“Most unfortunate” town name

Toad Suck, Arkansas, was voted “most unfortunate” town name.

A list of the top ten "most unfortunate" names is below. I find it interesting that even though the polled respondents lived in the U.S., U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, that all the "most unfortunate" names were in the United States. Maybe these other folks just don't know how to get creative when it comes to town names.

Toad Suck, Ark.
Climax, Ga.
Boring, Ore.
Hooker, Okla.
Assawoman, Md.
Belchertown, Mass.
Roachtown, Ill.
Loveladies, N.J.
Squabbletown, Calif.
Monkey's Eyebrow, Ky.
