Also in Michigan. There's a photo from one of he early Midwest Morris 
(dance) Ales of all the accordionists lined up with a big pile of 
melodeons, concertinas and such, being handed their instrument as 
they pass the "Welcome to Hell" road sign.

And I seem to recall a TV show about touring Norway that included the 
opening line "Hell, like much of the rest of Norway..."

Then there's Embarrass, Minnesota, coldest town in the US outside Alaska.

Happy May Day all!
