Odd Place Names

For those bored with Whisper's Word Game - here's the odd Place Name Game. OK, it's not a game but then neither is the word thing. This DOES have rules though - you have to include a photo of the place name (can be googled but not photoshopped). I started a similar thread a while back and I've either deleted it or lost it, so I'll repost a few.

Not exactly funny, but makes you wonder how bad things have to be before this is your claim to fame.

Berkeley, CA was one of the early "Nuclear Weapon Free" cities. It was something like a $50 fine if you detonated a nuke in the city limits.
