Silly placenames (no DWJ content)

We can't compete with the classical English place names, but Texans have 
developed their own style.

For the simply loopy, we have Ding Dong, Heckville, Dime Box, Bigfoot, 
and Needville.

If your tastes tend more toward violence, we can oblige with Point 
Blank, Cut and Shoot, and Gunbarrel City.

The optimistically inclined can visit Eden, Paradise, Utopia and New Hope.

And those not sure whether they're coming or going can pass through 
Uncertain, Ponder, Happy, and Hext.
