Reminds me of some of the funny names people give their places out in Cherry Grove. "Shocking Poverty" is one of them.

I have a couple of friends with big places and they gave them pretentious names. I think people who give their places names are silly. I'd probably give my mansion a "funny" name if I could afford one.

A very nice LGBT campground in northern Pennsylvania chose an unimaginative name. It is called "The Woods."
|by Danny Boy||reply 5||06/22/2013|
You'd think they could at least name it "Into the Woods" R5.

You would be less impressed if you learned that this renaming of towns with funny nicknames was a staple of Detroit culture fifty years ago, and that's certainly where South Florida got it from.
