Cranky Corner, Uneedus,Chickenbone and Chunky,More Towns With Funny Names
It’s not that hard to figure out why Lafayette is called Lafayette, but according to our City Parish President, Joey Durel, Lafayette wasn’t originally Lafayette. I guess Mr. Durel studied really hard in his Louisiana history classes. But did you ever wonder where towns like Cranky Corner and Uneedus in Tangipahoa Parish and Soso Mississippi got there names? It makes for an interesting read and maybe an interesting road trip. You could tell the kids you were going to Hell, Michigan or maybe going to stop in a fabulous Beaver Lick Kentucky and don’t forget Toad Suck Arkansas. You want to know what’s even more special? You can get t-shirts from all of these places to let your friends know that you are a world traveler.
