

For a few weeks I have been running a short series of silly but amusing place names.

Today, on the same theme but slightly different, I have another selection of people and companies with just as silly names as the places we looked at.

Again the big question is why don’t they change them? I certainly would.

In the meantime I just laugh at them.

I hope you do too.

Enjoy!

I can’t make up my mind whether it’s a good thing that I don’t live in some of these places.

They certainly make good conversation starters – and maybe sometimes finishers!

Here is the latest selection

Part four of the silly place names.

The big question everyone – except possibly those who live there – asks is “Why?”.

I have no idea what the answer is.

But enjoy anyway.

How would you like to live in some of these places?

The towns may be okay but the names certainly leave a lot to be desired.

I wonder why they never changed them?

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

Last week’s post was a selection of towns that had been given names that, to put it mildly, left a lot to be desired.

Today is part two of what I have called the Silly Named Game with another selection of towns that you wouldn’t really want to have as your address if you didn’t have to.

I should say that the whole idea came to me when I was remembering the time I spent doing some business in Nevada. While there we came across a town called Pahrump (you can read more about it here if you are interested http://www.pahrumpnv.org/ ) and both my colleague and myself thought the name quite unusual.

He said to me, “I wonder why they called the town that?”

I must have been in good form that day because I was able to tell him straight off, “Oh, I know the answer to that.”

“Go on then,” he said. “Tell me.”

“Well,” I began. “This is cowboy country and one day, way back when, a couple of good ole boys were riding, one slightly behind the other, through the desert and came across this piece of land.”

“This here would make a good place to settle,” the first cowboy said.

“Sure would,” agreed the other.

“What do you reckon we should call it?” the cowboy in front asked  –  and as he did so the guy behind him raised a hip a let go with a rather loud fart.

“Pahrump?” the first cowboy questioned, thinking that was what he had heard the other one say. “Well, I guess it’s as good a name as any.”

“And that’s how the town became known as Pahrump,” I told my colleague.

I’d be the first to admit that it’s not the official explanation of how the town was named, but it’s a better version as far as I’m concerned and a warning to one and all never to name a town when all you have had to eat for a week is beef jerky and beans.

But enough of that.

Here is today’s selection of the Silly Named Game.

Enjoy!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

A few months ago, I can’t remember exactly without doing a search on the blog, I did a short series that I called ‘The Silly Name Game’. Unsurprisingly it featured people with silly names. And some of them were very silly indeed. Here are a couple of examples to get you in the mood.

Silly name

But names are inflicted on people. They don’t really get to choose them. If they are lucky the girls ease their pain by ditching a silly or embarrassing birth name for that of a husband, but the guys are stuck, unless they change the ones they get at birth by deed poll or some other official device.

However, as luck would have it, people don’t tend to find their own names humorous or unusual. Familiarity I suppose dulls the senses over the years.

But the question that puzzles me most is, why, when people do get to choose a name, like a name of a town, for example, do they choose something absolutely awful?

If you have never noticed or thought about that you have an opportunity now because this post is about towns that have been named rather badly by someone who really should have known better. Personally I think large amounts of either stupidity or alcohol (or perhaps a combination of both) may have had something to do with it.

Here you go.

As always, enjoy.

If you run a business, especially one that involves selling to the public, then the one thing you really want is a memorable stand out sign to advertise your location.

But… and it’s a big BUT.. you want them to be memorable and stand out for the right reasons.

How do you think this lot did?

Enjoy.
