The Top Ten

1 Saint Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, Quebec Saint Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, Quebec

Oh yes, I love it. It's also at #1 on my list Funniest Genuine City, Town or Village Names in Canada - Metal_Treasure

The only town in the whole world that has two exclamation marks in its name. That's hilarious. - BKAllmighty

This sounds like someone trying to say St. Louis, but for some reason, the find it really funny - SpectralOwl

Ha Ha! Is A Name? - AlphaQ

2 Dildo, Newfoundland Dildo, Newfoundland

Who the heck names their town after a dirty word, anyway?

No explanation needed. - SpectralOwl

4 Boring, Oregon Boring, Oregon

Gravity Falls was based on this city, ironically being the setting of one of the most interesting shows I have ever seen. - 445956

Apperantely, the settler of this city's last name was boring, Literally. - SpectralOwl

Family on a road trip
father "well, kiddos, this is Boring"
son "yes, yes it is.." - EliHbk

5 Los Banos, California Los Banos, California

I think someone tried to create a city in southern California while trying to make the name fit in by using spanish. Unfortunately, the results turned out embarrassing. (Los Banos is spanish for The Bathrooms) - SpectralOwl

Nice try by a know-it-all 10 year old. "Los Banos" means "the Baths", and is the name given to the region by Spanish [from SPAIN] land-grant ranchers, due to the natural springs that irrigate the wetlands, making it a good place for livestock.

6 Punkeydoodles Corners, Ontario Punkeydoodles Corners, Ontario

I was born in Kitchener, Ontario, in a hospital that is no more than 15 minutes away from Punkeydoodles Corners. I've driven through it dozens of times. Half the time there are missing signs everywhere. Kids are always stealing them. Why am I closely connected to TWO places on this list? Ontario is weird, guys. - BKAllmighty

The town for clowns - SpectralOwl

7 Ball's Falls, Ontario Ball's Falls, Ontario

I live, literally, minutes away from Ball's Falls. I never thought it's name would end up here. It's a beautiful conservation area that I visit every year in autumn. - BKAllmighty

Don't Even ask me why they call it that - SpectralOwl

8 Ding Dong, Texas Ding Dong, Texas
9 Hell, Michigan Hell, Michigan

I was born in Hell, I grew up in Hell, I became famous in hell, I got married in hell, I raised kids in Hell, and I will die in Hell, Michigan - SpectralOwl

Welcome to Hell! (haha, I know several songs with this title that can become theme songs for this place) - Metal_Treasure
