Toad Suck, Arkansas? Obviously all those toad lickers are stoners. But I looked up Hell, MI and they are a bit odd. You can eat at the Hell Hole Diner 🤮 You can pick up some Scream Souvenirs (maybe some Black Sabbath or Slayer cds) and you can even graduate from the Damnation University (good luck with that diploma). But here's what I like. You can even become the mayor of Hell for a day. Can you imagine how much stuff I could screw up in 24 hours if I was in a position of authority? Especially if I was medicated? The possibilities are endless! 😈

Thanks for all the laugh people. Being mayor in Hell for a day, what a cool thing to be (maybe). It got me thinking of songs, since AC/DC and Sabbath was mentioned; The mayor might wanna play a specific CD on their local radio station 24/7 during his/hers reign? Fool for a day (king for a lifetime) by Faith No More. Damnation University is where stuff happens, maybe Bon Scott was there to? Rock´n roll damnation.

Anyway, more places with "odd" names; Hong Kong. In english it means Flower harbour. It got the name due to the specific smell - the trade deals where spice and other specific goods where traded, although in various places on the net the name in english is Fragrant harbour. The actual name is however Heung Gong, the chinese language has +1,000 different dialects where Canton (sometimes called cantonese) Mandarin and Haka being the biggest. In all 3 Kong means smell.

Hiroshima - Japan - means Wide Island (my late wifes birthplace).

And as I wrote before, biatch is not a place, but look for Bitsch in Switzerland. A small guided tour https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzVlezl1L_M

Is that heaven then 🤣

Not really. There is a whole big hunk of land called Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Where your nearest neighbor could be 25 miles away. It's connected to Wisconsin which is why all the UP residents are Green Bay Packers fans. Look at the Detroit Lions' record over the last six decades and there's your answer. Actually you would need to go further north to reach heaven. Into Canada where they don't shoot each other down in the streets. 😇

I was speaking biblically, but geographically could be used as a metaphor I suppose 😃

Turkey, living in a city close to Istanbul.

I was expecting to see many Americans of course. But the amount of Dutch and German people really surprised me.

Nursel Gurler is one of my favs
