When you have a name like mine, you normally don't make fun of other people or place's names. In this case, I will make an exception as there are 7 Missouri towns that have names that are so bizarre it's hard to believe they are really town names.

For the record, this is my own list. I was staring at a map of Missouri while the NASCAR race was on to kill time and was amazed to see so many places in my home state with weirder names than me. )For the record, I really am distantly related to the real John Henry "Doc" Holliday so it's not like my parents named me this as a joke, but that's a story for a different day.)

Here are 7 Missouri places with names that really need an explanation.
