City Names That Make You Hungry!
┗ Sandwich, Massachusetts
┗ Sugar City, Idaho, US
┗ Tea, South Dakota, US
I remember being mad at God, as an ankle-biter, about the weird surname he's given me birth in. To top that, a weird hometown to live in. I mean, imagine my state in interviews, or when I have to refer to my home town in applications. You too might be having some complaints about the city you live in. Some town names make you feel as if they ran short of alphabets in the English language, while some names like Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch make you wish it was better if it had no alphabet. Some names are so random, you feel they've been founded by lazy toddlers. To conclude it all, the world is full of freaky names, and consider yourself lucky if you don't happen to be a part of any such city.

Entertainism has drafted a list of such unusual names that are sure to instill feelings of astonishment or embarrassment to its inhabitants, and for now, to the reader. Have fun reading them.
