The notes about strange city names reminds me of a story my uncle tells.

He was travelling on business, in New Mexico.  He needed to cash a check,
and went to the bank (strangely enough).  He gave his check to the bank
teller, and she looked at it and said "O-co-no-co-mo-co-woc" (actually
'Oconomowoc')  "Gee, that's a funny name for a city!"

My uncle's response was "And Albuquerque isn't?"
