OK, let's be honest, this is coming from the 10-year-old part of our brains. We think of these things from time to time because we're just immature.

Now that we've made that clear, there are several towns in and around the Southern Tier of New York and the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania that have interesting names that tend to make the dirty part of our minds come to life.

I'm sure it wasn't intended that way when the founders named these towns, and we should be a bit more mature, but what's the fun in that? Here we go in no particular order.

  • 1

    Beaver Meadow, NY

    It's a small town between Norwich and Otselic on Route 16. I've never been there, but looking at a map, it looks to be a small farming community.

  • 2

    Choconut Center, NY

    Choconut Center's four corners are at East Maine/Lewis Roads and Airport Road and contains the Little Choconut Creek.

  • 3

    Butternuts, NY

    Butternuts, NY is located near Gilbertsville in southwestern Otsego County.

  • 4

    Johnson City, NY

    Just because 'Johnson' is in the name. What more can I say?

  • 5

    Beaver Dams, NY

    Beaver Dams is a small town just off Route 414 between Corning and Watkins Glen. You man have driven by or though it while on the way to the Watkins Glen Race Track.

  • 6

    Mount Pleasant, NY

    OK, it's actually in Westchester County, but it has a pleasant sound to it, so I included it.

  • 7

    Hop Bottom, PA

    Hop Bottom is a borough in Susquehanna County, PA. You've probably been there before (I have) or maybe you live there. Good for you.

  • 8

    Coxsakie, NY

    Coxsakie, NY is in Greene County bordering the Hudson River. It even has it's own Island on the Hudson. Looks like you'd have to swim or take a boat to get there.

  • 9

    Hancock, NY

    Really? Does every comedian who travels to Binghamton through Hancock have to make a joke about the town's name? Enough already! We've heard it over and over again.

  • 10

    Port Dick, NY

    Yes, it's really Port Dickinson -- a village bordering Binghamton. But really, who calls it that? Takes too long to say.
