City Names that Make Me Smile, or, The Fruits of Sleep Deprivation

Kalamazoo

Walla Walla

Hell

Texarkana

Kennebunkport

Weehawken

Hialeah

Ho-Ho-Kus

Rancho Cucamonga

Lake Titicaca

Albuquerque

Nome

Here in the Northeast, there’s a convenience store chain called Wawa. There's a city called Mahwah. I don't know if there's a Mahwah Wawa, but there should be. I’m waiting for them to open a store in Walla Walla, so there could be a Walla Walla Wawa.

In Princeton, there’s a small shuttle train the locals call the Dinky, which has a stop near a Wawa. If a similar train were built in Walla Walla, you could catch the Walla Walla Wawa Dinky. I could say that phrase all day long.

What city names make you smile?

Sleep…need sleep…
