(Newser) – There are so many towns in the great expanse of the United States that a few of them are bound to have absurd names. (The little Irish town of Effin isn't the only spot struggling with a name that makes us say, "Huh?") BuzzFeed runs down some of its favorites:

  1. Cookietown, Oklahoma
  2. Bumpass, Virginia
  3. Toad Suck, Arkansas
  4. Santa Claus, Georgia
  5. Whynot, Mississippi
  6. Cheesequake, New Jersey
  7. Peculiar, Missouri
