Texas Tidbits: More Funny Town Names!

One of the most popular and fun topics to write about on Three States Plus One is odd or funny town names. I looked through the blog archives, and it has been since October 22, 2010 that we did such a post. The topic had frankly skipped my mind until yesterday when I was checking out some "hubs" (web pages) on a site called HubPages. I ran across HubPages about nine months ago when I read about it on another site named MakeUseOf. Anyway, I joined HubPages with the intent of doing some writing and blogging within that community. I started posting on HubPages about a week ago, and my articles have gotten some nice reviews. Plus, the other "hubbers" (those who write and post on the site) seems to be a good group of people with more than their fair share of smarts because they give my stuff good reviews.  :)  But seriously folks....While perusing the works of some of the other hubbers, I ran across a writer with the handle of KCC Big Country who had done a post on HubPages similar to the ones I did on this blog here, here, here and here.
A couple of Texas town names that KCC Big Country found inclded Alligator located in Bell County and Bee House in Coryell County.

KCC Big Country put a lot more effort into her post than I did mine and she came up with some bee-yutes. Since she did all the leg work, I wan tot send her some page hits for a job well done. The particular page to which I am referring is located here. There are some classic small town names. While you're over at HubPages, look for my contributions by searching for "FishFearMe". One more thing, post a comment on KCC Big Country's "hub" and let her know that you found out about it here.


  1. You didn't mention it, but I guess you know about Dish, Texsa. Original name was Clark, population a little over 200. Dish Network made the town a deal, that every one would have free satellite TV for 10 years or so if they would change the name of the town.

    Another great article, Toby

  2. Bob...I knew about Dish, but had forgotten it until I saw it again yesterday. Thanks for the kind words, amigo.
